K100d Firmware v1.02 snd SDHC Card

I just upgraded a newly purchased used k100d to v1.02 of the firmware which is supposed to allow SDHC cards up to 32 GB.

When I inserted an 8gb Lexar Professional SDHC card into the camera, the image counter remains at 999, and never changes.

However, when I insert a 2gb SD card, the counter decreases each time I take a photo.

I thought the new firmware was supposed to allow you to use higher capacity SD cards, especially SDHC.

Any similar experiences or suggestions? Thanks.

You're good to go: since it's a 3 digit display, the counter won't go down until there at fewer than 999 pictures remaining.

Sounds to me like the update worked fine and your using the card.

It also sounds to me like the 999 is a camera hard limit that the firmware update cannot affect.

See what happens as you take more images, does the counter spring into life after another hundred or so images have been exposed.
