It can be very difficult to see if the pins are bent, and harder to see if any have broken off. Do not probe with anything that can bend the pins. I suggest you create a small tool from a strip of paper and a toothpick. Pass the strip of paper over the pins while watching with a strong light. See if you can count each pin this way. A broken or missing pin will require repair by a Canon authorized facility. Your work will save you a diagnostic fee.

SOURCE: I have a canon eos rebel xti and the Compact Flash

If you are referring to the camera the job is up to a repair facility if it's an optional card reader used to transport data to a computer then buy a new reader.

Going back to the camera "normally" a fix like this "depending where in the world you are" will run about $120.00 CDN including the shipping

I took the CF card out of my Rebel XTi EOS camera to look at the pictures on my computer. When I put the CF card back in the camera I am getting the message "There is a problem with the CF card. ...


This is an old posting but I'd like to comment that once the memory card is used in a computer it won't read in the camera again until you format the memory card. Make sure you have all your pictures on the computer before formatting the memory card. A memory card must be formatted in the camera it is going to be used in.

My Canon Rebel xti camera states that is an error with my compact flash, I bought a new one and it still won't work


Pull the cf card out and with a careful eye (maybe a small flashlight and magnifier) look down the slot and check to make sure none of the cF card receiving pins are bent... it happens and it'll give you a card error. Regretfully if this is the case, it'll need a repair, replacement parts are available but it is a little techie to get apart and swap parts... Check the pins... good luck on this..

Why does the word, ''busy'' pop up on the canon rebel xti?


This is the camera writing to the CF memory card. Perhaps your card is a lttle slow, so you will see the message. I use the Sandisk Ultra II CF, labelled as 15Mb/sec and it is very very fast indeed - I don't have any lag with my XTi. Try a different CF, if it is fast enough, the message will go away. Ensure you format the card on the camera too.

New canon eos digital rebel xti


There have been several reports of CF cards that work with all cameras, except the Rebel XTi. It depends on the actual manufacturer of the card. Canon made a change mid-production that affected the data saving. Try another brand of card & you should not have that problem any more.

??? These cameras take standard CF cards (and store images in standard JGP format) that can be 'read' directly by PC's with a multi-media card slot.

If your PC does not have a card slot, you can buy a USB CF Card Reader/Writer for a few dollars ..

PS always reformat the CF cards in the Camera not the PC ..
