    Hi everyone,

    I've just bought a finepix s602z and I was just wondering if anyone on this
    ng who's used it has ever tried using CF Type I with it? The specs say CF
    Type II...does this mean CF Type I won't work?

    cheers,
    Marylis

    I have not used CF tpye I. I bought a 1GB Type II, and it works fine of
    course. Is there a reason you want to use Type I? I have read where some
    people have used both. My understanding is that Type I is not as thick as
    Type II (since the latter can also be a microdrive and requires a little
    extra thickness). You have obviously read the manual, so you know you should
    also get a 16x or faster CF card. I don't know if Type I will meet that
    requirement or not, so you should check the speed as well.
    Good luck,
    Bill

    thanks guys! was just asking because I found some really cheap CF cards on
    Amazon, but I'm not sure if they're CF I or CF II, wanted to make sure
    before I bought one and find out that it doesn't work...=) I called up Fuji
    support and they said that they don't "recommend" it, and kind of dodged the
    issue of whether it would work or not...I wonder why they don't recommend
    Type I cards when they work just fine...?
