SOURCE: MY MEMORY CARDS NO LONGER
Hi! I just had the same problem with my Sony A100, when I tried two different CF cards. 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

Was your camera off when you connected it to the pc? It has to be off in order to work. Also, Does your camera require drivers? You might have to have the driver installed in your pc order to work.
Also, did you plug in your camera to your pc and go to my computer to see if it's listed there as a drive?
