I DID SOME MORE RESEARCH ON THIS PROBLEM AFTER YOUR REPLY AND FOUND ONE CASE WHERE A FELLOW WAS HAVING A SIMILAR PROBLEM WITH THE CF CARD AND HIS WAS BEING CAUSED BY A BENT PIN IN THE CF SLOT IN THE CAMERA. I'M JUST GOING TO PASS THIS INFORMATION ALONG FOR WHAT IT IS WORTH, BECAUSE IT DID DEAL WITH THE CF READ PROBLEM IN A D7. THE FELLOW WITH THIS PROBLEM HAD TAKEN HIS D7 IN FOR REPAIR FOR THIS PROBLEM AND IT WAS FOUND, BUT THEY, THE SHOP, WANTED OVER $300.00 TO FIX THE PROBLEM! NOT SAYING THIS IS THE PROBLEM, SINCE I CAN'T SEE THE CAMERA, BUT YOU MIGHT INSPECT THIS AREA, SINCE IT DID CAUSE A PROBLEM IN ONE D7. OTHER THAN THAT, I WAS UNABLE TO FIND ANY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION DEALING WITH THIS TYPE PROBLEM AND SUGGEST YOU MIGHT NEED TO HAVE YOUR D7 LOOKED AT BY A PROFESSIONAL REPAIR SHOP IF YOU DON'T FIND ANYTHING IN THE CF SLOT THAT LOOKS OUT OF PLACE. SORRY, I REALLY LOOKED FOR SOME CLUE TO THIS PUZZLER. IF I CAN BE OF ANY OTHER HELP, PLEASE ASK! JUST REPLY TO:ARCLIGHT1217, AND I'LL BE GLAD TO HELP YOU.

OK, NOT KNOWING WHAT CARD YOU ARE TRYING TO USE I PULLED THE INFORMATION ON YOUR CAMERA FROM A REVIEW SITE THAT STATED THE 7D USES COMPACT FLASH TYPE 1 AND 2. IT SAYS THAT THEY ARE AVALABLE IN 512 MB-1GIG. SO, CHECK TO SEE IF THIS IS WHAT YOU HAVE AND IF IT IS, TRY TO BORROW A FRIENDS CARD TO SEE IF IT WORKS. IT MIGHT BE THE CARD? IF YOU NEED MORE HELP REPLY TO ARCLIGHT 1217.

Memory card is locked, how do I unlock this?


