Possible (future) Problem Beginning W/ My CF Card?

Mon Jul 12, 2004 6:30 am

Shooting with my new San Disk 512mb Ultra II card this weekend. Had about 160 shots on it when I got a question mark on my LCD saying that an image was corrupt. OK, just deleted it, took a few test shots and it was fine. When I go back now to view photos it takes a good 5 seconds for it to even read/access the card and display it. When I click back and forth to view photos there is a long delay before it goes to the next image. Eventually I changed out cards and everything was fine. I downloaded the images fine and haven't erased the disk, but when I do I'll format it again. Could this be a problem that is just starting with the disk, or just a one time glitch?

Could be either. Better hang on to that warranty card.

Have you tried formatting the card again?

I've been having the same issue with a 1GB Microdrive, only difference is that I couldnt download the images - had to use Datarescue to get them back.

I dont know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone
