Digicams in general
I have a Nikon 990 which I find fantastic. It uses CF media. I was able to use an external flash with nikon cables and an SB26 flash. So I simply set my cam. to no flash and use my ext. flash separately. I have some of the best images on ebay. The price has come down to $850. You can usb from cam to computer, pc or mac.
I have a sandisk which works on both but you don't need it.
I have never crashed with Windows 2000, never. The beauty is that it makes the system plug & play, and the usb works.
