Re: Cannot retrieve photos from SanDisk Ultra 11 4GB
Card probably became corrupted. Try running a Memory Card Recovery Program. If that doesn't work take it to a place that'll do that type of thing professionally, a lot of electronics and computer stores do this for a small charge.

There is some free (for home use) software called "Recuva" that you can use to do this. It will look for any files that can be recovered. Provided the card has not been used since the files were deleted the files should be recoverable.
The CF card has nothing to do with the information that is sent to it. It is just a recordable medium that stores what the camera sends to it. There is some other problem with the settings of the camera that caused the photos to be underexposed. Do you use RAW mode for capture of the images? If you do then the Canon RAW conversion software can batch process the photos to correct the exposure.
SanDisk Extreme cards are supposed to ship with RecoveryPro software which should help you get the photos back. If the software is not on your card you may be able to get it from their website or another SanDisk card.
I would suggest reformatting your disk to your camera. We have had those issues and it has cleared it up. Be sure any pics on your camera have been backed-up as you will loose all pics while reformatting. The key is to reformat your disk to your camera (use the camera's menu to located the reformat disk section)...do not use the computer. Hope it works!
I use a Nikon D300 and have Sandisk Compact Flash memory cards. i ahve not come across this problem but would suggest that you insert the memory card into your camera and reformat the memory card. This should clear any errors in the system BUT IT WILL ALSO WIPE ANY PHOTOGRAPHS YOU AHVE TAKEN when formating the memory card.
I have a SanDisk 8G SD card that worked in my camera, but my card reader would not read, so I could not put the on my computer. I put the SD card back in the camera and could still view all of my photos, so I ran a cable from my camera to the computer (one end of the cable was USB and the other end was something smaller that would fit into the port on my camera, I don't know what it is called). The computer was able to read all of my photos through my camera, so I downloaded everything through the camera to the computer.
