I was half right.

Both versions allow you to restore from the card without having to reload the software into the palm.

Palm has promised to give you a chance to expand but don't be mislead by the number of MB available.

Style Name: Expansion Card Verified Purchase
In order to avoid problems and issues with purchasing this card, you should know what it is capable of! This hardware was released before the software vendors were able to update their software to run on it ( if they even intended to ) MOST database programs will not run on this card, most large programs will not run on this card. In fact, it is a RARE program that actually will run on the card! To be specific:
NO palm brand or palm supplied software ( address book, to-do's...) will run on this card NONE of the software supplied on the supplemental software CD that Palm gives you when you purchase the device will work on the card.
Palm offers NO help, info or advice about the card. Palm tech support people not only lack information about what can and cannot run on this card, but their response to every question is ....that is 3rd party software, ask the vendor. Most vendors I contacted told me to contact palm! A few vendors told me they were upgrading their software so that " it should work on the card sometime in the future."
Palm could not supply with the name of ONE SINGLE piece of software that runs on the card!!! I asked what software they may have used for beta testing and they claimed not to know that information.

Style Name: Memory Card
Having lived through a Palm IIIx glitch that erased all my address listings, when I bought my Palm M505 I vowed to make the Memory Backup Card one of my next purchases.
It is tiny enough to store virtually anywhere (although not in a wallet or place where it will be manhandled). It backs up my Palm, including 3rd party software, in just over 3 minutes. Operation could not be simpler. Pop the card into the SD slot, press backup and off you go.
The card has a small lock switch, which keeps you from accidently erasing the data. One thing that Palm should include is a small case for the card. I use the case for my Sandisk 32 mb card to protect the Memory Backup Card, but this should really be included, especially since the card has exposed contacts that should be kept clean.
All in all, an elegant solution to system backup and worth the price for peace of mind.

Style Name: Memory Card
I bought two of these cards.
Just like it is supposed to, this card only backs up your PDA's built-in memory, not your expansion card memories. The most important thing in my PDA is my built-in memory. It contains my contacts, my calendar and my encrypted PINs- I use an encryption program. I cannot afford to have these lost which is why I use a PDA in the first place. If my PDA is lost or destroyed I can buy a new PDA, but if I just entered several new contacts, appointments, or encrypted PINs since I last performed a HotSync, I have to reacquire that data. I carry one backup card on me at all times in a pill box- along with my other expansion cards- and swap it every week with a backup card I keep at home or in my hotel room. This way I have a week old back up if I need to check something I accidentally deleted without selecting "Save archive copy on PC". If my wife or I enter an important new contact, appointment, or encrypted PIN, I immediately use my back-up card to back up the data, instead of waiting until the next time I am at my computer to HotSync. Most people recommend buying a 16MB expansion card and using a backup program to backup your PDA. I disagree. Since the backup software is hardwired into the card and very simple to use, I do not have to worry about accidentally ruining the backup.
This card is not for everyone. But if you have important data, the ability to buy a replacement PDA, slip the back-up card in, and instantly have your PDA back, makes this a life saver on the road.

Style Name: Expansion Card
I just bought the Palm m505 and this memory card. I assumed that it would triple my memory without a problem. I was half right. It tripled my memory, but only for applications that do not access other files. In other words, your Palm (and I assume any other device using this card) will not be able to access document files put on the card. Nor will readers on the card be able to access the normal memory. I use about 85% of the normal 8 megas on the palm and most of that is for documents and books. This card is useless for that. Right now I have installed everything that I can get to run on the card and its less then 1 MB. I have memory, but nothing that goes on it is very big and the big files wont work on it.
I gave it 2 stars because it did do what it said. If I find a way around this dilemna I will love what it can do. Bottom line, it promises more then it delivers.
