After some bad experiences with Kingston (card fell apart) and Trascend (corrupt image files) I'm sticking solely with Sandisk.

I use Sandisk Extreme 8GB SDHC cards and Sandisk Extreme 8GB CF cards. Since I shoot landscapes the small sizes aren't much of an issue, but with live events and all coming up I've been using larger 16GB and 32GB versions lately. Still stick with 8GB sizes for landscapes though.

SanDisk 8GB SDHC

I usually stick with sandisk or PNY SD card. I like to stay in the 1 or 2 gig range, but hose are harder and harder to find. I also don't reformat my cards, I store them like old school negatives, I hate the idea of a hard drive crash wiping out all my pics. I like the smaller size cards because I don't shoot video so I don't need the extra space. Plus I have found that smaller cards seems to be quicker.

Now tech heads on here can shoot my logic down, but a smaller card should be faster because there is less space to index and catalog so my camera can locate the free space and write faster. Not to mention smaller cards are cheaper and if I need to take more than 120 high res pictures in one outing I am spending to much time behind the camera.

Question Help...

Just got a SanDisk 4 gig Micro HC card w/adapter. The camera doesn't recognize it and my PC doesn't see it when (using the adapter) plugging it into my PC slot. Any suggestions on how to get it recognized so I can format the little beast?
