No I have not tried that. However, I have been going through the archives and 
there a number of complaints using 128mb CF which happens to be size I am 
using. I further read that 64mb CF seem to work without any problem. So I am 
going to try it again with the different size CF.

Thanks for the help and suggestion!!!
