"Card Not Initialized with 4GB CF memory card"

\015 S700 can not initialized only with 4GB memory card.\015\012It is okay with 2GB CF memory card.\015\012Is there any solution?\015\012\302\240\015

Answers :

Steve, S700 and S7000 are different beasts.

S7000 is only rated for 1Gb compact flash cards. It apparently works with 2Gb ones but as I and a lot of others have discovered no matter how you tweak around sectors and clusters it won't read the thing.

This is a Fat16 limitation.


The 4gb cards are a newer type of SD card called SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity). Most of the S700 production was before SDHC cards hit the market. Later production S700's had been internally tweaked to accept the SDHC cards. 2gb is the largest you can go on your S700's, but beware, some of the 2gb cards are SDHC also, now.
