Question Maybe a dumb question

I was given two 8GB cards for my birthday which is on Friday will they work fir my K100D. I dont want to put them in the camera for fear somthing could go wrong. Is there somthing I have to update maybe still new to this digi stuff. I got the camera used with only 1,400 clicks on it last year and have used the 4GB with no problems Sorry for being a pain in the you know with this.

I dont see why it would be a problem as long it is the appropriate card for the body
I would just pop it in and immediatley format the card

Hey Dirk I see you have a nice collection of gear. Some day I'll have to list all of mine but I could run out of space still got alot of film gear from way back when giving my age away but to give you a hint. my first camera was a Sears TLS and it still works like a charm built like a tank. The info about the cards was good Thank You.
