Compact Flash Sandisc Issue

Hi Folks,

This might be the wrong forum for this, but would be interested to see if it has happened to anyone, and if there was a successful outcome.

Bought 2 x 60 MB/s CF cards recently, with the UDMA indicated on them. Initially, all my CF cards were at least 30 MB/s, but I experienced bother on the rented 7D, with card write errors displayed, so have been upgrading gradually to faster 60 MB/s cards specifically for the 7D. All cards I have, are fine on the 5D.

Perhaps I forgot to format new cards before use, I can't recall, but one of the cards does no longer detect in the card reader, & I have some files that I really need to retrieve from it. I'll bring it in somewhere tomorrow, unless of course someone can provide a solution that I could try in the meantime, such as recovery software etc.

Re: Compact Flash Sandisc Issue

I've had the same isssue with a Kingston card using the GH2. My solution was to hook up a USB cable to the camera and download. I would suspect the same option is available with the 5D.

After repeated use and reformatting, eventually the card started showing up in the card reader again, and all is well.
The horror of what I saw on the timeline cannot be described.
