    I always thought flash memory was a form of EEPROM and so retained data when power was turned off and therefore required no kind of backup.

    I was wrong and it won't erase it when the power is off but flash is a completly different thing than EEPROM.

    Yeah, I know I should talk to this loser, but I really dont care.

    Okay, you say we have no lives, yet you come back here just to rant on some more? I belive that you have no life. Why dont you just leave and live your life that you apparently live to the max. And what do you mean by "our generation" what, are you some crazy 50 year-old nut-job who goes onto everyone's forums and just rant on about your life and how we dont have one?

    Freak.

    Wrong. Flash memory is completey non-volatile. This means that it still holds the data when there is no power. What you are describing is RAM. I wish I knew (or could find) the half-life of Flash Memory storage, but I can't seem to find it. If I remember right (don't hold me to this), I think it's somewhere in the region of 150+ years. That's unplugged time.

    Also, a good link on media cards:

    ... but what do I know?...
