ERROR MESSAGE: Corrupted CompactFlash card.
Storing digital picture information to a CompactFlash card (as when a digital image is taken) is similar to storing data on the hard drive of a computer -- if the process is stopped or interrupted, the information stored is not complete and, therefore, "corrupts" the storage media. A computer will display a warning message indicating that the hard drive has errors, while a camera will display a message indicating the memory card is corrupted.
The CompactFlash card corruption can be caused by:
* Turning off the camera power before the photo information is completely stored on the card.
* Removing the card before the photo information is completely stored on it.
* Taking a second picture before the camera has finished storing the previous picture.
* Camera batteries that are near the end of their life and need to be replaced.
Once a CompactFlash card is corrupted, it can be used again only by performing a Format procedure.
IMPORTANT! When a CompactFlash card is re-formatted, any pictures stored on it will be lost forever and cannot be recovered.
