I put a 8Gb CF2 card in my 7D and it wanted to format it. Even though I already format it to fat32 on my computer. The 7D gave up and said it couldn't format it? I pulled the card and scanned it for errors on my computer. Everything is correct. Why can 7D read it?

No maximum is specified, the camera supports FAT32 and the CFII standard, which specifies a maximum capacity of 137GB.  Shooting RAW+JPEG on an 8GB card will get you about 655 images per card.

Don't insert or remove the card when the red activity light is on. to be really safe, turn the cam off when swapping cards. If you mean, physical damage, label front, holes in, lip to the rear, be gentle.

Camera cannot read cf card

It is possible that the card capacity is too great for the camera - does the manual give a maximum storage size ? If not, contact the manufacturer who should be able to help you.

How do i switch from internal memory to external memory? my memory chip is brand new but when i turn my camera on it says "out of memory"

Hello,E5700 does not save pictures in internal memory, uses only CF card.
Does the memory card is full capacity?

What storage capacity is the new card?
It is likely that your camera can not handle a larger CF of 128Mb (frankly dont remember).
Also this indication may be by a malfunction of the card or any damage to the connector on the camera, as pin bent or collapsed.
Best regards

The video timer seems to be set at 1 minute is there a way that i can increase the length of time?

The time is a function of how much space is available for storage on your Compact Flash card. As you're inferring that your maximum video size is one minute, am guessing that you have a 128MB CF card. To be able to save larger videos, consider purchasing a larger CF card. You can purchase relatively inexpensive 2GB CF cards these days from eBay (direct from Hong Kong) that would be acceptable for use in your camera. You should be able to get close to 20 minutes with this size card. However, you might also consider using a card reader to download the file to your computer, as downloading from your camera will eat batteries at this filesize.

What size in inches is a A85 memory card. I put

The A85 uses a Type 1 Compact Flash (CF) card. If you're trying to put an SD card into the slot, it won't work. Using a strong light, check carefully in the card slot that you haven't bent any pins before inserting a CF card.

Error code 22

DESCRIPTION: This error occurs when image data cannot be written to the CF card. This error can occur when the CF card is not fully seated in the camera or if the D30 does not detect a card-ready signal within a specified time limit or when the CF card is not usable because it has been corrupted or physically damaged. It can also occur when the camera's battery level is insufficient to completely write the file to the CF card. REMEDIAL MEASURE: Use the DC Coupler or recharge the battery first. If the error continues to occur with sufficient power available to the camera, check that the CF card is properly inserted. If that's not the problem, then try replacing the CF card. If that does not solve the problem, have the EOS D30 and one of the CF cards that is causing the problem examined by a qualified service technician.

My CompactFlash card is no longer recognized by my computer (Sony Vaio notebook w/Windows XP home edition)

It isn't clear from your description, but are you inserting the reader into your USB port, and *then* inserting the CF into the reader? If so, try reversing this -- insert the CF into the reader, then insert the reader (with the CF) into a USB port. It is possible that your PC is only looking at the reader once (when it is inserted) and not finding a CF, then ignoring the CF once you insert it. If your camera can read and write to the CF, then it is unlikely that the CF is damaged. Since you have determined that the reader is ok, and since your PC recognises the reader, it is unlikely that it is a USB driver problem. Similarly, it is unlikely that it is a physical problem with the USB port, or the pins in the reader or the CF card.

Error 30

The "E30" error code is displayed when reading/writing data on a storage card has failed. Especially, the error code "E30" may appears when you tried to remove a storage card while the camera was processing data. Solution To clear the "E30" error, try performing the following procedure. 1. Try using another storage card. If you have another storage card, try loading it in the camera. If the error code is not displayed when the other CF card is loaded, there may be something wrong with the first one rather than with the camera. 2. Use your computer's ScanDisk utility to check the storage card for errors. Use ScanDisk to check the storage card for card error or card failure. Refer to the instruction manual for your operating system or Windows Help for further instructions. (If you are using a Macintosh, use the "Disk First Aid" program to check for card error or card failure. Refer to the instruction manual for your Macintosh OS for further information.) Be sure to back up the data on the storage card on the computer before you check the CF card. If a card error or card failure occurs when you use your computer's ScanDisk, there is something wrong with the storage card. Follow ScanDisk's on-screen instructions to solve the problem. 3. Format the storage card with your camera Try to format the storage card with your camera. Please refer to the "Camera User Guide" for your camera for instructions on formatting CF cards. Also, please note that formatting a storage card will erase all data on the card. Once the storage card is formatted, follow the procedure described in step 2 above and use your computer's ScanDisk on your computer to check the CF card for errors. If a card error or card failure occurs when you are using computer's ScanDisk, there is something wrong with the storage card. If turning the camera off and then on again, and then performing steps 1 to 3 above fails to clear the error, a camera malfunction may have occurred. Please contact the retail store where you purchased the camera or the nearest Canon service center. If the error code is displayed right after you took a picture, the image may not have been recorded. Switch the camera to playback mode to check if it was recorded. Precautions for handling a storage card: - Do not remove a storage card or turn the camera off while the camera is recording, loading, or erasing data on a storage card. - storage cards are high-precision electronic devices. Do not bend, force, or subject them to shocks or vibration. - Do not attempt to disassemble or alter a storage card. - Place the storage card in the supplied case for storage. - Moving a storage card rapidly between temperature extremes may cause condensation in the card, leading to potential malfunctions. To avoid condensation, place the storage card in a sealed plastic bag before moving it into a different temperature area and allow it to adjust slowly to the new temperature. If condens
