Canon 40D and 64Gb CF Card

\015 Has anyone tried a 64Gb CF card in a Canon 40D yet? My 40D uses 32Gb CF cards with no problems.\015

Answers :

What i find is that the larger the card the slower the write recovery in taking pictures. If you are an action photographer this is a pain as things happen fast . To have the camera take so long to recover from a write leaves you open to losing some excellent shots. So my rule of thumb is use smaller value cards. If you are just a happy shots photographer then this probably doesn't really matter.

My Rebel XT is taking pictures but some of them are making it on to the memory card and some are not. The images show up on the camera but not on the memory card. I have determined that this is not a memory card issue as I am working with two cameras and two memory cards--both of which work fine in my Canon 40D. Thank you for any help you can offer.

Hi, I got a new ProSpec 4gb flash card and used it last night in my canon 40d. I forgot to format before I initially used it.

How to format an SD card on a Canon SD600 camera when the menu says "memory card locked." The memory card is in the unlocked position. When we put the SD card in another Canon camera (SD780 IS), it works fine, and will store a photo. It appears that something in the SD 600 camera itself is preventing the card from functioning. Can you offer a solution to this problem?
