Nancy hi,The largest compactflash (CF) card recommeneded is 4gigs. They suusually come formatted but you can always format it on the BP using the 1+3+D+F keys, pressing all four at the same time. Whenever you format a card, it will always place the help file on it and that is all you will see plus a Notes folder which will be empty until you write notes.
You got a CD with your new BP, which has toe software on it. You also can go to http://sun1.aph.org/tech/bp_info.htm and click the Download link.
Enjoy the BP! *---* *---* *---* *---* *---*Did you hear about the guy whose whole left side was cut off? He's all right now.
