An 8GB card is an SDHC type card. Check your manual....you might only be able to use SD cards.

Hi - I have a Pentax S6 with a 1 GM SIM card. I just bought a 4 GB SIM card and am getting a memory card error message. The camera doesn't work with the 4 GB SIM card. What's wrong? What should...


The S6 works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card and will not work with your camera. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I just bought a new verbatium 8 gb SDHC memory card for my Pentax S6 camera and it does not work powers on but can not get menu funtions to work. my old card is a SD 1GB works fine are the new SDHC cards...


No. The S6 works with SD cards, not with SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work with devices not designed to use them. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Can a pentax optio S5i support a 8GB memory card? Do I need to download a driver to support an 8GB memory 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.
