My 5600 should be here on Friday, and I am looking to buy some storage for it. I have some CF memory already, but I will also be needing wireless capability which means the CF slot will be used up and the extra storage will have to be SD.
I want at least 512Mb, mainly for storing MP3s, but the whole Zaurus/SD thing seems a bit of a minefield, so I'm hoping for some guidance. I've searched the forums to death but can't seem to find a real consensus on what works and what doesn't.
Are the Zaurus/SD problems mainly limited to the 5500, or is the 5600 equally prone?
Are there any users who have used 512Mb SD cards with no transfer/suspend problems, and sufficient memory bandwidth to play MP3s and run the odd application from SD? If so, what brands of SD are you using?
I have about £100 to spend on a 512 SD card, which puts me in the market for Sandisk Ultra2 cards, PNY, Viking and PQI. Has anyone used any of these cards without problems?
Sandisk seem to have problems relating to poor SD controllers- are these symptoms likely to carry over to the new UltraII cards? I know the Zaurus will not make use of the extra speed, but I will transfer MP3s daily to the card using a USB2 reader attached to my PC, so the extra speed would be useful, but Zaurus compatibility is most important....
Any suggestions, ideas or experiences would be most welcome,
