I was able to get a regular 1GB SanDisk SD card to work in my
laptop...However for some reason my HP laptop requires it to be re-inserted
each time I power off/back on...
Today I was able to get the SanDisk Cruzer Micro 4GB (USB flash drive) to
work...For me this is a better solution over SD, but I would have preferred
to have used an SD card...
BTW, your SD card reader may be more important than the actual card used...I
was not able to get the exact same 1GB SD card to work on my SONY VIAO
desktop...Vista said it was not fast enough...
A lot less
expensive than say CC or BB
