These types of memory card are not like the 1's you have on the PC, they
dont need power to retain data. They only use power when data is read to
saved to the card. This is a quote from the official site.
"The SanDisk MultiMediaCard and Reduced-Size MultiMediaCard (RS-MMC) are
small, removable flash storage devices, designed specifically for storage
put a premium on small form factor, low power and low cost. Flash is the
medium for portable, battery-powered devices. It features low power
consumption and is
non-volatile, requiring no power to maintain the stored data. It also has
a wide operating
range for temperature, shock and vibration."
