Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
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.

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.

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.

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.
