    Using Move is more risky than using Copy, as if the move fails you might
    be left with no copy of the image! Move also requires more write cycles
    to the card.

    I use Copy, followed by an in-camera format (to ensure the correct FAT16
    file system is used) when the card becomes nearly full.

    Nikon does not recommend any such thing. It is not in the manuals for
    any of their cameras that I know of.
    In point of fact, SanDisk cards are formatted at the factory to FAT32
    and they are formatted to FAT32 by the camera. Now, if he had formatted
    it to NTFS or something, I could see that.

    I have formatted cards in the computer (Mac PowerBook OS X, no less) to
    FAT32 and used them in both the D70 and the D200 with no problems.

    There is no controller on a Compact Flash card. Just like there is no
    controller on a diskette. Some of the other cards do have a controller, and
    the cameras that use them have problems whenever the cards get bigger.

    Well, I guess it depends what you mena by controller. The CF card does
    not present a raw memory interface, but it does have an embedded "IDE disk
    controller" so that it looks like an IDE disk on the edge contacts (as I
    understand it).

    Which is why they're running full page ads in magazines to overcome
    the bad press they got as a result of not working in Canons a while
    back? Anyone remember that?

  6. Well, it turns out it was a bad CF card from Sandisk. I got a call from
    a store I was dealing with saying that it appears that the card was
    slightly bending a pin in the camera, and while it would work in other
    systems, in the Nikon, it was enough to make it not work.

    That's what he said, anyway.

  7. I'm glad you got it straightened out. I know Sandisk cards have been a
    nightmare for consumers since they don't adhere to high QA standards. It's
    best to avoid them altogether and stick with Lexar.

    So...um...just curious...how much commission do you get shilling for

    Cuz I'm looking for an alternate income myself and I figure you must
    make a good buck with all the bullshit you spew about Le#ar. What are
    we talking about, 0.01 on every shill?
