Re: CF card problems

1 Can you see if any of the pins in the card slot in the camera have bent.

2 If you put the card in a card reader connected to the computer can you format it and write and read data to the card.

3 If you connect the camera directly to the computer can the computer see the card and any pictures on it.

If 1 is possibly a yes, if 2 is a yes, if 3 is a no then I think that your camera will have to be repaired

If 2 is a no will the test work with a new card, if yes then the camera is most likely breaking the card.

If you can format the card from the computer you must reformat the card in the camera before you use (and most likely after you have got the camera repaired)
