Story goes like this... I've been reading all the pages I could find (like https://www.oesf.org/index.php?title=C860_Customizations) on creating a nand backup of a C860 and everything points to requiring a CF card. So, trying to get the most for my $$ I pick up a 512MB Kingston Elite Pro, and it appears that it was a bad choice as the backup process just stops with a 'Can not initialize CF', darn.

Well, on a guess I took out the CF, but put in my 1GB Kingston Elite SD card and tried the nand backup again, and it went to the SD card just fine. Is this supposed to work? I don't want to brick the unit trying a restore from the SD so I thought asking might be a good idea...

Hi oldhat,

compressed story:
The SL-C series are able to perform NAND backup or
restore operations with CF or SD cards.

The service menu is _very_ fussy with the cards and
normally CF cards are easier in handling compared to
the SD type. But if it's better for you to use the SD
card, you're free to do this.