Problems typically are pretty rare with Panasonic Lumix digital cameras. On those occasions where you do have an issue, though, look for an error message on the Panasonic camera for some clues as to how to fix the problem.
he seven tips listed here should help you troubleshoot your Panasonic camera error messages.
  1. Built-in Memory Error error message. If you see this error message with your Panasonic camera, the internal memory area of the camera is either full or corrupted. Try downloading photos from the internal memory. If the error message continues to appear, you may need to format the internal memory area.
  2. Memory Card Locked / Memory Card error message. Both of these error messages are related to the memory card, rather than the Panasonic camera. If you have an SD memory card, check the write protect switch on the side of the card. Slide the switch up to unlock the card. If the error message persists, it's possible the memory card is corrupted and needs to be formatted. It's also possible the memory card was formatted using another device that is not compatible with Panasonic's file structure system. Format the card with your Panasonic camera to fix the problem ... but keep in mind that formatting the card will erase any photos stored on it.
  3. No Additional Selections Can Be Made error message. If your Panasonic camera allows you to "save" photos as your "favorites," you may find this error message because the camera has a limited number of photos that can be labeled as favorites, usually 999 photos. You cannot mark another photo as a favorite until you remove the favorite label from one or more photos. This error message also may occur if you're trying to delete more than 999 photos at one time.
  4. No Valid Picture error message. This error message typically refers to a problem with the memory card. Most of the time, you'll find this error message when you try to play back images from the memory card and the memory card is corrupted, empty, broken, or has been formatted with another camera. To fix the memory card, you must format it, but formatting a memory card causes all photos stored on it to be lost. Try inserting the memory card in another device or in your computer and try downloading any photos stored on it before formatting it with your Panasonic camera.
  5. Please Turn Camera Off And Then On Again error message. At least this error message says "please." This error message most likely occurs when one of the parts of the camera's hardware is malfunctioning, usually a jammed lens housing. To try to fix this problem, start by turning the camera off for a few seconds before turning it back on. If this doesn't fix the problem, try resetting the camera by removing the battery and memory card from the camera for at least 10 minutes. Replace both items and then try turning the camera on again. If the lens housing is jamming as the lens moves through its zoom range, try gently cleaning the housing, removing any debris or grime. If all of these steps don't fix the problem, you'll probably need a repair center for the camera.
  6. This Battery Cannot Be Used error message. With this error message, you've either inserted a battery that's incompatible with your Panasonic camera or you've inserted a battery that has dirty contacts. Gently clean the metal contacts with a dry cloth. In addition, make sure the battery housing is free of debris. You sometimes may see this error message if you're using a battery that's not manufactured by Panasonic. If the third-party battery is working OK to power the camera, you probably can ignore this error message.
  7. This Picture Is Protected error message. You'll see this Panasonic camera error message when the photo you've selected has been protected from deletion. Try working through the camera's menus to figure out how to remove any protection labels for the photo files.
Keep in mind that different models of Lumix cameras may provide a different set of error messages than is shown here. If you are seeing Panasonic camera error messages that aren't listed here, check with the user guide for your model of Panasonic Lumix camera for a list of other error messages, or visit the Support area of the Panasonic Web site.

ERROR MESSAGE ; CAN NOT USE CARD


First try formatting the card again. If you cant do that then try another card. If that does not work remove the batteries from the camera, wait 30 mins and put the batteries back and try again. make sure that the batteries are fully charged and try running the camera without the external memory card just so you can check that it functions correctly. If not then it is a visit to service repair.

Cannot get wireless flash mode to work on my 7D


It is not operator error. I had a similar experience and spent days pulling my hair out trying to figure out the problem.

Unfortunately, the 5400HS is NOT compatible with the 7D. Only to 3600HS(D) and 5600HS(D) are.

The problem stems from the fact that the digital cameras cannot to TTL (real-time) flash metering and have to rely on pre-flash instead.

Because of this, Minolta updated the control protocol to include a signal to tell the flash to pre-flash. Unfortunately, only the two newer flashes recognise and respond to this new signal.

I spent weeks trying various things to get around this, but with no joy. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but your 5400HS just will not work properly with the 7D either wirelessly or when attached to the camera.

7D and CF2 Card Problem


I know it says to format the card in-camera but have you simply tried to use the card with the computer format? I have several 4 Gb cards for my camera (7D) and I have occasionally used the computer format without noticing any problems. Maybe you'll get lucky too.

Its possible you might have to reformat the card in your Minolta Maxxum D7 to get the camera to recognize the card.

STORAGE


No maximum is specified, the camera supports FAT32 and the CFII standard, which specifies a maximum capacity of 137GB.  Shooting RAW+JPEG on an 8GB card will get you about 655 images per card.

Don't insert or remove the card when the red activity light is on. to be really safe, turn the cam off when swapping cards. If you mean, physical damage, label front, holes in, lip to the rear, be gentle.

cheers

This is from Konicas site. don't know if this will be any help for you since you had posted a long time ago. you most like have a new camera by now. anyway. Question: When a CompactFlash is loaded, a message of "Card Error. OK" appears and remains on the monitor display. Answer: Please follow the procedure below. While the message is displayed, press the center of the controller. The monitor display and data panel will turn off. Turn the Main Switch dial to OFF position and remove the CompactFlash from the camera. - When "No Card" message appears next time when the camera is activated in the recording mode, the camera and CompactFlash are OK. - When "Card Error. OK" appears again, the CompactFlash may be faulty. Use other card.
