Not trying to clog up the thread (I've been through all the formatting options with the OS gurus) so, is there a link to the older firmwares for the camera, I'd like to try the 0.49 or earlier as a last resort before buying another card?
I had the exact same problem a few weeks ago with a class 4 4GB Lexar card.
The card worked perfectly after changing its label to VOLUME1, but after reformatting the card with the in-camera format
function, it became invisible to Linux. It looks like a combination of both in-camera formatting and Linux; strange. I could not figure out why.
So far, the only cards that have worked flawlessly under Linux are Kingston class 4 cards of any size. These are the cards sold by the #16 certified sellers.
My personnal recommendation
to anyone buying a #16 camera: buy the camera with
the microSD card (and spare cards as required) from the #16 certified sellers. You will avoid a lot of headaches and frustration.[/edit]
