    As the title says. When I have a large SD card and I choose to store pictures on it, the picture counter stays at 999. I can take 100 pictures and it is still at 999, almost like the interface was never coded to display over 999. Anyone know a reg hack for this?

    I think this is because there is so much memory on your card. Same deal with video. I have a 4GB SD card in my 700wx and it shows 99:59 as available video time no matter how much video I shoot.

    I think you're right. The code says "do not display a number greater than 999 for still shots or 99:59 for video no matter what the available memory is".

    Doesn't bother me. It's when the number drops below 999 that I will be concerned. Scratch that. I will be getting a second 4GB card on Friday. No cause for alarm.

    It bothers me. Windows can't count that high? My 650 would say I had around 11000 photos left on the card. Seems kinda silly that the Palm OS can count higher than WM5.

    not that windows can't count that high, but that the program they chose to control the camera can't/won't/they don't want it to count that high...

    And why not? What would be the advantage to programming in a dysfunctional counter?

    Knowing for a fact how many digits are displayed and that the label will never be larger? That's about the only reason to hard code that from a programming perspective. It's really not a issue is it? You just "have" to know? Ok, take available space and devide by average file size of a pic...

    maybe they knew that it's possible to store gazillions of photos and didn't want a counter with 10+ digits in it to block any of the other stuff on the screen with so little space as it is... who knows...
    it doesn't really matter that much... the onboard camera is relatively useless anyway...

    My point is that if it worked for the treo 650, and WM5 is newer and more capable, plus all of the push that Microsoft seems to have regarding media in general, it seems very silly for them not to have this capability in the code. Especially with regards to the video time remaining.
