Hi again,

Try to force the camera to reset. This could be done by removing tthe battery grip and the batteries in the body for an hour or so.

You can try to reset camera settings to default from the menu.
And fimware update could help if the software causes the problem.

What is the largest capacity SD card that I can use with a Pentax IST ds camera?


The camera uses SD memory cards. SD cards max out at 2GB. SDHC cards run from 4GB up, but they cannot be used in SD devices. SD cards can be used in SDHC devices.

The short answer is 2GB.

According to the Pentax web site, there is no firmware update available for the 33LF camera. As far as your pics are concerned, you can use a card reader to download them to your computer. Then, you can format the card in the camera and everything should be ok.

I want to obtain a larger memory card (currently have a 1GB) but everyone we buy I have been unalbe to get them to format/ I have a pentax ist DS


You should be able to use 2GB SD cards. Cards larger than 2GB are actually SDHC cards and will not work with this camera.

Pentax IST DS & 2 GB SD cards


You need to upgrade the firmware on the camera. The latest versions will support cards bigger than 1GB; as delivered 1GB was the max.

Firmware Update


save the firmware file on your sd card, then you have to find the menu in your camera, to load it in camera memory, make sure your battery is fully charged or it will not work.

Why is my *ist DS eating my SD cards?!


I've used Sandisk Ultra II 512M cards, a PQI 1G and a Transcend 1G card (all high speed rated) in the *istDS. I've done about 1500 exposures now, many RAW, and have done several rounds of upload to my computer. No problems at all. These same cards work flawlessly in a Panasonic FZ10 as well. Either you have had a bit of bad luck, two defective SD cards in a row, or have a *istDS with a stuck or bad memory card controller. Try using the Reset command in the Set Up Menu, see if that helps. BTW, always format SD cards with the camera once before you start using them.

Problem with the * ist DS and 2 gb chip


I guess You should wait for a firmware update - and do not format the card in the camera until then. I think it won't take long.
