    alright gang, see if you can figure this one out...



    i hadnt messed with my 10D for a couple weeks, and the compact flash was still in its little case, not in the camera. i charged both batteries and turned the camera on to see if it worked, and it did. when i turned off the camera and went to put in the CF card, it wouldnt turn on. i took the CF card out and turned it back on and it worked....


    any suggestions as to what the heck is doing that?

    **EDIT** I just tried reading the card with my card reader and it says there is no "disk" in the card reader. the damn thing is sitting there laughing at me...oh well. I believe it to be the card, what sayest thou?

    Sounds like a bum card to me :( However, don't lose faith. I had that happen to me once and we just let the card be for a while, used a different one, came back a few days later and it worked. Sometimes electronics need a bit of a rest :D

    Wow, you certainly have some wonderful luck, unfortunately for you it's all bad!
    Gotta be the card if the the card reader can't read it.
    So far I've never had a problem with any of my cards (knocks on wood) and that includes: One 2Gb Sandisk, two 512Mb Sandisk's and one 256Mb Lexar.
    I just took a quick look at what CF memory's selling for and you can get a 512Mb card for about $43 (don't use Buy.com!) and that was a Sandisk so a new card shouldn't hurt too badly.
    Good luck and I hope your luck improves in the New Year!
