My 33LF won't work with even a 1gb Memory Card. It freezez up as you describe.So far it seems happy enough with 512mb cards. A camera shop operator told me that the capacity of the card exceeds the capacity of the camera and it seems he was right.
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.
Optio 33LF Firmware Upgrade Information & Instructions:
This firmware corrects "camera freezing & cannot display images" issues with Sandisk & Black's 128MB & 256MB Secure Digital Cards. This problem is occurred because Sandisk changed the manufacturing location from the Philippine's to China during production of the Optio 33LF. They also change the electronic chip used the SD Card which caused a compatibility problems with Pentax, Minolta, Palm and other digital device manufacturers. In turn this also caused a problem with Black's SD Cards as they are manufactured by Sandisk. Therefore, we had to release a Firmware Upgrade for the Optio 33LF to correct compatibility issues with these SD Cards.
HOW TO CHECK WHAT THE CURRENT FIRMWARE VERSION:
