Sony Alpha 100 gives error message when attempting to take pic.


Hi! I just had the same problem with my Sony A100, when I tried two different CF cards. I was getting the same error message as reported above: "Unable to use card" then "Format?" then that format fails. Thinking the camera is broken, I checked online camera repair sites and also called Sony directly. Sony's flat rate, and that of PrecisionCamera is $228 to fix CF card failure. Then my daughter said, "the CF card in my room works fine in the camera" - and lo and behold - it does. The CF card that works is brand PQI and is marked Hi-Speed 60 2Gb. The cards that do NOT work are marked SanDisk Ultra II 1.0Gb and SanDisk 128 Mb. So my advice is, before you give up on the camera as broken, try a number of different CF cards first.

The second cause of CF failure is if someone has pushed a CF card in the wrong way. That can bend one or more of the tiny metal contact pins in the CF socket in the camera. Look carefully to see that all the pins are straight up. [I don't know how one can straighten these pins, or if the whole socket would need to be replaced...but at least you can determine the cause of the CF failure.]

Best regards - Michael

I have an E410 DSLR and am trying to use a Sandisk Extreme IV CF card of 4GB. I get message stating card full until I try to format it and then get a card error. Can you help ?


Currently Olympus has successfully tested Sandisk Extreme 3 up to 8gb without any card error messages. It sounds as if it is a card compatibility issue. Try to exchange to an Extreme 3 and you should be able to use that without any issues.

My Nikon Coolpix 2100 Lexar starter memory card has become unreadable


It sounds like your Dazzle is not compatible with the sandisk. Maybe the Sandisk CF UltraII card have a new update software in it.

Rebel XT will not work with new faster CF cards.


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.

CF Card


Throw the camera away I would guess.

In inserting the card the wrong way round you have almost certainly damaged or bent pins in the base of the chamber.
To confirm this shine a torch down inside and look and see.
If this is the case - there is almost certainly no repair option.
The hours cost of stripping replacing the unit and parts availability mitigate against repairing digital cameras no matter how expensive they are
