SanDisk Sansa Fuze MP3 player: Packing a long list of features into a tiny package, the multi-faced Sansa® Fuze™ plays music, audio books and video clips; displays photos; has a built-in FM radio; and offers a voice recorder to capture thoughts on the fly. The bright 1.9" color screen makes it easy to navigate, or watch videos in landscape mode. There's also a microSD™ card slot for quickly expanding capacity.

SanDisk Cruzer Titanium Plus USB flash drive: SanDisk brings something new to USB flash drives - secure automatic online backup.2 Any file copied to the Cruzer® Titanium Plus is automatically backed up to a password-protected online account. If the drive is lost or stolen, or you simply forget to bring it with you, retrieving that important file requires nothing more than signing into your backup account from any computer connected to the Internet.3 Available now at 4GB capacity for a list price of $49.99 ( www.sandisk.com/CruzerTitaniumPlus).
SanDisk Video HD cards: Take the mystery out of selecting the right card for the new generation of standard and high-definition camcorders that use flash memory instead of tape or disks with SanDisk Video HD™ cards, which conveniently displays the minutes of video recording time on its label, as well as offering fast transfer of recordings to computers for editing. The cards are available now in 60-minute4 (4GB) and 120-minute4 (8GB) times - on the HD Standard setting - in both the SDHC™ and Memory Stick PRO Duo™ formats. Suggested retail prices are $79.99 and $139.99, respectively, for the 4GB and 8GB SDHC cards, and $79.99 and $149.99, respectively, for the 4GB and 8GB Memory Stick PRO Duo cards ( www.sandisk.com/VideoHD).
