    The best you will do is a 2gb card from amazon for around 15. The only other option would be eBay.
    No camera manufacturers are currently using XD cards, so the technology is as good as dead.

    I have 4 or 5 hanging about ranging from 64-512mb which you can have FOC - as long as you wipe them and don't post whatever's on them on Facebook! PM if they're any good
