So far the greatest problem I've run into is that the SD memory card in this camera, which is a 4Gb card, will not register in the multi-card reader I have, and glitches my computer (running XP-home edition). I want a digital camera and I would prefer one that lets me swap cards out in the field, so I don't have to lug the camera back and
forth (it would be on foot, in my backpack, and in addition to the other stuff I carry in the field, it's...an extra weight I'd rather not carry twice a day.)
So, from the groupmind here, does anyone know whether it's the size of the card (4 Gb as compared to, say, 2 Gb, which I use in my regular cameras) and if so, is it a l imitation of my multi-card reader or XP? Or the fact that it's set up for that camera? I was able to format it in the camera, from the computer, using the USB cable, but that would mean bringing the camera in...not as convenient. I would think that if I can format the 4Gb card while it's in the camera, it's not XP, or the bus capacity of the USB cable...but...??? My multi-card reader is a mediaGear, and works well with the different sizes of cards I have for the different cameras. I could, however, get a high-capacity one for this kind of card (also what I use in one of the cameras) if that's necessary.
