Question about SanDisk ULTRA II 4GB Compact Flash Card Flash

Compact Flash + Airport X-Rays / Metal detector

Hi Guys! I'm from Italy and we are gonna travel to the States in a few weeks. As we are 3 photographers with 3 digital SLRs we plan to bring a lot of CF-Cards. So now my fear is to lose pictures or get a damaged CF when going thru X-Rays or Metal Detector at the Airport. Think X-Rays shouldn't be a big problem, but the Metal Detector works with magnetic fields that could affect the cards. Am I right? What about the Harddisk of my Laptop? Same Problem? Thanx in advance!

Re: Compact Flash + Airport X-Rays / Metal detector

Put all your gear in the xray and do not carry it through the metal detector. It is all safe for modern electronics, and they wont let you carry in the metal detector in the states anyways.

My camera and the memory card got wet a few days ago. When i try to load the card onto my computer it doesnt read the card. Does this mean all the photos are gone for good?

The card is most likely done for but there are a few tricks you can try. If the card is still wet then no device will be able to read it and while it might appear dry there could be residual water inside the unit. The most effective way to get water out is to put it inside a container of white rice (not that you will eat after using it this way) so that the card is completely immersed and leave it in for at least a week. The rice will act like the little packs you see in boxes of electronics and **** the water out of the air and nearby items. You could also use those gel packs if you happen to have any lying around.
If this doesn't work, take the card to a local geek repair center (most electronics stores have their own versions now) and they might be able to do emergency recovery for a fee.

SanDisk Ultra 11 CompactFlash Card 4Gb says "Card not Initalized"

You may need to format the card. There should be a Format command in the Setup menu. To be more specific, one would need to know which model of Finepix camera you refer to.

have you tried to reformat the CF card?  If you deleted the image through your computer and not with the camera, the computer may have removed more than what was needed...
