Here are the Wikipedia links for the XD and SD memory cards:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XD-Picture_Card

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sd_memory_card

The XD card is proprietary, but licensed to Fujifilm, Olympus and Toshiba, and just used in digital cameras. The SD card is used by a variety of devices, including digital cameras by many manufacturers.

My experience is that the XD card is more expensive than the same sized SD card. Perhaps that is not only because it is proprietary, but also because it is not used in such a variety of devices, and hence the volume is not nearly as large. I have a Fujifilm camera that uses the XD card.

There is a lot to know about digital camera memory chips, including compatibility issues with larger capacity chips, speed issues, and other details. That is why I provided the Wikipedia links.
