Memory Card Error on K100D

I get this error constantly. I have Formatted 5 different memory cards in the camera and get this error every time I turn the camera on and after formatting.

What capacity cards?
I believe 32GB is the largest the K100D can use.

If the unit hasnít been upgraded the oldest firmware doesnít work with any card larger than 2gb.

SDHC support came as a firmware update.

Had the same problem, I have a 128gb memory card that is formatted to Fat32. I don't think this is a good idea lol
