I prefer 1 256. They are reliable and hard to keep track of with more than one.

Hello!
I own a C-750 Olympus camera and an Olympus XD 256 MB card. I don't know what's your point to ask the difference between 2 128 or one 256. I didnt even consider the possibility to buy 2x128, because it will be harder to work with. You wil have to change it when full and when recording video you won't be able to record a 256Mb video.
Hope it helps.
Love, Andrea Oliveira

Hi! thanks a lot for your quick response!

What i had in my mind was that if something goes wrong with the 256 card then all is lost while if yoy ve got 2x128 then you still have one to work with..also about speed, do you know if there are any differences between the two capacities?

Larger cards are usually faster. But xD cards are fast enough it isnít likely to make any difference in the camera.

Quality brand cards are very reliable Ė in fact most xD cards are fast and reliable as only a few manufacturers are actually making them.

Reliability is high enough that I would rate the chances of losing the little card much higher using 2 than losing pictures with a card failure. You also have a much lower chance of bending pins by not changing cards in the field under sometimes rushed and less than ideal conditions. It isnít that easy to bend pins but people have done it.

In general, I would prefer two 128s; if one goes south, you don't lose everything that way.
