I'd like to make use of the Sandisk Extreme 3 CF cards in my P25. I have the latest firmware and I am about to order a couple of 4Gb versions. The Knowledge base article was last updated in March before these cards or the latest firmware was available. Can I order 4Gb Sandisk Extreme 3 with confidence? Does the P25 accept 4Gb cards yet?

Yes Sir--you beat me to it--I was about to post the same query on the 4GB Sandisk Extreme III I am about to order.

Phase are you there?

Probably preening their feathers for the BIG announcement tomorrow!

SURE - we were preparing :)

4 GB is supported on the 3.3.4 version of the firmware that is about to go public. (hopefully this week)

The Sandisk card is a bit special.
They have a switch on the side of the card so you either can set it to be one big 4GB disk or switch it between two 2GB partions for cameras that can not handle FAT32 format.
Please see following knowledge base article: ... nguageID=1
