Hi, I know this is the tech support forum and this question might not even be part of the forum but I think it's simple enough for someone to answer so I guess i'll ask. : ) Here's the problem. I have an older digital camera with a 128MB CF card. I saw a great deal on a 512 MB SD card and did a search on google between the two and found some great information on the vs. between the two of them. I figured the SD card was definitely worth getting as it's generally more expensive then a CF card and I was gonna get it much cheaper then even a 512 MB CF card.

Well, the problem is I didn't the SD card is much smaller and designed completely different from a CF card...so apparently it's for digital cameras that have accept only SD OR a combo of both SD AND CF.

Mine apparently isn't one of those. Hmm, i'm wondering if there's some kind of adapter that can make a SD CARD fit into a CF slot.....by any chance is there something like that?

I'm just curious though, what the heck is an SD card used for mainly..what kind of device? My neighbor has a brand new Olympus 6MB camera and his doesn't take my SD CARD either....that stinks.....

any info on this would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

update: well just saw on Ebay they do have SD TO CF adapters...of course then I saw they have TYPE I AND II so searched google and saw TYPE I is what I Need...interesting.

I really still would like to know if most digital cameras "today" have both a CF AND A SD SLOT..or anytime you purchase an SD card you're gonna have to have an adapter?

It's down to the different manufacturers. Sony use Memroy sticks in all of their products, Kodak ten to use CF but my cousin has one tha uses MMC/SD, Canon tend to use CF etc. CF is the cheapest foramt and often the quickest too. It's now the biggest card though. Sony's duo is absolutely tiny!
