7D and CF2 Card Problem

This is a repeat question. My last post listed incorrectly as an answer. I have no answers.

Question:
I put a 8Gb CF2 card in my 7D and it wanted to format it. Even though I already formated it to fat32 on my computer. The 7D gave up and said it couldn't format it? I pulled the card and scanned it for errors on my computer. Everything is correct. Why cant 7D read it? (Seagate 8GB ST1.2)

    I did format it with my computer and it worked but only on the computer. I could add and remove pictures on the card. When in the camera it could not read or attempt to. I have talked to a camera shop tech and he said the problem is voltage. A segate ST1.2 8Gb requires more power to read than the camera can handle. The camera can handle any size CF1 cards fine. CF2 cards up to 4Gb is about the max. Anything over than and you are taxing the system. His advice was to stick with CF1 cards. CF2 are lower priced too. Bummer! The next generation 7D is said to handle it. $1,400 Sony A700 is a little pricey to test it out.

I know it says to format the card in-camera but have you simply tried to use the card with the computer format? I have several 4 Gb cards for my camera (7D) and I have occasionally used the computer format without noticing any problems. Maybe you'll get lucky too.

Why cant i put a 8gb sd card in it? it wont take anything other than the 1gb sd card it came with


Most likely you can put in a 2 GB standard SD card. The 8GB is an SDHC which is a new format. Devices older than a few years usually cannot read the new format. However, it is possible that even a 2GB card wouldn't be support, though unlikely. You might want to try http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820134127&cm_re=2GB_SD-_-20-134-127-_-Product ... for $10 it is worth a shot, and it is likely to work.

I hope this is helpful, and if so please rate my answer as such if you would please. If you have additional questions feel free to post them here and I will do my best to answer them as quickly as possible. Thank you.

When I put in my SD 8 GB memory card, busy signal


An 8GB SD card will actually be a SDHC card, the HC means High Capacity. Your camera is only designed for regular SD cards up to a maximum capacity of 2GB; it's incompatible with SDHC at the basic hardware level and so cannot format the card.

You only have one solution: fit an SD card which does not exceed 2GB. Note that the specification for regular SD cards goes up to 4GB, but very few standard SD devices were ever designed or tested for compatibility with them. The few regular SD cameras which can use them mostly can only do so after a firmware update and even then will operate very slowly compared to when using a 2GB card. There has never been a firmware update to enable your camera to use 4GB SD cards.

I hope that you have found my posting to be of assistance and ask in return only that you return the favour by rating my answer.

My phone doesn't recognise my sd card


An 8GB micro SD card will actually be a micro SDHC card. Older SD devices care incompatible at the basic hardware level with the SDHC specification: they can only use standard SD variants. In theory that means a micro SD up to 4GB but in practice I've found very few pre-SDHC devices which will reliably handle more than 2GB SD cards without a firmware update.

I hope that this answers your question and ask in return only that you take a moment to rate my answer.

If it hasn't, then please add a comment with the exact make and model of the older phone and also of the 8GB micro-SD card and I'll investigate further before posting a reply for you.

Card error


Your camera was designed (2004) and manufactured (mostly 2005) before current generation SDHC cards became available. It will therefore be incompatible at the basic hardware level. There were some non-standard SDHC cards around in 2006 but your camera was never designed for those either.

Stick to regular SD cards, in theory your camera can handle 4GB maximum but the design team wouldn't have been able to certify compliance with that size of card as they also weren't available at the time. To be safe, stick regular SD cards with a 2GB maximum capacity.

Sorry there's no way for you to use your SDHC with your present camera but at least I hop that I've prevented you from wasting time and money on buying another incorrect memory card.

I have Nikon coolpix P50 does it support 8GB for SD card?


The manual only specifies cards up to 4GB in size. I suspect that Nikon, conservative as they are, only listed cards that existed at the time. If you can get access to an 8GB card, go ahead and try it.

You can download a PDF manual from http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/13948 and/or order a printed one from http://www.nikonmall.com/category/instructionmanuals

No maximum is specified, the camera supports FAT32 and the CFII standard, which specifies a maximum capacity of 137GB.  Shooting RAW+JPEG on an 8GB card will get you about 655 images per card.

Don't insert or remove the card when the red activity light is on. to be really safe, turn the cam off when swapping cards. If you mean, physical damage, label front, holes in, lip to the rear, be gentle.

cheers
