    i have a cam with MMC, and a PDA with SD. i prefer the SD for portability. its slightly more expensive i believe also.

    For digi cams, I like the compact flash (cannon uses them) They are nice because they hold alot, and even better, they are not as breakable as the Smart Media cards. I acidently broke 2 128meg Smart media cards. There is a point when small is two small and the smart media breaks that line.

    actually, not really too small, just too flimsy and thin. Getting any smaller, and you would loose it quick

    There are 4GB cards (I believe in CF format).. forget size or flimsiness, you'd never have to remove the thing. :)
