Ditto for me , peter. I bought a Nikon P&S in Glasgow for my niece, I 
don't remember now the exact model, but it was 50 pounds IIRC. It was a 
nice shop near the Clyde river. I bought a cheap card (5 pounds) but it 
didn't last more than a year. I tried in vain to recover the images, and 
my niece wated them because they went to the mountains to see the 
snow.From now on I'm always getting brand name cards even if they cost a 
couple of euros more.My Nytech takes a 2GB card only, but I found a shop 
in the 'net that still had them. It's now on its third card and on its 
third set of batteries.
