Question about Pentax Cameras
SD cards different in size use different technology. there are design changes introduced at 2GB and 4GB that makes cameras not compatible with all cards.
When this camera was introduced, it was compatible with cards up to 2GB (fromPENTAX). Using super SanDisk cards it can even manage a 4GB card, but there is absolutely no way that you can have this camera working with a 8GB or 16GB memory card.
You can use an SD card up to 2GB or an SDHC card up to 4GB if you apply firmware update 102 (here download from Pentax Japan:Software Downloads here global:PENTAX). (Please notice that if irmware update is done incorrectly it may damage the camera, do it at own risk-later model of this camera were sold with new firmware)
Here compatible cards:
PENTAX K100D Super Sandisk 2GB SD Memory Card
firmware 102 installed:NEW - 4GB MEMORY CARD SD
