Inexpensive but reliable microSD cards for keyfile?

    Does anyone know where to buy micro SD cards? They don't need to be big - the lowest capacity would be fine, but I've no idea where to buy new <=512mb micro SD cards for significantly less than the 1gb ones. Especially from a respected manufacturer.

    It seems sensible to use a card with the key file on only for unlocking the database - limit its exposure. If that's so, it's a waste to use a card with a large capacity.

    1GB seems to be the lowest capacity these days. I used to collect the ones from upgrades and use those as they never seemed to have problems - your more likely to muck it up by removing it from your computer before writing has finished.

    cheers, Paul

    Thanks, Paul.
    Asking everyone in my area on facebook whether they had old microSD cards would require explanation and needlessly advertise my system... Meh, I've already done that here.
    Guess I'll just fork out for them.
    Still have to iron out some stuff with my phone and cards, though. It's been behaving oddly.
