You'd still need to find XD cards that are within the proper Megabyte range for each sampler in order to be compatible too. Pretty sure 128mb is the max.

thanks I hadn't considered that.

that be easier to find XD at that size than smart media cards though, in fact it'd be easier to get a bigger XD card and use a card reader + my computer to partition the card and make the right space that way.

The 505 nor will any other SP accept memory cards with partitions.

Just spend the right money the first time so you know it works.

I bought an XD-SMC Adapter (SMC Interface) just like the one pictured, with two 128 Olympus XD cards.. And neither of them work with my SP-505. Just a heads up!
