    HD is High Definition which may not be compatible with some older models, so check that your device is compatible before buying HD. HTH

    I think the HC refers to high capacity. Cards over 2gb tend to be sdhc although I have heard of but not seen 4gb sd cards. If your manual mentions sdhc as compatible I'd go for that as they are only around £6.50 delivered from Amazon and a 4gb card will hold loads of photo's. If not just buy a 2gb sd which will still hold a lot of photos and probably cost about £4.

    The hc stands for high capacity. looks exact same as sd but won't work unless device is compatible with sdhc.
    Confused now though because xd is a different size, unless there is a adaptor?
