Largest capacity SD card for Pentax Optio S5N

\015 Hi - Recently bought a 4GB SD for my Pentax S5N but it comes up with an SD card error. What is the maximum size SD card the 5SN will support?Thanks\015

Answers :

I have a non SDHC 2gb but it has an error. I talked to Pentax support and they said the max supported by the camera was 1GB. The biggest I have yet had to work is 512MB. Has anyone had success with a 1 GB card?
The maximum supported size is most likely 2GB SD Card. Cards with 4GB and more are following a new (incompatible) standard called SDHC (SD High Capacity), SDHC cards work only in devices specifically supporting SDHC. The Optio S5N uses the old SD standard where 2GB are the maximum size.

Software Installation I recently went out and bought a Pentax Optio SV. It has 5.0 megapixels, and 4.0x zoom. Camera works fine, all that jazz, BUT its the connectivity issue. Pentax has a software that comes along with it that is obviously outdated by a longshot, and when i go to install this ACDSee for Pentax, I try to install but it just says I need Windows Media Player 7.1 or higher to continue, but i have windows media 10.0.
