    Same problem with my Evolt E-500. Started coming up with card error using CF Sandisk 2Gb Ultra 2 card. Purchased new Lexar 133X CF 2 Gb card with same problems. What I can do for whatever reason is right after taking the picture, press "play" or review or whatever it is while it is writing the image to the card, and (usually) I can get a few good pics to save before I get the error again, and power off/on again and start over again. I have tried multiple formatting(s) of the cards, in and out of the camera, but card error continues regardless. Hope someone can figure this one out.
