    Depending on what converter program you use that movie will be 150 Meg to 250 Meg. I got my 1gB micro SD card free (promotional item). If that hadn't of been the case I would have found the cheapest 2GB card and boguht that.

    Always better to go bigger, especially if you want to get lots of music on there. I mean 1GB is good, 2GB is twice as good

    Plus you dont want to have to switch out multiple 1gb cards since they are behind the battery and all =\

    Its not the size of the wave, but the motion of the ocean.

    ^^ hehe vanilla

    chad, i would also make sure that you are running v.64 device OS or newer. some have gone out to buy 2gb sd cards only to find out they are running v.42 (that version will only accept 1gb). but...even if you did buy the larger we (pinstackers) could help you upgrade.

    third line down
    mine says: v4.2.0.71 (Platform 2.2.0.41)

    in this case gigabytes have no motion, as the MicroSD is solid state, so your argument is BUNK!

    I have the 2GIG my self, music, movies, and other small programs I use at work. If you go to newegg or other sites you can get a 2GIG pretty cheap. Also you would not need to watch your available space as much as you do on a 1GIG.
    Just make sure your OS supports 2GIG microSD cards before you buy one.

    Go BIG or go home!

    Re: Does Size Matter

    Yeah i just grabbed a 2gb from newegg for about $44 at the time, they screwed up my shipping and it came in 9 days instead of 2days(i bought 2day fedex) so it wasnt that bad to get it for only $44. Most of it is music, a movie to keep me busy at a doctors office, and the rest is my file storage for a MSD. i'd replace my USB flash drive with it but carrying that huge cable around to connect it isnt worth it atm. if only it had a retractable usb connection

    So no v.42 won't but like suggested there are plenty of people here that will help you upgrade. Plus just do some searches on these forums. Plenty of indepth articles about upgrading your OS.
