Thank you very much for your response which was very thorough and even
answered a couple additional questions I should have asked. I've decided to follow
your implied advise and opt for the 8 gig card rather than stopping at the 4 gig
since its equally readable and, as you noted, Amazon and other places seem to
continually dropping the prices for these storage medium.

Thanks again.
