Hi, I can answer your last question Mark, (at least according to the
guy in Dixons, he told me that MMC and SD cards are interchangeable,
but that MMC cards didn't have a lock, which presumably holds them in
place or something. If the Ondeo is able to accept an expansion
memory card of any sort, (MMC or whatever) then you could certainly
interchange them. Therefore you could indeed have one for audio
books, one for rock, or whatever you wanted. Again if there's an
expansion ability, then yes, it would appear as 2 separate drives, if
the 3 or 4 flash based MP3 players that I've ever owned are anything
to go by.
the really crucial questions are these however. 1. Does the ondeo
definitely have the capability to accept expansion cards, (MMC or
whatever), I'm not at all sure that it does, I've only read write ups
on ebay, but there wasn't any indication on those that it did, and 2,
(for my point of view at least), I need to know when the rockbox for
ondeo will talk. I'm totally
blind. Mark, if you have some detailed info that you could email me,
then it would be really helpful. My email, in case your email
programme doesn't let you read it, is Rinty_at_freeuk.com.
Hope that helps,

Subject: Ondio question
A little OT, as not directly related to Rockbox, but as there should
be a working version for the platform I am interested in getting one
Is my understanding of how the MMC interface works correct?
Take as an example : 128MB onboard, and a 512 MB MMC card.
Does this appear as a single 640MB space, or do you have to "Change
to access each memory store?
Can you carry multiple MMC cards around and swap as required (ie a
card, AUDIOBOOK card etc)
Is the card format MMC or SD? I get confused between the difference
