Question about Digital Cameras
I was shooting at night and switched my cf card. i must have accidentally pushed something... because i couldn't get it in! nothing looked out of place. when i shut the door and turn it on, the display said there was something wrong with the card (even though there was no card) and to put a new card in. i am a helpdesk tech and i am completely stymied. help help help!!!!!!!
Keep your $50.00. It's an equal bet that by accident, you pushed something else in the memory slot ahead of the CF card, and whatever it is, might still be in there, blocking the contacts.
Look in with a powerful light, and a narrow set of tweezers, then remove whatever is in there, blocking the contacts.
You might get it working in a very short period of time.

$50 says you bent the pins in the socket (or broke one off). Use a good light to look into the base of the socket and check for bent pins.
