2gb card is max on the 8fg.

Friends don't encourage friends to fly helis! It can cause part shortages.

I just bought a SanDisk 2GB SD card from Amazon. It successfully works whereas my 4GB SanDisk SDHC card did not.

That is what I got for shy over 5 bucks. Exactly $5.03 Just in case any of you need a sd card. This is what I bought for my Futaba 8fg.

Have tried several, gotten most from eBay very cheaply. As long as you stay 2GB and under, you really shouldn't have any issues. One thing, always put in in TX first, don't format it on PC then install in TX to reformat.

The reason it doesn't work is Futaba 8fg doesn't support SDHC. 2gb or below is not SDHC.

Did you try formatting the card in the 8FGH first?

I'm not sure from your post, but just to make things clear:

Futaba has it's own software utility in the file you download.

When you run it, it loads the software on to the SD card for you. You can't copy/paste it on to the disk.

I've done all my updates using Windows 7, haven't had any issues with the 8FGH updates.

Getting the CGY750 requires a little doing with the drivers, but once installed, I haven't had any issues.

Mike I sent you a pm. Format you're sd card under window 7. Format at Fat then put it in ur radio then it should prompt
if not format it as fat32. You could also got a fake sd card.
Many sandisk well it say it's sandisk but they are not. There
is dud rolling around ebay and other sites. That is why I posted where to get the 2 gb to make sure it will work.

dchekas mike isn't nothing related to that flybarless system. He just trying to get the little program that extract the files to his sdcard. Sdcard doesn't use special driver. But some sd reader needs special driver. Depends on which.

Good you got it going. Now time to setup so every time you
turn on you're radio it ask what model to select before it submit signal. Great insurance. Flying wrong model can end up in a crash. I call this model match alternative.
