I am looking for a less expensive memory card for my A540, but I don't know much about the memory cards. I know that sandisk is a reputable company but the 1Gb card at circuit city is about $55 and its expensive. However I think the kingston and the transcend card are relatively inexpensive. so I would like to know has any one have any problems with any of these two cards. which one should I buy. need suggestions urgently

I don't know where you are, but I assume that you're in the States somewhere because you mentioned Circuit City. In the Chicago area, Walgreens has the SanDisk 1-gig SD card on sale for $20 with no rebates, which is a pretty good deal. This is the standard speed, not the Ultra II, but for a 540 it should work pretty well for you. Good luck.

I checked the walgreens site and it does not say anything about $20 for the 1gb card. its priced at $59. I guess its only in the Chicago area. I am in delaware. Thanks for the info though.

I saw the price in a flyer that came with the Sunday paper. Sometimes the prices in their retail stores are different than what you may find on the web site. If you have a Walgreen's close to you, you can check at the store. Most of the time they will have a copy of their latest advertising flyer there, so you couldcheck and see if that particular SD card is on sale there. Good luck.
