SOrry, if this is posted somewhere, but I couldn't find it. I just purchased the Canon A510 and it comes with the 16mb Multimedia card. IS this different than the standard SD card I bought? Can i Use and SD card or do I need to start looking for a multimedia one? thank you!

You can use either MMC or SD cards in your camera. They are physically the same size. The main differences are that SD cards are faster than MMC, and that most SD cards have a tab on the side that you can slide to prevent accidental erasure of data. I think that SD is replacing MMC. I have not seen very MMC cards for sale, while SD cards can be found everywhere.
