Lexar, Scandisk, Sony Memory Stick Compatibility with SONY CLIE PEG-NX70V

Hi everyone,
I just bought a Sony CLIE PEG-NX70V palmtop. Now I want to buy a
memory stick for it. After looking at the prices for SONY memory
sticks I am definitly attracted to buy some other brand such as Lexar
or scandisk but I am worried if that will be compatible with it or
not. I have also called the technical suuport and they told me that
there might be a problem with the stick of it is not compatible with
Palm 5 OS that I have on it but he also said that usually they work
fine. But I want to confirm because he never seeme really sure.

So is Lexar or Scandisk memory sticks compatible with sony CLIE
PEG-NX70V (with palm 5 OS).

Moroeover if I have to buy a wireless network card then do I have to
necessarily go for a SONY card ??? Resaon : Again, because it is too
expensive, $150. So do I have any alternative regarding this too. The
sony tech told me that with other cards I might have some problems
regarding the physical size of the card, it terms of the other card
not able to fit in the slot.

Can anyone advise ???

thanks

Rupendra

For what it's worth, I bought a Lexar Memory Stick for my Clie PEG-SL10
(running Palm 4.1) and it works just fine. I can't imagine there would be
any difference between different brands of MS. Don't have any experience
with wireless network cards and PDAs.

It's "SanDisk" (no "c"). "Scandisk" is the program you run to fix
your filesystem if you use Windows. The SanDisk web site says that
their "Memory Stick PRO" product is compatible with the
"CLIE Handheld PEG-NX70V", so you should be OK if you get one of
those. They have another older type called just a "Memory Stick",
and it doesn't have much compatibility information, so it may or
may not be OK. (However, I bet it is OK.)

Here is the link to their compatibility page:

You'll have a hard time buying a "Scandisk" card.
