Re: sdhc to cf adaptor

Maybe a silly question but does the adapter recognise SDHC cards and not only SD cards ?

Also does a CF card work in your 40D ?

Re: sdhc to cf adaptor

the cards are one and the same the hc is just high capacity and yes the 40d was designed for the cf system

Re: sdhc to cf adaptor

I think Chris was trying to determine if the CF adapter will read SDHC cards as the electronics are different between SD, SDHC and SDXC. While SDXC will backward compatible read SD cards an SD card reader will not read any of the others.

SD(**) cards are preformatted to the required use. There should have been no need to reformat the card. Having done so you might have added / removed a partition table. Check using a straight SD card (<2GB), to see if that card will be read in the CF/SD adapter. If you do not have one of these you can temporarily repartition the SDHC card to <2GB + another partition, and format the <2Gb partition to FAT16, if your operating system will allow. If your camera then reads the card, your CF/SD adapter is only able to read SD cards. The incompatibility between SD/SDHC/SDXC is the big disadvantage with the SD system. The other is the poor transfer rate as opposed to CF.

Could be a faulty adaptor. Put the SDHC card in the adaptor and then in your computers card reader, does it work.
