Sorry, No they can't be used! There is a difference in the power pinouts of the Microdrive that prevents it working in the D7xx cameras.

Nikon D200 and microdrive

I assume by "microdrive" you mean the compact flash card - right? Not all compact flash cards will word with the D200 - what is the brand of each of the flash cards you have (and are they all the same-purchased at the same time)?

Windows can't see images from my Hitachi Microdrive

In the first instance you should never format a media card/drive for a camera in a computer Windows does not know about the file type cameras need. Now getting your pictures back www.konvar.com - has PC Inspector Download and install this and run it through the card -preferably in a card reader, rather than still in the camera.

Program Zoom browser won't download pictures from the camera.

Uninstall and reinstall the Zoombrowser. It looks like a driver or something with the program is corrupt. But, first read on before doing anything.

But, before doing the above, check the software and camera configuration. Also check to see that there are no other active programs running in the computer that may be taking presidence over the Canon software and accessing control of the camera's port, thus blocking Canon's software from being able to read the camera.

You can try calling Canon's tech support and ask the question. They will know their product the best.

Microdrive:
A microdrive can fail much easier than a solid state memory card. I have had them fail. Mircodrives are fairly fragile compared to memory cards. Microdrives are mechanical devices. The new generation of memory cards are excellent.

I have an old digital camera with an IBM 1 GB microdrive. The present drive still works! It was terribly expensive when I bought it about 4 years ago. I am now using a 2 GB solid state memory card. I found it to be superior to the old microdrive.

Battery/Power trouble

Using a little common sense I'd be checking the batteries first. You're going to need a new one sometime anyway so get a new one and try it out. Just make sure your battery charger is working first. It sure sound like battery problems to me.

Epson 850Z and ibm microdrive

While my epson batteries were charging, I used a set of alkalines, and something similar to that happened to me (had to re-set time a bunch). When I pulled the batteries out, they were warm enough that the little built in test strip (a thermal lcd) was 'lit up'. It could be a battery load problem.

Sony DSC-D770 and IBM MicroDrive

No, from what I have been reading, it isn't compatible. Other users report an Error 14. Sony does say in their manual that not even all PCMCIA cards will work.

Can EVERIO use other microdrives?

Microdrives that are integrated with other products may not work in EVERIO. JVC recommends using only Microdrives from JVC or retail versions of Hitachi Microdrives (2GB and 4 GB).

Microdrive

The E-20N power supply circuitry is designed differently from the power supply circuitry of the E-10, enabling it to work with the IBM Microdrive.
