    You have a dirty mind my friend. Though if you use IE it does compress the images...

    You can add me, but I bought some generic crap off ebay, so it's almost expected that mine doesn't work.

    I'm seriously thinking about buying a Kingston 2GB miniSD from Fry's (it's decently priced) or through Buy.Com using the Google checkout. I hope I don't run into potential issues...

    I have heard both success stories and disaster stories with the Kingston 2GB card regarding this matter. I know my 1GB Kingston doesn't work. Good luck!

    This kingston 2gb is also 22.99 (I paid 32.99 for it two weeks ago) and I haven't experienced any issues with it.

    So right now, for those like me attempting to purchase a miniSD card that will work with teh 750, is Kingston 2gb from newegg the only card that works? Do we have any other reports of cards that are working across a wider range of individuals than just 2-3 people, or is Kingston our best bet?

    You are not following these threads.

    No, Kingston is not our best bet. In fact, I started this thread by talking about how my 1GB Kingston didn't work. I also saw a report of someone with a 2GB Kingston card that doesn't work. Many SanDisks, however, do work. And many generic cards don't. Some people who bought Palm-branded cards were lucky. Others weren't.

    It's a hit or miss situation, really.

    Yea I would recommend getting whatever and seeing if it works. If not, RMA it and get a different one.

    Indeed. As a matter of fact, your best bet in this case would be to purchase it at a local store and make sure they have a return policy on open items, even if you pay more than you would through NewEgg or MWave or any other e-store.

    My Sandisk 2GB MiniSd card fails in this way as well. My 512MB Sandisk works without issues. I think im going to sit on this 2GB card until a fix comes out or try and return it for bubble gum.
