E800 - can't see many CF types including Viking 256mb(Toshiba), PNY 1gb,
Have tried formatting in a PCMCIA CF adapter but still not reading.
Will read Kingston 256mb.
Any one else struggling with CF Card compatibility?

Re: Compact Flash card compatiblity
I don’t know why you PDA can not read your card but I found some infrmations about parts which are compatible with e800. As far as I know this types are compatible with e800.
Compact Flash Memory Card 1GB (PX1076E-1NME)
Compact Flash Memory Card 512MB (PX1075E-1NME)-Type I
Compact Flash Memory Card 256MB (PX1074E-1NME)-Type I

4GB requires FAT32. Camera firmware only supports FAT16. 4GB won't work because FAT16 has a 2GB maximum size limitation. 1GB CF card is Nikon's "approved" maximum for this camera.
Catch: 22 1GB -and lesser capacity- CF cards are no longer manufacturered or generally available in 2010. When the current CF card dies, the still working camera also becomes throwaway unless you can source a CF card 1GB or under. 2GB may work, but with 'issues' per caution below.
CAUTION: Anecdotal evidence suggests the final release -& current- firmware for cameras of this generation is also encumbered by with a maximum picture number limitation of 999, realistic at the time of original manufacture when 256MB was a the largest capacity CF card but completely nonsensical now.
Summary: This is my first NIkon Digital camera and also my last.
Apart from the noteriety of the ubiquitous broken Nikon plastic battery latch, a major design flaw Nikon refuse to acknowledge or accept liability to rectify -since self-repaired better than OEM, Nikon policy on firmware support is complete abandonment of product within an unacceptably short service window. ie: a deliberate poilicy of enforced obsolescence.
Suggested Problem Remedy: Do buy a new camera supporting SD Cards of current capacities. Don't buy anything branded Nikon.
The card I have always been using is now also suddenly giving this
message. I found an old SanDisk 16MB and a 1GB SanDisk that works
perfectly in my Boss 864 and they also give the same message. Trying to
go into formatting brings the message "no card!"
You will need to buy a Compact Flash (CF) card (up to 128MB is a good size, NOT more than 256MB), a card reader to attach to the PC also a PCMCIA carrier/adapter for the CF card to be inserted into your sewing machine if the CF card will not go directly in.
A CF card is a compact flash memory card. It's rectangular and has two rows of holes along one side which fit over the connector pins when you slide the card into its socket. Compact flash cards can be bought from electronics or photographic shops, and some department stores. They are not expensive but these days they are usually 1Gb and up. The TASCAM Pocketstudio 5 can only format up to 128Mb so most of a modern card is not used but the card will still work.
Additional storage can be added to the MobilePro 900 by adding memory cards to either the CF Card slot or the PCMCIA (PC Card) slot. There are several types of memory cards available, including Flash Memory and miniature hard drives, in both the CF and PCMCIA form factor.
The microdrive is compatable with anything that supports reading compact flash memory cards, because there is a common method of communication between flash and hard drives that use pcmcia or CF slots.
The only advice that I could offer is to try those 2 Compact Flash cards on someone elses PocketPC. If they don't work then there must be something wrong with the cards.
However, if they both work then there must be a problem with the CF slot on your Jornada. Try to test out some CF cards from an electronic store if they will let you.
Yes, you do not need drivers for CF cards. A preferred CF list? Whomever told you this is blowing you off.
People use all brands of CF cards from Viking, Scandisk, Lexar, Mr. Flash, etc. Sometimes there is a bad card and other times the CF slot is bad so check both of those out...
