hi all, thanks for checking out this post biggrin.gif

i just gave up on try to get my new 1Gb kingston elite pro to flash my 5500, and dont try telling me what i did wrong as ive tried it all, and as i get the flashing leds problem, and others have said they tried another cf and it worked than i bet that's the go...

but i dont have access to any other cf's, so i want to buy a cheap small one of ebay most likely, but im looking for brands and makes that people have had work with 5500,

if we can get a list going it can be added to the wiki which just has one card mentioned as working and i cant get one...

if there's a list allready somewhere else point that way, otherwise post away wink.gif

I don’t believe anyone has had much success with using a 1GB CF-card (any brand) for flashing?

I will add to Hrw list that:

Lexar 8x 64MB
Lexar 4x 128MB
Kodak 128MB

work very well for flashing.

I used Sandisk 256 CF to flash my SL-5600.

just recieved standard yellow kingston 128mb flash card in mail, and its in the 5500 holding both lights on, (no flashing) so looking good, seems like it's going to work smile.gif

Viking Interworks 128mb works fine for me.

I'm been using my Canon CF cards that came with a (obviously) Canon camera - not sure who makes them but they work fine (both a 16Mb and a 32Mb) - Hey they were free...

I used a cheap 64mb Memorex (recognised as samsung) to flash wit no problems.
