SD/MMC Cards

26 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

The SPV takes SD/MMC cards from popular manufacturers... all cards should work properly... SD (Secure Digital) cards are usually faster and more expensive...

There have also been rumours of SD cards having digital security (hence the name) to prevent piracy on MP3's and other media...?

Any info on that?

They do, but only if you choose to use it.

I have a 64MB MMC in my SPV now, filled with MP3s... Sweet!

I would guess he means the 256 SD cards not a bad price

I would recommend sd definately! They are capable of 4* the speed of the MMC cards

I have found a 128mb sd card for £53!

They are £129 in PC World!!!!!!

Dabs.com, Scan.co.uk I hear also supposed to carry them. All prices Ive seen so far are around the £50 mark for the 128mb version.

Beware with 7dayshop, they take a long time to complete your order. About 10 days it will take from online order to delivery. Pretty poor in this day and age. I won't have my SD card before I have to decide if I am to send my SPV back!! They are in Guernsey which is why it takes so long.

Got a 256Mb SD card from www.scan.co.uk this week for 108 GBP (+VAT i think) and works a treat...its now filled with MP3s etc.

Only gripe is that if left uncharged my phone would run out of charge b4 all the MP3s played..lol! That aside its still wicked tho.

I order the 64mb card from 7day Shop last Sunday (01/12) for £34.95. I also paid for the fast delivery so it arrived on Thursday morning.

I have got about 25 songs on it. I converted them from 128/160kbps MP3's to 80Kbps wma files. I should say that most of the songs are average length and there are about four 8 minute longs tracks so I could have probably got a bit more on it.

I have found that 64k gives reasonable quality but if you have songs with a lot of bass on them then they can distort a little.

I picked up my 128MB SD card for about £43 inc Vat and Shipping Through ebay.

It takes about a week to come from the states. The seller was topdot7 and you can pay through credit/debit card via paypal and billpoint.

These are the cheapest i could find. They are the SanDisk Make. :D

do you need to copy any files over when you swap SD cards, also do you need to power off first.

Depends...Do you have files you need on it? IE have you installed applications to your card?

If so you'll need to copy them (and the file structure they are in) to retain functionality.

also do you need to power off first?

Nope = hot pluggable!

:D

Surely transfer via the cradle is so f***g slow!!! I'd like to get that 256MB + PC card writer (for mostly all memcards) from valuemedia. Pretty sure it's been mentioned, but can't be bothered to check - for those of you who can't be bothered either, there you go:
