I currently us a 1GIG Microdrive and am looking at getting a back-up card/drive. I am wondering what others have gotten. I shoot the CP5000 if you didn't already know.

I am considering a 256 because, it is a back-up, and I want to save my coins for a DSLR in the future.

Hi Todd,

I use the MD also. It has some pretty funny "product limitations" to it. For example, you're not supposed to use it above 11,000 ft altitude and not above 1 atmosphere.

With that said, I have never had any problems with it. Knock on wood.

For backup, I have two Viking 256 meg cards. Amazon has a deal on them from time to time and they are super fast and cheap. Like less than 80 bux each.

Cheers

Amazon also has an occassional deal on the Viking 512 MB cards, after rebate around $150. I have 2 of these, which gets me about 70 shots in Raw mode on my D60.
