K100D & 4gb SDHC errors

Has anyone checked their K100d (not Super) with SDHC compatability.
Just bought a Kingston 4gb SDHC which works fine on the computer but
I get Memory card error in the camera.
Pentax web site has SDHC usable on K100D.

You have to upgrade the firmware, the newest firmware for the k100d supports SDHC cards.

I can second that. I'm using 4GB class 6 SDHC (paid about $15 for it from newegg!) and no errors after the firmware upgrade.

Keep in mind that the top LCD counter is design-limited (I think) only to 999, so uness shooting in RAW the count is inaccurate............

My K100d (not super) works fine with my 4Gb SDHC (MLC, Class 6 by PeakHardware) after the 1.02 Firmware Upgrade.
