    sometimes (usually when im playing around pressing the shutter about 40 times in 10 seconds - obvious exageration but you get the idea)
    when i delete a few images
    then i take another photo
    the last image i deleted comes back in the place of the image i just took and sometimes the next 2 - 5 pictures say "corrupt cannot view"

    im sure it is a result of my Mental Retardation about pressing the shutter so many times when im bored

    Hmmm. I wasn't able to reproduce the problem on my own 450D body. And I haven't run into the problem either, no matter how fast I shoot (I run up against the buffer plenty though...not that that's a bad thing...it forces me to slow down and consider). Then again, I (almost) never delete images in-camera.

    What type of memory card are you using (mean make and model, not that it's an SD)? And when was the last time you did a low-level format on it?

    How long have you had the body? Canon released a firmware update for the 450D...was it two months ago? Something like that. Recently though.

    SD Card model: Kingston SDHC (4)
    Capacity: 16 GB
    True Capacity: 15 GB
    (thats the one i currently use)

    SD Card model: SanDisk SDHC (2)
    Capacity: 8 GB
    True Capacity: 7.5 GB
    (that is my backup)

    I have had the body since... 10th of December 2008 (earlier than i thought :O i thought i only had my body since February.)

    That firmware update, wasn't that to support a new Speedlight flash that came out if it was I'm sure I installed it?

    Tbh, this problem isn't anything that I cannot live with
    It's just the case of, if I get that killer shot.. then i decides that it will do this.


    I think i have low-level formated about one time... I usually just do a complete format, I am guessing a low-level format will format free space and keep your images?

    That sounds broken to me. I would take it in for service asap.

    Nope, a low-level format actually checks that each sector is erased (and functional) before writing the MFT (or whatever other scheme it's using). A quick format just rewrites that part of the disk, so that it looks clean. In reality, the data is still all there, until it's over-written by new data.

    Anyway, like manaheim, sounds like it's broken. (Kingston is a solid memory brand.)

    And yea that update was for the support of the 270EX flash. Fun little toy I must say. I played around with it :p

    Doesn;t happen much though :p just when I'm messing around tbh and it doesn't happen ALL the time, just sometimes, i always review my image after i take it anyways, that way if it does happen, ill know straight away and can re-take it (unless it only lasts a split second)
