Thanks, Ray, for your thoughts. I'm no expert but would have thought there's really a bit more to hold with the CF; but perhaps that is counterbalanced by the fact that the SD card is less likely to suffer if not placed absolutely correctly to start with.
Anyway, I hope, Chris, that you find a solution and it all works well for you.

Carol and others, this issue of the very smallness of SD cards came up in the interview I did with the guy making the Vi-player who had sourced a plastic container attached to a lanyard to help people in situations who's handling ability was limited in holding and manipulating these postage stamp sized cards. If I can find out if these card holders can be bought separatetly on the net I'll let the list know. I'd end by saying that, if anything, where gripping and manoeuvring is not an issue, SD cards are maybe a bit easier to insert than, say, CF cards, and no danger of multiple pins within host devices getting bent. Cheers,getting bent. From Ray I can be contacted off-list at: mailto:ray-48@xxxxxxxx -----Original Message----- Carol Pearson They are pretty small and flimsey, to be honest, though very durable. I guess, if you could ensure you have a table, so you have plenty of surface space should you drop the card, you may manage and then find you don't need the table; but I wouldn't like to say for certain without having seen your difficulties first-hand. Don't you have anyone who has one to show you, or a shop nearby that might help? Failing this, I could find one to send to you as a trial if you like. -- Carol carol.pearson@xxxxxxxxxxxx ----- Original Message ----- From: "Chris Hallsworth" <christopherhallsworth71@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>Hi all, Sorry for the cross posting, but I'm thinking of buying an SD cardfor myBrailleNote mPower so that I can store Keysoft upgrades. However,besidesthe point, since I have some physical disabilities, cerebral palsyto beprecise, that causes fine motor skill issues, how difficult are theytoinsert into one of these for me? This is the main reason why I wasput offbuying these because, by the sound of it, they're so small that I amathigh risk of dropping or even losing them. Thanks in advance.
