your camera does not support the SDHC cards.

Sandisk extreme iii 4gb problems??


May be a problem or trash in the reader slot.

Try the card in another device connected by usb, ie, put it in a camera then connect it to the computer.

I have a Pentax Optio A20. I currently user an Sandisc Ultra II 1.0 GB card. I can't find those cards anymore. I'm not sure if the camera will support a SanDisk 4GB UltraII SDHC Card or a SanDisk 2GB...


It will take a 2 GB card, I am using one now.
I can't tell you about a 4GB card, but that's a LOT of storage, so you probably don't really need a 4GB card anyhow???

What Memory Cards will work?


Hi,,

Unfortunately, the Pentax K100D is not SDHC compatible, which means that the camera can be equipped with a maximum memory capacity of 2GB.

It is also advisable to choose a fast version of the Secure Digital memory card, such as Ultra II or Extreme III by SanDisk. I would recommend using a memory card of at least 512MB, or even 1GB if you can.

Hope this info helps

Sandisk extreme III says CF full when the card is empty


If you've tried the usual fixes like reformatting the card and trying it out in other cameras, then there is nothing more you can do to fix this.

Fortunately, Sandisk are very good at replacing faulty memory cards provided they've not suffered physical damage. Just contact the company to find out how to exchange your CF card.

I have Sandisk Extreme III 4GB memory card why after i shooting photo the file is cannot read?


Make sure your camera is compatible with a 4GB flash card. Some only take 1 or 2 GB cards. If that isn't the issue, format your card inside the camera with the camera's format utility.

Memory card locked


On your SD card, there is a small tab near the top (similar to floppy a disks), just switch that the other way it should fix that lock error.

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.

SD card for *ist DL


Interesting... I've heard that (for the DS at least) the camera isn't capable of using more than about 60X, but of course your downloads can be faster if you use a reader. At 2gb, this might give you some benefit, but a full transfer of 1gb on a garden variety sandisk only takes a few minutes.
