Question about SanDisk ULTRA II 4GB Compact Flash Card Flash
I have a sandisk UltraII 2gb compact flash card, a Dynex Compact Flash Card reader/writer, and a Canon Powershot S1IS. The card is fine inside of the camera, and the card used to work just fine with the card reader. Now, when I try to get pictures off of it by plugging it into the computer, this pops up: 'F:DCII is not accesible. The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.' I tried reformatting it last night before taking pictures, because this had happened previously on my other computer as well. What should i do?
When you format the card, be sure to do it in the camera, as the camera firmware writes hidden files to the card.
When you insert the card into the card reader, be sure to set write-protect, so the contents cannot be corrupted.
I suspect what may have happened is that at some point there has been a conflict between files written to the card by the camera and the computer.

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...

Try downloading your pictures through a USB2 card reader. I have found that some cards are not 100% compatible - a bit like computer memory: Unless the brand is tested and recommended by the manufacturer, you are never really sure until you try it out both in the camera and through computer interfaces. I strongly recommend Kingston Ram. A 2GB SD card is around $18 AUS and has a lifetime warrantee. If it is not compatible, you will get your money back.

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.
