Default Please help with Compact Flash recommendation.

I now have (and am learning) the Nikon Coolpix 3100. I want to get a larger compact flash card. It seems that Lexar is the card Nikon wants me to purchase....is this true from a functional point of view?
Also, when studying the 512mb compact flash cards I see that some are WA and in most cases that the Coolpix 3100 is not on the list of cameras that use WA-----any clues here?
One more question (please dont laugh)...if I get the 512mb card and my Coolpix's max quality is roughly 3mb, then I can store around 170 high quality pics on one card-is my math correct?
Thanks ahead for your time and effort in this matter...I would hate to buy the wrong card.
Sincerely,
MedicineMan

Use either lexar or sandisk, for a 3 meg camera it wont matter that much sandisk tests every memory card, and they should last about 6 million shots yes your math is correct
