[align=left]I have bought Canon Powershot S1 IS recently. I am planning to buy a 4GB Microdrive. From this Forumi found out that Hitachi 4 GB is compatible.[/align]
[align=left]But prior to that i wrote a mail to Canon customer service and i go this reply.[/align]
[align=left]"Due to the ever-increasing number of companies manufacturing and selling CompactFlash cards, we cannot test and evaluate all the different brands, sizes, and speeds of cards available in the retail market. Any card that adheres to the Type I or Type II CompactFlash card standard, and is formatted with a FAT16 file system, should work in your camera up through the 2GB (the limit of the FAT16 file system) size. Cards larger than 2GB will be formatted FAT16 and the camera will only be able to see2GB worth of storage space"[/align]
[align=left]Is it true that only 2 GB of space is visible. In that case i will better buy a 2 GB drive and save money.[/align]
