whats a good memory card?
 
how many GB's do i need...to put in a whole movie?

Movies usally range anywhere from 500MB to a few gigs depending on the quality and size. I am totally new to BB's so I'm not sure if people scale them down.

I went with a Kingston 4GB card, but people have up to 8GB. Many also like the brand SanDisk.

I have a 4Gb card from scan disk, it one of the new SCHC cards and works fine.(y)

^^^ Sandisk SDHC? ... like this? SanDisk 4GB micro SDHC Memory Card - 4GB microSDHC, SanDisk SDHC, 4GB Micro SD High Capacity, SanDisk Model SDSDQ-4096

I've not tried the SDHC yet and was wondering how they were performance wise ... Do you have any other cares to compare speed against?

apart from more space i did not see a difference getween my supplied 1 gig card and the new one.

yeah im using a sandisk micro SD 1GB card, and im only putting ringtones, pics, and music on there... works perfectly fine for me.

There are 1GB Kingston's floating around for $8 shipped.

I went with a 4GB since I love to bring lots of music along with me.

Anyone know if this will be ok?

SanDisk microSDHC 6GB with Adapter and SD/SDHC Reader - TransFlash (SDSDQ-6144)

I just picked up this card from CanadaComputers this evening. Act fast since the special is only on for a couple more days. Whether it works or not depends on the phone you have and its OS version but it should work on the Pearl running BB OS v4.3.0 (like mine)
