CompactFlash Type I/II

Hi there,

Most digital cameras seem to only take Type I cards. What is the difference between these and Type II? Are the newer cards backwards-compatible with Type I?

Sorry, lots of questions!

Thanks loads,

I seem to remember that type II cards are slightly bigger than type I. A camera that uses type II cards can also use type I but not the other way round.
HTH, Tony
P.S. Check for good card prices. I bought a 128Mb CF card and it holds slightly more photo's than my more expensive Sandisk one. It's also a bit quicker.
