from what I understood:
- The Ondio does take external MMC-cards
- There is a SWITCH inside the Ondio to determine if there is an
external card inserted.
- the original archos software works on the external card if present.
To work on the internal card, you have to take apart the external
part. This is one of the most silliest parts, where the
rockbox-Ondio-Guys try to get some improvement with rockbox4Ondio.
- The format is MMC, although I havn't yet fully understood the
difference between MCC and SD.
