Canon Rebel XTi - Err CF

Apparently, my camera is having trouble with my CF card. My PC can read it just fine and I've reformated the card - no dice. I've scrutinized the camera and it does not appear that any of the pins are bent or missing. I might run by the store sometime today and see if switching out with a new card might fix the problem, but I've got the unpleasant feeling that may not be the case.

    I am on my second CF card.....thought it was the card but apparently it is the camera??? HELP

  • Anonymous Jan 24, 2009

    I have the same problem. I thought it was the disk - I now have 2 Sandisk 4GB CF cards - Ultra 2 & Extreme 3 - neither of which work. But the 1GG card that came packaged with the camera does.



    Like the previous comment, I can't see any damaged pins.

Observe the connector inside camera, using a flashlight. If there is a bent pin take the camera to service immediately. Don't turn it on any more as we did in one similar case - creating a short circuit that damaged the camera electronics and voided the warranty.

If no visible problems, remove battery and leave it out overnight.

You've probably gotten bent pins in the camera. Has to go to the shop.

Check with a magnifier and a flashlight the conditions of the CF memory reader pins. Usually this kind of cameras have the common problem of have bent or broken the CF reader pins. This may caused the original CF error. If you tried to format a CF memory card, then the bent or broken pins may caused the Error 99. By the way, error 99 is applicable to a very open range of problems (lens contacts, faulty shutter, CF memory card access errors, etc). If is under warranty your camera, once you confirm the reason of the problem, send it to Canon for repair. If is out of warranty, you need somebody to repair it, which is not easy for the common person. If need help on repairing it, please contact the ID user Great_items_2004 at ebay. Regards and good luck.

SOURCE: Canon Rebel Xti won't read ANY memory card.

It can be very difficult to see if the pins are bent, and harder to see if any have broken off. Do not probe with anything that can bend the pins. I suggest you create a small tool from a strip of paper and a toothpick. Pass the strip of paper over the pins while watching with a strong light. See if you can count each pin this way. A broken or missing pin will require repair by a Canon authorized facility. Your work will save you a diagnostic fee.

I have a CF err on my Canon Rebel XTI EOS


If your camera uses a compact flash card, then something is wrong with it. Possible causes: card needs formatting in camera (this will erase it) one or more pins inside camera are bent. Card was erased or formatted on computer instead of camera.

My canon eos rebel xti keeps showing error code 99



To isolate the cause of the issue, we suggest that you do the
following:

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.

Does the "ERR 99" message appear? If it does, then the camera should
be serviced. If it does not, then please proceed to the next set of
steps:

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.

Does the "ERR 99" message appear? If so, then the CF card is the most
likely source of the issue. Try using a different card.

If the message does not appear, please complete the following steps:

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the lens contacts by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser
or soft cloth. Be careful that you do not let any debris fall into the
camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.

If the "ERR 99" message only appears when one particular lens is
attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.

If you see the "ERR 99" with a different Canon lens attached, then the
camera should be serviced.

XTI err need to replace CF card


Hi
First, if you can. Try and format the card a couple of times and see if this cures the problem. If not i would recomend getting the camera into a dealer to have this looked at. If all cards report the same problem this generally means it is an internal camera problem. The fault and repair of this can be varied hence the suggestion to visit an Authourised dealer.

Err CF


I had the same message on my EOS/Rebel XTI and the camera shop concluded that one of the pins where the card is inserted into the camera had come loose. They sent the camera back to Canon for repair. Luckily, it was still under warranty at the time.

There have been several reports of CF cards that work with all cameras, except the Rebel XTi. It depends on the actual manufacturer of the card. Canon made a change mid-production that affected the data saving. Try another brand of card & you should not have that problem any more.

??? These cameras take standard CF cards (and store images in standard JGP format) that can be 'read' directly by PC's with a multi-media card slot.

If your PC does not have a card slot, you can buy a USB CF Card Reader/Writer for a few dollars ..

PS always reformat the CF cards in the Camera not the PC ..

Cannot transfer images from my Canon DSLR XTi to my computer


Having same issue as above - I thought it was my cable so I ordered a new one. The camera attempts to 'speak' to the pc - and then the Windows box pops up not recognising the USB installed device....I also uninstalled and reloaded the Canon software (had camera for 18 months and only started this rubbish a month back) - was about to re-laod my entire PC - thankfully I saw it was not only me.

Will send mine in for a Firmware update / service.
