I don't own the K200D,but I do own the K100D.And being an older camera then yours,the only way I use a SDHC card was to upgrade my firmware.Once I did that,it wasn't any problem to use the SDHC card.So my guess is 'yes',upgrade your firmware.Good luck!

I'm using a SDHC card in my K200, no firmware update needed.

I own the K200D. I bought it used.
My camera was unable to write to faster cards (2GB Sandisk Ultra SD) but it was able to write to normal cards (2GB Standard Sandisk SD).
Since I upgraded the firmware in my camera, it has been able to write to any of the cards that I've been able to try
My current card is an 8GB Sandisk Ultra SDHC 20Mb/s and it works fine.

The Pentax website says the firmware should fix problems with SDHC.

Make sure you follow the instructions very carefully, ensuring to use good batteries with plenty of charge if you decide to upgrade the firmware.
It's very important for your camera that the process isn't interrupted before it is complete.
If you're unsure, ask someone with experience to help you.

All the best!

I suggest you get the card and try it. I'm using the same card you linked to, and I have not done a firmware update, still using the original firmware. I have also used the card Wasting Light has referred to. If it does not work with the card, then go ahead and update the firmware.

I've been using SDHC cards in my K200D since it was new (never used anything but...). Bought the camera in late '08 and I've never bothered to update to the current firmware version...

Although I had no trouble using the K200 with the original firmware and sdhc cards, since the only improvement cited in the 1.01 release was "improved stability" for card access, it might be worth the seemingly minimal risk involved in updating the firmware.
