Hello:
Another question relative to the digital era. I need to get storage media. I have read the the IBM 1 gig unit is the best buy dollar-for-dollar, but that the microdrives eat up battery life. Someone suggested that I would be better off buying a couple of Ridata 512 meg units. Although a bit more expensive, it was suggested that my batteries would last longer and I would still have the same storage capacity. Any thoughts on that? Also, are there any brands of compact cards that I should avoid? Thanks. I would appreciate any information about these devices, even if I don't have sense enough to ask the appropriate questions.
