    I did post on another thread about the 32gb card...I got the card just to max out what the phone offered (just cuz I thought it would be cool), but would this be overkill?
    I want to use droid x's video capabilities to replace my old sony digital 8 tape camcorder, when can. I was wondering if the full 16gb would be sufficient. I plan on, at this point, downloading the vids on my computer to edit the vids, like after a camping trip and save them on a cd.
    Has anyone used the droid x to this extent or have you used it mostly for phone & web?

    Is there any way to edit clips created & merge on to one vid clip on droid x?

    It's only overkill if you never use more than the 16 gig that you replaced.

    In general it's my experience that if you're not using the memory now, you soon will be, particularly if you use your X to view movies and photos.

    Only if you don't use it. There's generally no such thing as too much storage.

    I always thought more than 8 was probably overkill....until I rooted. Those quarter of a gig nandroids eat space fast.

    Trust me it's not overkill. There was a time when having a 1TB hard drive was absolutely ludicrous. I'm sure the more...seasoned folks here can remember even smaller sizes once being thought of as overkill. Just give it time, if you have the space, you'll fill it eventually, then they'll have the 64GB cards or higher. :)

    You need to send me the link where u can root the DX. I've only heard of "brick" after the word "root".

    MD has the Original Droid, but it is possible and relatively safe to Root the DX

    Not from what I've read & heard. You try to root for wifi..."brick". You mess with other stuff...."brick".
