Can I use other cards besides the SanDisk, Toshiba, or Panasonic listed in the Manual. I already have a Lexar 256 card and was wondering if it would be OK to use it.

Thanks,

Carol

You can definitely use other brands other than those listed. I would avoid some of the cheapie fly by night brands however, they make me nervous.

Thank you. Lexar is pretty good isn't it?

Lexar is indeed a solid brand

I use Viking SD memory cards in my D50with no problems.I used a 512 mb in my Kodak cam for over a year with no problems in nearly 10,000 shots.I use the same 512 card in the D50 and racked upanother 2,000 shots.All with no problems.I Have just bought a 1 gig Viking card.

After examining my Viking 1 gig sd card more closely (peeling back the sticker) I found it has Toshiba printed on it.

A 1 gig Toshiba SD card for under £20 ($30) not bad .!!

I live and work in Stuttgart, Germany so I took the advice of a local photo store and brought a Store Berry 1 Gb card. Taken almost 500 photos and only one problem. I used the Nikon NEF format for several shots at a party and cannot view them in any of the Nikon recommeded or Adobe Photoshop plugins. My next card will be a SanDisk, Toshiba, or Panasonic. :sad:
