    Can anyone tell me the difference between type I and II. I tried to find a good explanation on the internet but failed. Most specifically I wonder if my Canon S30 would accept Type II but even if you know it does I am curious what is the difference.

    According to this it is the thickness of the card:

    From this link:

    CF Type II device

    Type II CompactFlash is simply a thicker version of the Type I card and was designed to allow for higher memory capacity. Though some Type II cards (like almost all memory cards) have no moving parts, the most popular Type II card is the Microdrive, a miniaturized hard drive developed by IBM. Microdrives are available in capacities of up to 1 GB. Because Microdrives have moving parts, they are less rugged, more heat-sensitive, and require more power than their Type I counterparts. For these reasons, a product with a Type II slot is not necessarily Microdrive compatible; please check your owner's manual or the product manufacturer's Web site to be certain. The extra thickness means that Type II CompactFlash cards will not fit in a Type I slot. Type II cards are primarily used in high-resolution digital cameras from Canon, Nikon, and Casio. The CompactFlash Association sets the specification for CF cards

    From www.canon.com:

    "STORAGE MEDIA

    PowerShot S40/S30 uses widely available CompactFlash™ Type I or II memory cards to store images. The camera is also compatible with IBM® 340MB or 1 GB Microdrive™ cards, for times when you need even greater storage capacity. "

    Thank you so much for your answers guys. Particularly papanickel
    's answer was right on the money.

    I sent, as a private message to both Cuervo and papanickel a set (each different) of the new 16 digit codes ( I guess one time use) for $10 off $40 and $15 off $75 in-store at Staples. Hope you will find them a little usefull. Ooops just noticed they say bring email with you. Give me your email if you need them.

    Still too expensive for 512MB if you ask me.
