Question about Cameras
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.
