Question about Digital Cameras
I have a Nikon D200, and every time I turn it on to use it, it wants me to reformat the CompactFlash Card. If I do this I will loose my pictures and I can not get it to even open on my computer.
Hi, It may be possible that your CompactFlash Card is nearing its end. You can try formatting it after you have downloaded into your PC all the pictures. Try to use the camera's built-in formatting function. Thereafter plug it back to your PC and use a disk checking utility such as scandisk or Norton Disk Doctor. Do an intensive check including the free space. If the disk check shows any errors, then the CompactFlash Card is no longer a reliable storage media and you are better off purchasing a replacement rather than gamble that it will still work. If for some reason, even your PC can not access the card, you have to use a file recovery program to recover/download/copy the picture files and then try the disk check utility. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
