Problem with Card Access

Hello all

 

I'm using a ScanDisk 32GB CF for my 7D.  I received such a info  "Card cannot be accessed. Reinsert/change the card or format card with camera" message.  I formatted the card after receiving the message the first time before my doughter's party and took around 100 pictures and all seemed fine.  When turned on for the second game, I received the same error message!  From what I have read, I'll loose all the images if I reformat the card again.  Am I doing something wrong, should  I change card?
I also read on  http://360camerasforums.com/index.php?/forum/25-apps-software-editing/ but couldn't find info. k

regards

Probably not but, yes, you should not trust that CF card any longer.  Always format the CF card with the camera you intend on using it with.  Never a computer or different camera.

 

If you can not access the CF card, put it into your computer card reader.  D/L a recovery program, Sandisk has an excellent one.  See if it can retrieve your photos.

 

32 GB is pretty big.  I limit my CF cards to 16 GB and change them more often.  I even use 8 GB a lot.  It spreads out you risk of a bad card.
