So, I foolishly assumed that all xD cards are the same, but it seems there are 4 standards...

normal
M
M+
H

And they are all not cross compatible. I've got a fuji bridge camera that suits my needs but got a bit fed up of doing the usb cable and bought a card reader. Turns out its only compatible with standard xD cards and not the M type that I had. Consequently the card died (yay...) in the card reader so i need to replace it.

Camera manual says M and H are ok so could I assume that M+ is also suitable?

What a stupid format though, should have done my homework and got the SD version instead :(

Cool thanks :)

What card reader do you have? Trying to find one thats compatible is proving tricky as they just tend to say "xD compatible" - never really know if it will do M + H and dont want to kill another card trying :p
