Those old cards could be microdrive cards which haven't been supported forever. Who knows. And yes, using cards that give fewer shots than a roll of film would not be the way I'd want to try and use my new $3k camera. Maybe your needs are different than mine though.
My suggestion, go buy some new Sandisk 16GB cards for $50. Problem solved.
