Cripes! I'll take your advise and just use the camera format. Intersting stuff though Vox.

Anyway - back to the thread - how does ValueMedia stack-up against your supllier/s on price?

We'll I'm using Microdrive and SM which both work fast and smooth no probs. However, if big CF that worked OK in my 602 got cheaper, I'd be tempted by 512-1Gb. Up till now it's only been the 30X and greater cards that posters report near MD speeds.

Don't forget the move from 256Mb to 512Mb and above, is another leap in card format change, so you can't assume if 256 works well, then 512/1Gb will do the same.

You can do your own tests by writing a BIG TIFF to say a SM card (The fastest) and then to CF, timing the save time from amber led back to green with a stop watch, repeat as many times on the CF to fill the card.
