    I've been scouring t'internet for cheap SD cards to get some MP3 tuneage on my new RNS-E and have found that standard SD (rather than SDHC) are hard to find! However i've found two suppliers with special offers on 2GB cards right now:

    Transcend 2GB @£9.99 - Maplin online store - free delivery over £35
    http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNo=345504

    Kingston 2GB @ £9.99 - Clas Ohlson stores in Kingston, Manchester, Croydon, Watford & Reading.
    http://www.clasohlson.co.uk/Product/Product.aspx?id=98197921

    A word of warning, don't buy the 4GB ones off Tradeport through Amazon as they never arrive and you have to claim your money back through Amazon!

    The only place I would never buy flash memory from is ebay. There are people who are still allowed to sell fake SD/SDHC cards, USB flash drives etc despite complaints and growing awareness. The fakes are not as advertised and they will corrupt data.

    make sure that the cards you buy are not SDHC one's as RNS-E's (pre 2010) models have trouble supporting this format

    That can only be the post then Nilzy, the longest anything has ever taken from them for me has been 3 days! Best was I ordered at 15:30 and it dropped throught the door 15 hours later!!

    I stick to 2 gig, some 4 gigs work apparently but not worth the hassle, i got a 4 pack of 2 gig's from mymemory for 12 quid delivered!!!

    RNS-E will hand SD cards only, not SDHC, so 4Gb IF yo ubuy the SD version.... normally 2Gb is the max.... and you'll hit a limit where the file system can only read the first 400 (I think!) "items"... so if you put more files / folders on than that, they won't be read....
