Default Using 2GB SD-Card with 1GB capable Camera.

wrote in message

I've got a question. I've got a ricoh capilo r660 camera (

and a 2GB SD card.

The specs on the camera say that it can handle SD cards up to 1GB. I
would like to know if I can use the 2GB card anyway, even if I'm only
able to store 1GB of pictures on the card and leave the rest unused.
(I've got the SD card here, but not the camera, so I can't try it out)

Any help is appreciated.


I am sorry, but the only way to check compatibility is by trial and error.
It may be that they only tested up to 1GB, and thus can't guarantee
operation with larger cards.
Or, it may be that there are only enough address lines to support 1GB hence
operation with larger cards is impossible.
Or, they have tested with larger cards, but operation was inconsistent.
