Unfortunately (and please, somebody, correct me if I'm wrong) but I
think that your initial backup onto the card has to be a full backup.
You can skip packages, I believe, but I don't think you can skip any
data. (unfortunately, I cannot confirm this because all my cards
already have backups on them, and I'm not willing to erase them to
test to see if my theory is correct) If that's true, it may be
possible that a 1 mb card won't suit you. I don't know how much
internal memory the eMate has, but you probably want a card at least
with enough to hold whatever is on your internal. So, you will want to
check that before you try a 1mb card. I have 4 meg cards I use just
for backups for my 2100, and they are full...
