Question about Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera
My mother-in-law purchased a new Canon EOS-40D and has only used it a few times. After shooting her daughters wedding her pictures were copied to my wife's laptop. However the orginal pictures were not deleted from the CF card. When she went to view her pictures on her camera she received an error message on some of the pictures (at one point 10 in a row) that stated "Can not play back image". There was also a bow with a yellow "?" (question mark). What would cause this and how would she resolve this issue?
Possibly corruption of the card - if you are sure the images are backed up, then format the card.

Could be a number of things causing this, is it just one card or any memory card that it will not format.
If only the one card, I would suggest it is the memory card at fault or that it has been formated as FAT32 on a computer, cameras do not like this setting so you could try formating in the FAT format and then re try formating in the camera.
If it is any card that it will not format then you may have bent CF pins in the camera, try taking the card out and looking down the slot with a bright light, you will see all of the gold pins pointing at you, if you see any bent over then that is your problem, you could try rebending them yourself if you are handy, but normally pays to get a tech to replace the pin set, which luckly on the canons is on a seperate board so is relatively cheap to replace.

Error 99 can mean many things. Have you installed the latest firmware for the camera (version 1.1.1)? If you don't have, download it here (for equipment purchased in USA or Puerto Rico):
If you have the latest firmware, try this:

It sounds like you have some bent pins in the card slot. Take it to a reputable camera repair and they can look and tell you for sure.

Slow down after taking 6 RAW files ...
A RAW file is Approx. 12.4MB.
The memory usage is approx. 74,4 MB
The internal memory (Buffer) has a size for up to 75 JPEG compressed images.
Which size has the smallest jpg?
JPEG/Small: Approx. 1.2MB (1,936 x 1,288)
The Buffer is approx. 80 MB.
The data are calculated under Canons laboratory conditions.
The maximum Burst (the 17 shoots) means that the camera is writing to the card and the buffer is full. Than the cam will stopping taking pictures.
Which kind of Card do you use?
Check the spec for the card (write speed) and maybe buy a faster card.

What i find is that the larger the card the slower the write recovery in taking pictures. If you are an action photographer this is a pain as things happen fast . To have the camera take so long to recover from a write leaves you open to losing some excellent shots. So my rule of thumb is use smaller value cards. If you are just a happy shots photographer then this probably doesn't really matter.
Thanks for using Fixya
