and yet another K30 memory qustion

I thought I had done sufficient research before I purchased 2 Sony SDHC 32 gb, 40mps, type 10. When I try them in my K 30, firmware ver. 1.05, I get a "memory card error" message. Upon entering the menu and trying to format the cards I get the same message. Can anything point me to a work-around or should I just attempt to find someone who can use them.

I have been unable to find where I bought them. I don't have the original packaging. As my nephew has told me, the old CRS disease is hitting me hard.

Thanks all, really enjoy the site.

Appears you didn't research enough on this forum. There are numerous threads about incompatibility between Sony and Pentax.

Try formatting them using your computer (FAT32). Usually works for me

You're right about not looking enough. I was looking at classes, not specific brands. Thanks for you quick response.
