Memory card I love my Gateway DC-T50 but the card fills up too quickly.I have a Kodak SD 256 MB memory card and want to get a bigger one.So I went and got a 2 GB and installed it , the camera screen said This card cannot be used. I took it back to the store and the clerk said it was probably too big because I have an older camera. So I exchanged it for a 1GB and it shows the same error message. My question is; what is the biggest memory card this camera can use? I have misplaced my manual, or I

I have a Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4.5 Macro lens working on a Nokon D40X and Nikon D300. For medium to long distances the autofocus does not seem to work with this lens. I think it used to but now I notice that from about 40 feet away the autofocus does not work. The same happens with both cameras. Other lenses work fine so I don't think it is the camera. Is there any history of problems or is it a feature of the lens? thanks, Richard Brand

BATTERY I have an older DSC-50 which works great...I bought the new W-170 and they both use the NP-BG1 batteries. I have used the newer battery in the DSC-50 camera and now when I try to use the orignal older battery my camera tells me (For use with compatible battery only) and then shuts down.

ERROR C-2 I've had my KD-300Z for 5 years and it's been great - reliable, easy to use etc (apart from the poor battery life!) I recharged the battery, put in a nnew SD card and took it on holiday. When I came to use it all that happened was a blue screen with the message ERROR C-2 which stayed on for about 4 seconds. This happens whichever function I switch on.The manual troubleshooting section only mentions ERROR-xx or ERROR-99. Any suggestions -please?
