I have just recieved a canon EOS Digital Rebel XT and a Sandisk ultra 2 2.o gb CF.
I placed the card in the way the manual told me to and turned the camera on.
It's says "No CF Card" ..even though I have placed one in it.
I tryed formating the card with the camera... but it still said there is no CF card.
Jerseygirl98 does your computer reckonize the card if not it may be a bad card. That does happen..I the computer does right click on the card and rename it .JERSEYGIRLCAMERA
THEN LOOK FOR IT..Try to format the card in the computer..No luck just get another card..

Hi it is common problem of eos xt, xti.. you have a choice for repair your self or bring it to local repair shop. They would charge you around $50 to 215 depend on what they want to charge. (you also have check old cf card for future safety if you want to repair shop check.)
Joe, this happened to me, just tonight... I got a new CF card and stuck it in, turned it on and one CF card flash. Completely dead from there. I found one of the CF card pins bent over, shorted out the socket and blew the mainboard fuse. I took the camera apart, found the fuse (labelled K) about under the set button area) I bridged the fuse with a bit of solder, straightened out the pin in the socket, put it all back together and it's working fine. The fuse is under the right side shield cover, it's labelled with a letter K. There is another fuse on the power inlet board (below the shutter button) and it's labelled 'P'...
1st, make sure the camera is in the Creative zone P, TV, AV, M or A-Dep. I have made this mistake many time and everytime I forget I moved the dial.
If dial is in the Creative Zone and still no RAW option then have the camera format the card, if that doesn't work do the following:
Turn off camera,
Put on body cap.
Remove CF Card
Let sit for about 30 minutes.
Put battery back in.
Put CF Card back in
Turn camera on
Put camera in Creative Zone
Push Menu button
Push Set button twice and check if RAW is now an option
If not then you can try the clear all settings function in the Set-Up 2 menu. Push the menu button then the left arrow button arrow down to the clear settings line push set the clear all functions.
If this doesn't help then I would say carry it to your nearest Canon Dealer that offers cleaning and service.
I had the same message on my EOS/Rebel XTI and the camera shop concluded that one of the pins where the card is inserted into the camera had come loose. They sent the camera back to Canon for repair. Luckily, it was still under warranty at the time.
Observe the connector inside camera, using a flashlight. If there is a bent pin take the camera to service immediately. Don't turn it on any more as we did in one similar case - creating a short circuit that damaged the camera electronics and voided the warranty.
If no visible problems, remove battery and leave it out overnight.
there are two chances: 1. your card is not compatible and 2. the card is defective. good CF-cards you can get from SANDISK. I use them myself w/o a hassle and they are very fast...... keep your hands of Lexar or other Offbrand cards. they are not worth the money you pay for and also too slow. Sandisk cards have a real transfer rate of up to 40MB/s
Check the volume and speed of memcard, maybe it is not compatible. error 99 is an indication that a lens or shutter curtain is not working, so i cant see any connection with the memcard problem. Check your camera memcard compatibility.
