Hi Tony,

Thanks for the reply.
The SD Card w/ PCMCIA adapter is a great idea. I didn't know Paul's driver enabled such high capacity.
Considering I already own a bunch of SD, it's probably my best bet.

This would still require you to use Paul's driver but this is free. You could also do a search for linear flash memory on eBay. A lot of those cards will work in a Newton but the downside is that many come out of routers so they will have had quite a lot use. This is a problem because flash memory cards have a limited life. You can find out more from here: http://myapplenewton.blogspot.com/2009/04/newton-memory-101.html Frank Gruendel (Germany, newtontalk at pda-soft dot de) and/or Russ Bravo (UK, russbravo at lineone dot net) might have a few linear flash cards might still have some 20MB cards available.
