Can I use 256M in Axim

I am curious about the memory expansion. All the spec's I have read say 64M or 128M SD/CF expansion card(s) can be used. Will the Axim also support 256M SD or CF expansion cards?

Re: Can I use 256M in Axim

Pretec, a company that makes compact flash cards, just introduced 1.5, 2.0, and 3.0 GB Compact Flash cards this week. It will be interesting to see if PDA's can take full adavantage of having that kind of storage, although the cards are quite expensive right now. If interested, you can see the review of the cards at

Not sure about the SD but I don't see why not, as for CF I'm positive it'll support ANY size cf card out there...

Axim x5 sd not reading


I would think it is having more trouble with the adapter than the actual card. It could also be the storage size of the card that is the problem as well. Try a regular 2GB SD Card and see if it works. If it does, then it is probably just the adapter.

Can I use Standard 4G or 8G SD or Cf cards in a Dell Axim X5?


SD cards must be SD not SDHC, there is not an SDHC driver for the X5. You can find regular SD cards up to 4G.

CF is no problem, all flash based CF cards will work. Microdrives can be problematic.

Speed of CF vs SD in Axim


The reason CF COULD be faster is that it is a parallel connection (16bit IIRC) while SD/MMC is serial in nature. Now, assuming the INTERFACE were the limiting factor in the speed this could become significant. Unfortunately the interface is NOT the limit (in most cases), the limit is the actual fetching of data from the memory itself. Being Flash it is nowhere near as fast as some of the other types of memory we are used to. It is especially slow when being written to. Newer cards out there are faster then older ones, but in the end I doubt you would notice much if any difference between the speed of a CF versus an SD/MMC card

Help : Can I access Memorysticks on AXIM


Since a SD memory card is about the same size [width and thickness] as a Memory Stick, I doubt there will ever be an adapter available between these two formats. There just isn't any room unless they came up with a very large adapter which would stick out and be unwieldly. You can get Compact Flash adapters (which are much larger) from a company called Pretec for about US$59.00, plus I'm sure there are others. I use a full sized PC Card adapter on my laptop to convert between the SD Memory card for my Axim X5 and the SmartMedia card for my digital camera and MP3 player.

Secure Digital Wireless card?


No. The secure digital on the Axim only supports memory cards. If you want to use anything else it will have to be for the cf in the Axim. Devices for wifi, bluetooth, and modems are more readily available for cf and are lower priced at the moment too.
