SRAM cards are the type recommended by HP for use in the OmniGo 100.

If you don't have, and can't get, the ORIGINAL sales receipt, you're most
likely out of luck.... I was told by an HP rep that the fulfillment
company is very firm on this.

True, but being the stubborn tightwad that I am, I'm not willing to
admit defeat yet ;-) I keep hoping that I'll find some way to get
PQ data into a format that Desktop Quicken v6 will understand,
perhaps by resurrecting an old version of Desktop Quicken to act as
an intermediary. A couple more months of idle tinkering isn't going
to hurt me, considering how horribly behind I am in entering data
into my Desktop Quicken....
