Question about Pentax Optio S5i Digital Camera
Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

No the Pentax Optio S5i does not support an 8gb memory card.
8gb would be an SDHD card, the S5i came out before SDHD so it does not support them.
Standard Secure Digital Cards come up to 4GB in size so you could use one of these. The highest standard card I have is 2gb and that is fine in mine.
My S5i locks up if you put an SDHD card in.
The only firmware update that Pentax supply does not effect this, SDHD needs different hardware.
