Mavica FD-88 Rattles

I just bought a Mavica FD-88 and so far love it. But I noticed a rattling sound when it records an image. I've used a FD-81 before and didn't notice a rattling like this with that particular camera. It seems to be working fine despite the noise. Can anyone tell me what this noise is and if it's normal? Thanks

I'm considering getting the FD-88 also. The one I tried out at circuit city rattled & the sales rep said this is normal. I tried out a friends FD-73 & it didn't. I can just imagine how many hundreds of times a day the FD-88 store display was handled, I would rattle too :)

You might want to check out more comments about the FD-88 drive on the Mavica Info Exchange archives posted by Dave Wetzel. Some diskettes seem to cause a "grinder" sound while others don't. I also read some folks had the drive replaced, hope this helps. http://www.mavican.nu/

You have nothing to worry about. It's normal. The 3.5 diskette drive is a 4X speed and the noise you hear is normal. All FD83's and 88's will make noise and vibrate a little.

FD-81 ... Can it use the memory Stick Adapter

I have a Mavica FD81, and I do not believe you can use the memory stick adapter with it. This camera came out long before the adapter was available. The manual only mentions floppy disks.

FD-88, viewing LCD in daylight, too bright

You're not doing anything wrong. Sometimes it's just hard to see to LCD. You could try turning down the brightness, or turning off the backlight, but that doesn't work very well either. There are sun shields for sale. I have a FD-88 also, And so far I've been able to see the screen ok in sunlight. But It's winter in Minnesota so the sun is low in the sky, and I can normally shade the screen with my body. Hope this helps.
