    Does anyone know if the M3 CF model is compatible with cards *above* 4GB - namely, 8GB? (background following, for those interested)

    A few years ago, I purchased one of the first M3 Adapters to roll off the line: the Compact Flash model. Admittedly, it still serves me extremely well and I'm really pleased with it. Initially I only had 1GB CF card, but later on purchased a 4GB. At this point, I'm considering an 8 GB card. Before I buy it, though, I'd like to know, well - if I can even use it. Anyone have any ideas? Any help is much appreciated - thank you!

    CF don't work the same way as SD cards. There are no "CFHC" cards. Even if there were a 4GB SD card is over the SDHC limit. If you are using a 4GB card right now you shouldn't have any problems using an 8GB.
