I have 2 D50's that I bought for the Boy's and Girls Club here local. Can you tell me what the type and max size SD card I can put in them?

Thanks Tom

Hi Tom,

The largest capacity card listed as Approved in the D50 Users Manual is 1GB.
I have read that 2GB SD cards work but 4GB SD cards do not.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

I use 4GB cards in my D50 with no problem.

Did you have to do a firmware upgrade. Do you format the sd card in the D5?

Hi Tom,

There was never a firmware update issued for the D50.

You should always format memory cards in the camera.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

With many D50s the 2Gb cards work with all, the 4Gb do not work with any. I have bought 8Gb cards (SD brand) for $8 at Big Lots and traded them for 2Gb cards out of a D90, D60, D3000 etc.

The Nikon guy told me that 2 GB was the largest card my D50 will handle. It uses IGB cards just fine, but the 1 and 2GB models are getting really hard ot find any more.
