D2X and CF formatting

Discussion in 'Nikon DX DSLR' started by JerseyJay, May 3, 2005.

  1. My D2X should be arriving this week and having 2 x 1GB Ultra2 will have some limitations, especially when shooting RAW.

    I guess I'm a bit confused about Fat16/Fat32 and D2X. I understand that 4GB Ultra2 has to be switched to Fat32 and later formatted to allow 4GB of space. What about 1GB Ultra2 ? There is no switch there, right ?

    When formatted in D70, 1GB Ultra2 will be in Fat16 ?
    When formatted in D2X, 1GB Ultra2 will be in Fat32 ?

    And I can keep formatting between two without any adverse reactions, right ?

    Now, what about some deals on 2GB Ultra2. I missed that 4GB Dell deal. I wish I purchased one.

    Thanks for all your help.
  2. I am fairly sure just reformatting in each camera should do the trick. I know it works for me on my D1X vs the D2X.

    I have been using the 2gb Kingston Elite Pro compact flash cards. $139 at newegg. Occasionally they have a $20 rebate on them. They are 10mb\s read and 8mb\s write speed.
  3. anyone else ?
  4. I'm really curious about this.

    Nobody went from D70 / D100 to D2X w/ Ultra 2 card ????
