Optio MX4 and SDHC


I am looking to buy a 4GB SD card for my Optio MX4 but need to know if it can handle SDHC. It still has the original firmware but I'm technically confident enough to upgrade the firmware if needed,

It's only compatible with regular SD cards (4Gb SD's are available), but I'm not sure whether or not the firmware upgrade would add SDHC support or not.

Optio Mx4


I still use my Mx4 a lot. I bought a bunch of 2gb sd cards, but never tried a 4gb card. I know the Mx4 does not work on a standard 8gb sd card. I would be very curious if it can take a 4gb card. Let me know if you had success.. thanks
