Compact Flash Card Wanted

I have "acquired" an old camera...... Nikon Coolpix 950  circa 1999, that still works, however it needs a Compact Flash Memory card. as there is no internal memory....
Now I know you guys... "I won`t throw that away, I may need it one day".... might just have one floating around in the back of your desk drawer.
Not really worried about the size of the memory , as the camera will only be used as a standby, and probably spend most of it`s life under my seat in the car!....
so... any offers?

(and please don`t give me grief about surfing the net for one).... I know they are available, I just want something "extremely cheap"  (cos I`m a Yokshuman! ! ).
cheers guys... !  Wink

Re: Compact Flash Card Wanted

Hold it there guys!! located the said Compact Flash card from under a pile of papers on my desk and; its "only" 8Mb compared to geoffp0's a bit of a tiddler. And, I slipped it into my PC to see if there was anything on it I might want to keep and my PC wouldn't read it. So it looks as if you need to talk to geoff again shutter.
Sorry mate Embarrassed Embarrassed
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

PS. I think Multi-Media and Compact Flash cards are quite different.
