The 64 MB card that came with my 6265 is filling up (surprise surprise), so I'm looking at getting a bigger shinier one so that i can use the mp3 player aspect of it more.

But, I've also noticed that as the card filled up it seems to be slower to access it - scrolling through photos etc. 

If I get a big card and fill it up, will it then be impossibly slow to use?  Will a faster card help with this aspect, or is the bottleneck in the software of the phone?  If I spend the time to squirrel things away into folders will that speed it up?   I want to be able to browse quickly through photos.  Am I dreaming?

Folders on the memory card does make things quicker to navigate.

The 6265 is quite to get around in the first place. About the only downside to the phone (if you dont count message overwriting not working)

Cheers Brad,

you seem to know what you're talking about.  Do you know if I will see a difference in access time between different speed miniSD cards in this phone?

BTW, what did you mean about message overwriting not working?  I can switch it on or off, and both do what I'd expect.  The only thing I find a bit annoying is with a big memory card there, you're still limited to like 90 messages in your inbox or something.

Im not sure about speed, i still have the 64mb card in mine.

When i have message overwriting turned on, it doesnt work. New messages dont delete the old ones, so if im not careful in deleting old messages i wont have room for new ones and when you run out of room, the new message will only come through 1/10 times after space has been created. You romm for 100 messages including templates etc which can be deleted

Interesting, cheers.  Can you tell me what sort of card it was?  Any specs (speed specifically), or brand and model, so I can look it up?
Seems no point putting a bigger card in if it's going to be any slower than currently. Might have to stick to ipod and digital camera as well as phone, rather than being able to roll them all into one yet.

Hey mate i've had a 6265 with a 1gig miniSD since feb and thats one of my gripes.

My SD card is a Sandisk, works really well apart from the speeds. I thought it was slow to browse through pics because at full res they're like 500kb a piece, though that might not be the reason.

Seems really good for listening to music on etc, im happy enough with it. But the phone does slow down really badly for some reason, im not sure why. I thought it was because of the mp3 player not flushing itself from memory completely or something, but im not sure whats up now.

A restart once every day or two fixes the speed, like cycling through menus instead of hitting up 3 times and it going up through each respective option it'll just skip straight to the top one because of the lag.

Txting is also laggy when this happens, i'd be curious to know if it is my 1gig card - might try my 64mb in it again and see. The pictures it takes are pretty sweet if the lights decent, there is a fair bit of colouring and if the light isn't really good then noise comes through on the pics.

If anyone wants I can put up a couple pics I took using it the other day. 1280 res.

Oooh another issue is the 'operation failed' glitch, pisses me right off. Also recording sometimes it starts and then the picture stops and the audio continues before it pulls an 'operation failed' instead of just failing to enter recording mode. A restart fixes this also, although I dont make a habit of recording vid clips.
