    I've come across my first digital camera, an Olympus D-100 P&S (1.3MP)
    that I want to keep in the toolbag but I'm missing the media card.

    Googling for the specs tells me that the largest card at the time was
    64MB. The smallest card I can buy, new, today is 512MB.

    Will it work?

    Is it time to go to ebay for an ancient card?

    As I recall, the largest smartmedia card made was 128MB.

    The limit on the largest card a camera could use was set by the camera.

    Possibly not. As others have said, 128 meg is the largest SM card. I have an old olympus D340 1.3
    megapixel camera here and it is not happy with a 128 meg card. It is really slow at taking pictures
    and writing to the card with that SM card. With the 4 or 8 meg cards that I have it is fine.

    I too had a 340 and as I recall I had to send it back to Olympus to have
    it upgraded to accept a larger card. (I think it originally only
    accepted up to 16 mb and they upgraded it to accept 32.) So I doubt th
    100 will work with the larger cards.
