Oops, shows what I know. I had know idea type I would work.

Did you see the post for 1Gig microdrives for $184?!

I think I paid about double that when they first came out. That's progress!

Actually, that's only partially correct. The G1 is compatible with
both Type I and Type II cards -- otherwise we each wouldn't be able
to use the cards we are currently using!

I love my 1gig microdrive. I shoot over 500 images before needing
to erase. I've used it for over a year with my G1 without a hiccup.

Any card that

adheres
to the Type I CompactFlash card standard should work in your camera up
through the 128MB size.

Does this mean that I am limited to a 128 MB card?
