Hello, recently i salvaged my old broken mp3 player to see if i can pawn some of the stuff inside it. I had dropped the player and the joystick broke therefore it was unusable. I wanted to get some form of replacement for an mp3 player so i decided to set about getting a large mini sd card for my c550

this was the mp3 player

So i started opening up my mp3 player when i came across a hardrive called the Seagate 5gb ST1 Drive.

I have looked around on the net and it came up with things about Compact Flash cards that look like this Posted Image (plz note this was one on ebay Not Mine)

My card has a ribbon on it connecting to the circuitry

here are the pictures i took.

So as you might be able to tell im really quite puzzled.

I need help from you guys

Questions.


1.) What is this?

2.) What is this worth

3.) How much should i sell it for

4.) Do you think any one would buy it

5.) Should i sell it with the other 64mb CF card

6.) Should i sell it with the mp3 player circuitry

7.) Are 4gb Mini Sd Cards availiby yet.

8.) How much would i get for a 512mb mini sd card.



Thank you guys so much in advance

you see im really glad i found this as i have a feeling it mite be worth a little sum

I have no idea about the other questions, but :
7. No. At least not to the likes of you or I.
8. Moby Memory sell them new for £23.99 so, second hand, I wouldn't expect more than £15.
