Default MAX SD SIZE supported??

This site's HP 850 review states HP850's compatibility with up to 256MB SD. The HP 850 manual claims compatibility only up to 128MB. HP Tech Support supports the manual, saying the 256MB hasn't yet been tested by HP.

So, will the HP 850 take a 256MB SD card, and if so, would there be any significant performance difference compared to 128MB?

Default Panasonic 256 works good too

I've had a Panasonic 256 SD in there since I bought it, not one problem. These are kinda hard to find, ebay has them and I've also seen them in some walmarts.

In general I'd go with what the website says since it will usually be more up to date than the manual and the techs may not have the latest info. In fact, I recall once wasting several hours of my life on the phone with techs from another company and ended up finding the solution to my problem on the internet in 15 min.

Both Sandisk and Toshiba 256MB cards run in my HP850 without problems.

Greetings,
Frank

I use the Lexar 256 MB with no problem as long as you have firmware (FW) version 1.01.05 or 2.0. These are the latest.

Hope this reply is not so late.

I tested a cheep sandisk 512mb secure digital card ($8 at curcuit city), taking about 200 pictures. It worked fine. I did not try formatting the card.

Hi Dave,
I answered your other post in this thread ...

As I said I've had no problem with 1 G/byte cards for a couple of years. ... Jack.
