Any issues with a card this size? Does the XT see it just fine? I just want to make sure before I buy one. If there is issues I will probably just get a couple of 2GB cards

thanks

I use two 4GB cards and two 2GB cards, they all work the same.

The only problem (if you want to call it that) with the 4GB cards is that if you shoot JPEG, and not RAW, it will only show that there are 999 shots remaining, even if there are more than that.

Thanks! I remember reading that there was an issue with some cameras and larger cards and them reading the full amount on the card so i wanted to make sure.

Personally, I would get two 2gig cards anyway. In the off chance that something happens with a card I'd rather not have all my eggs in one basket.

I'm using a 4Gb Ultra II for my XT and never had a problem with it.

Really depends on the firmware version. When I first bought my 4 GB they did not work until I upgraded the firmware.
