I just bought a used Canon T1i which, unlike my old Xti, uses SD memory cards. I bought a 128gb SDXC card but when I installed it I got the error message "Card cannot be accessed. Reinsert/change card or format card." I then tried to format it but it wouldn't do so. In searching online, and here, I discovered that SDXC cards are apparently not compatible with this particular model but, before I spend any more money, I'd like to make sure I know what type of card is compatible...
One of the reasons I bought this camera is because I'm wanting to get into shooting video and, so, would like to use the highest capacity card I can.
So, first question; is the SDHC card compatible?
Second question; I see that Kingston and Fujifilm make a 128gb SDHC card. If the SDHC card is compatible will these high capacity ones work in this camera?
Third question; I came across the suggestion that this camera model might be capable of using SDXC cards by updating the firmware. Is this possible?
Thanks in advance for any help/advice.

Thank you. I completely missed that because I was looking at the section on installing and formatting the card...
But, does that mean it'll handle an 128gb SDHD? And is there a firmware update that makes the camera compatible with SDXC?

Doesn't look like there is a firmware update to do that.
You can check for firmware updates at the Canon support site.
There shouldn't be a limit on card size, but many recommend a few smaller cards vs one large one. Less harm if a card is lost, damaged or fails.
