Having problems with your Pentax Optio S5i Digital Camera ?

I put an 8GB microsd card (with an microSD to SD adapter) in may Pentax OptioX and when I open my camera, I have a short delay, then I receive an 'Memory card error'. What's the problem? Thank you.

Answers :

The S5i uses SD cards. This means you can use microSD cards with an adapter. However, your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card, which with the adapter appears to the camera as an SDHC card. SDHC cards are electronically incompatible with SD devices and will not work. You need to use SD and/or microSD cards, which max out at 2GB in size.
