IMO, the computer either can't read the card or thinks it's full. The XT is old enough that it may be using a communication protocol that is now obsolete. Try using a card reader instead. Except in unusual circumstances, that's a better solution anyway.

This computer has taken images before.
Could the card just fail?

Hi there,

 

It is certainly possible that the card can fail, especially if you have been using the same CF card this whole time. It would be a good idea to try a second CF card to make sure.
