Thank you for the reply, I believe I need some SST 49LF040 or PM 49FL004 
flash memory, and some sockets it will plug into.  Will continue to 
search in the UK,  But, if anyone has the above, or can buy some; please 
let me know and I will buy some too.

I have got a RD1-PMC4 on the way.

I have printed most of the descriptions out, so I can be ready
