    Found the answer -> No.

    2.2GB Microdrive is format with FAT32 from the manufacture factory.
    S7000 supports only FAT16.

    This is very sad, because there is only $10.00 difference between 2.2GB and
    1.0GB microdrives. Unless we can find a away to reformat 2.2GB mcrodrive to
    FAT16 and discard the extra disk space.

    You should be able to format the 2.2 GB microdrive as FAT16, and get 1.9 GB of
    usable capacity.

    well I just wanted to follow up on this... I
    got my camera and the CF works great! I think
    the problem that the guy had in the camera shop had
    was related to the way the CF was initally formated
    fat32..... So by formating the CF as fat16 the S7000 and
    magicstor 2.2GB drive are compatable! I get great
    pics, movies and the "5 in a row quick pics" all work
    as expeced... that's 30+min of video (30fps) and over
    1300 pics @ 6megapix..... I love it!

    cheers,

    This a followup on the Fuji S7000 and Tranacend 2.2GB Microdrive.

    I ordered Magicstor 2.2GB Microdrive (Type II Compact Flash) ( VD1022C )
    Microdrive last Friday from one company in Texas dirt cheap
    ($175.00+$0.00 sales tax+$0.00 UPS ground).

    Was expecting 1 week waiting time.
    Later received an E-mail confirmation. It was shipped from Baldwin Park,
    CA.(first surprise)
    It arrived today around 3:00PM.

    Open it up and check it with flash reader/writer.
    Surprised! The microdrive is running FAT16.
    Plug it into Fuji S7000.

    It shows
    1393 picture space for 6M mode
    30m32s in 640x480 30ps movie mode.

    Start shooting and downloading pictures to PC using USB direct link.
    No problems(yet) at all.

    The total cost of Fuji S7000 + Magicstor 2.2GB Microdrive is
    $549.00(minus $100.00 rebate) + $175.00 = $624.00
