D50 cannot use a 4gb card??? I use 1gb, 2 gb and no issues, now bought a 4gb card and get a CHA indicator on camera and will not shoot pictures. Can this camera be programed to accept a 4gb or larger card??? thanks Mark


No, the D50 will not (as you've discovered) accept an SDHC memory card (anything bigger than 2gb is SDHC). I haven't found a firmware upgrade for the D50 to rectify this issue, either. I own a D50 also, and love it, but bigger cards would be nice. ... Nikon D50 Digital Camera

I had taken many pics in Florida in the last several days with my camera and then 2 days ago, I tried using the camera and I am getting the message "Card Not Intitialized". The camera was kept in its case and did not get wet. Does this mean I have lost all of my photos on the card? Is there a way to correct this ???? The camera is a Fuji FinePix A360 digital camera. The card is a Fujifilm XD-Picture Card, 1GB. Thanks for any help you can offer. JW

I have a Pentax K 100 D. I have tried using a Flash Memory card (a Sandisk Ultra 16GB) but without success. The message 'Memory Card Error" is displayed even before I could format it. The card had previously been used to store files from my PC (where it worked perfectly) but the camera could not format it even after I had removed all the files etc by reformatting it in the PC (FAT32).
