    Did I buy the wrong thing?? (MicroSD vs. MiniSD 1 GB memory card)

    Advertisement



    Last week I bought a regular Sandisk 1 GB memory card because I remember someone here talking about it. Of course when I received it in the mail I realized it's much too large for the Pearl since the spot they give you to insert a memory card is tiny. So I consulted my Pearl manual and it said I need a MicroSD card. Well silly me started searching ebay for MiniSD memory cards and bought the best one I could find. Now I'm wondering if I made the wrong choice AGAIN. So can someone tell me if the SanDisk MiniSD card will work on my Pearl or do I have to sell them both on Ebay??

    Micro SD does not equal Mini SD. Third time should be a charm.

    You need a MICRO SD card. Anything else will not fit.

    OK, I will resist the temptation to play Mr. Obvious here....

    ,,,but the Pearl manual and even the online demos are just loaded with useful and accurate information about your Pearl. Heck, there's even a lot of great info on this very forum, hidden under the secret Search button above..... [shhhhhhhhh.... don't tell anyone about it!]

    Also make sure if you get a MicroSD if you get an adapter for regular SD it will be located inside of it like mine did in the package.

    Thanks for the info. I have another question....is the T-Flash feature useful? And I have OS 4.2.0.64 so can I get the 2GB memory card without having to worry about my BB to malfunction?

    .64 can handle 2GB MICRO SD just fine.

    Don't worry, its actually a really common mistake. I blame manufacturers for refusing to actually collaborate on anything. Its taken, what, 10 years for us to get to the point where even a small portion of new portable devices can charge from the same plug? They are advancing, just for the sake of having new products to sell, and there is an almost intentional level of obfuscation associated with every advance, just to keep people guessing.

    If I were doing your rounds, I'd make the same mistakes.

    "Doctor, I don't think these pain killers you gave me are working!"
    "They should, I found 'em in my girlfriend's purse... Oh wait, these are birth control pills!"
    "Oh! Well that would explain why my nipples are so delightfully tender..."

    It would be like that, except someone would probably die. So don't feel bad.

    peace,
    sam

    DrSuha: I noticed that your question "...is the T-Flash feature useful?" was overlooked...

    T-flash, short for transflash, is the former name for the microSD card type... It does not indicate anything special about the card - it is just another name.

    Thanx for explaining lux. It's not that serious to me so I don't mind the jokes
