E330 cannot read CF card

My brother removed a CF card which has been working perfectly from his 330 and replaced it with a new card, however once inserted the camera advised it was "unable to read card".
So he took the new one out and replaced the old one only for the 330 to come up with the same message. Neither card can be formatted or accessed by the 330. Both cards however can be opened via a card reader on a computer.

The XD card in the 330 works fine.

All the connections in the camera for the CF card look fine, there are no bent terminals.

Has anybody ever come up against this before?

A bent pin on the camera/card interface?

Re: E330 cannot read CF card

Hi Rod,

No, all terminal pins are fine on the camera, and there doesn't seem to be any damage to either of the card connections. They both can be read through a card reader.

Can you write to the card via the card reader?

Best advice would be to send the camera in for checking.
