i have just bought a new coolpix 8800, got the latest firmware 1.71.

Nikon say that hitachi Microdrives work, when i insert the microdrive it says "this card cannot be used."

I know the card works on my pc, ive formatted it to FAT and FAT16 and FAT32.

I used a similar card a magicstor 2.2gb, similar problem.

Normal Compact flash cards work fine , but the microdrive is a problem, anyone know how to fix it

many thanks

I use both a4 and 6MB Hitachi Microdrives in my 8800. I only format them using the camera. Thats a Nikon recommendation.Try formating using the camera.
