i have an old maxxum 5d with very few clicks on it. i'd like to switch from the CF chip to an SD chip, so i bought the SDXC/SDHC 6th generation Extreme CF adapter (type II) and a SanDisk 80mb SD chip (class 10). however, the camera won't format the chip.
given the age of the camera (~12 years old) i'm guessing now that i should have purchased a type I adapter instead, but before i do that i'd like to know whether this even has a chance of working.
Throwing money away.
That camera is only 6mp, fairly noisy and poor dynamic range. It was a lovely camera in it's day, I had the 7d and loved it. But it is so old and so out dated you can replace it quite cheaply with something which would produce far better results.
