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

On either side of the unit there may be levers you can pull up, or one center lever, otherwise you can generaly prop it up a little bit and it will slide right out (before putting in new memory make sure the mobo can detect it otherwise its a waste of time) make sure to be careful when handling memory, the oil on your fingers can damage the contact and so forth.
Note : a little force is good, if you feel liek you might break it stop! and do NOT use any tools
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
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.
