Hi, can anyone confirm if the Canon G5 will work with a 6GB microdrive?

Has anyone actually tried a 6gb microdrive/card in a G5 please?

==> update 24/sep, got a"yes" answer on another forum: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/readflat.asp?forum=1010&message=20163666

I am considering to buy a "retail" version of either the Hitachi 4gb (3K4)
or 6gb (3K6) microdrive but the "compatybility matrix" made me think
about a possible problem here. The compatybility matrix: (http://www.hitachigst.cn/hddt/situdtest.nsf/vwWebCamera?OpenView)
seems to suggest that G5 can use a 4gb but not a 6gb.

I have a found a year 2004 forum comment suggesting the G5 supports FAT32
and will work with 6gb and higher cards. (http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/view_topic.php?id=21417&forum_id=15)
