The answer depends on your personal needs and your budget. Memory cards are available in many sizes 8MB, 16MB, 32MB, 64MB, 128MB, 256MB and 512MB. The larger the card size, the more storage space and the greater the cost. One recommendation is to select a card that allows you to take images without having to worry about changing cards or downloading images very often (one of the advantages of digital photography). Among the most popular are those in 64MB, 128MB or 256MB sizes. You may want to purchase a second card to use as a back-up or replacement card that can be used if you run out of space on the first card or to use when the first card is unavailable (you may be downloading or printing images from the first card.)

W what size SD memory card can i use?can i use

You may use any SD card up to 2GB in size. Make sure you don't try larger SDHC cards, as they won't work.

Wont save anymore photos. I have a 2gb card and have 361 photo's left. Is the camera memory full? Do I have to reconfig camera memory not card memory?

Possible memory card is too big for camera. Reduce size of memory cards you use - and carry more of them.

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.

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

Memory Card error message

The K100D works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot is is electronically incompatible.

Memory card size

The S5z is limited to SD cards, 2GB and smaller. The speed doesn't matter, but larger cards will not work in this camera.
