I had the same problem and thought I had looked closely at the pins in CF slot but after finally taking it to a repair shop, the tech showed me a bent pin. It really wasn't that apparent first time around. He told me its a common problem as long as they use the CF cards. I had the pins replaced and my D100 is working great. Best of luck.
Ellen, When shooting with the D100 do you have the dial on top of camera set to 'Auto'? If so, then most likely you have some how adjusted to the exposure compensation, so your photos are underexposing. To reset your camera to the factory default settings: Hold down the bracket and flash button for two
These are the buttons marked with a green dot Take a test photo and see if that works.
I am having the same issue with every CF card I put in the camera. But when I put the CF cards in other card readers, the pictures are able to be viewed. Not sure why the camera isn't recognizing the pics on the cards???
Your problem sounds as if there's a bent pin in the CF card holder inside the camera.
To fix it you will have to be very careful with a long blade fine screwdriver. Remember you'll have to straighten it in one go. If you bend them twice you can bet they'll break.
A powerfull light to see the bottom where the pins are is needed too.
If you're not willing to do the job yourself there's a guy on Ebay USA who straightens them.
