    What are some good online retailers to buy electronics that will be shipped to a Danish address?

    I am looking to either get a large SD memory card or an iPod camera adapter so I don't have to take my laptop with me on a long trip around Europe. Currently I am in Denmark so I can't order from my usual sources (newegg, Amazon, ect).

    One problem I have sometimes is that I have a US credit card and some places only take Danish cards.

    Thanks

    I have ordered things from amazon.co.uk and had it shipped to Norway, but that was just some DVD set.

    Or you could try Proshop, at least they got good reviews over at kelkoo.dk

    Being danish I might be able to help you.

    This site compares online computer hardware prices.
    Main site: http://edbpriser.dk
    SD cards: http://www.edbpriser.dk/Listproduct...2297=&Trueval2297=30932&Submit.x=6&Submit.y=6 Press "Vis" to see details.

    Don't know the iPod camera adaptor you mentioned. But post a link and I'll find a shop for you.

    You usually need a VISA or the danish Dankort to order. But most also give you the possebility to pay in cash on delivery. Will cost you extra though.

    Need any help, choice of store or translation maybe, then just ask away.

    Thanks for the links guys. I'll try looking through them. I know some very *basic* Danish so hopefully I can figure it out on my own.

    The camera adapters I am talking about are any of the three found here. They seem to be discontinued so I might be out of luck for them.

    EDIT: I have a 3G iPod so the Apple brand one won't work.

    I got my iPod mini from CompUSA. They ship to Europe.

    I think Amazon ships everything but electronics and computer worldwide... :(

    That is the one, but ouch, look at those prices. I may have to stick with memory cards. Thanks for all the links and advice everyone.

    I live in Copenhagen. Everything apple + mac related I buy in town. There are two apple shops, one on Gammel Mont and one on Åboulevarden. They might be able to help you. But otherwise I order everything online from the UK. Crucial delivers from the UK to Denmark. I recently ordered and the delivery took three days. I was very happy with their service.

    I am in Aalborg so there aren't any Apple stores around here that I know of. Also I find that in store prices are 2-3x what I can get online. I'll also look into ordering from a UK shop.

    One question about that though, won't I have to pay import tax if I order from the UK? Or is that only from the US. I had my mom ship me a package once and they made me pay a customs fee.

    Nope, no tax when ordering from the UK or Germany or any other country in the EU.
