Ahh, gotcha.
Can you tell I havent gotten into using RAW yet? :lol:
Now that I have that 4GB microdrive, the only excuse I can come up with is lack of willingness/proper software on my computer. Those RAW files are quite big, and it is a pain to use Canon's software to make tiffs and then open in photoshop. NHL if you could tell me a good plugin for 7.0 that would allow me to play with RAW and no conversions are necessary, I just might jump in headfirst, and never look back at jpegs again.

Also regarding the heat issue. .. . My comment was directed towards those that are using the mp3 microdrives and if they are made to the same heat tolerances...

Of couse I would not be worried about any other tolerances since an mp3 player would more likely to get bumped around that your $$$ camera.

Check the camera manual... what you'll find is the operating temperature rating for your camera is usually lesss than the above microdrive 0-70C specs anyway (the 1G are only rated for 0-55C). As far as I can tell the "plastic" generic labeling is the only difference... and I've used them in my laptop as well which get the drives much hotter than inside the camera... to the point where you can't hold them! :P

Beside just like bigger HD their built-in temp sensor will self shut down when their temperature exceed nominal anyway...
