I want to know what the maximum size and speed of CF card I can use in my old Pentax Optio 330GS?
You see I'm going to Cozumel Mexico next month and rather than lay out $150-$200 for a inexpensive Underwater Digital Camera, that I may only use once a year. I have a Minolta Weathermatic Film Camera that takes decent photos underwater but it's quit expensive to take a lot of pictures with. So I bought a "Boil In Bag" for the Optio, It's virtually a disposable camera at this point anyway. I only have a 56 mg. card for it that I bought when I bought the Camera and to say the least that isn't very big.

Chances are, it will work OK with CompactFlash cards up to 2GB in size (the largest size that's usually supported by FAT16 without unusual cluster sizes).

Chances are, it will *not* work OK with CompactFlash cards larger than 2GB (larger sizes require FAT32 support, and few cameras would have that when your model was made).
