    Having the same problem with a San Disk Ultra 2 4.0GB, so bought a San Disk Ultra 2 8GB 15MB/s. Same problem. Not a password problem as I have never set a password. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    the sandisk ultra II cannot be read by my multi card reader.  I have been able to use other cards in this slot in the past & just did a test w/ my sandisk adaptor of the same size w/ out a problem.  When I insert the card into the reader the "access light" just stays red as if nothing is in there and my computer can't see it!  Help- we filmed a commercial onto this card yesterday & need to get at these files.  Trying to transfer them to my Mac.

The CF card has nothing to do with the information that is sent to it. It is just a recordable medium that stores what the camera sends to it. There is some other problem with the settings of the camera that caused the photos to be underexposed. Do you use RAW mode for capture of the images? If you do then the Canon RAW conversion software can batch process the photos to correct the exposure.

Sandisk card is not registering when attached to the computer

Make sure the reader is not USB 1.0 because the 4GB CF card is a UDMA type card that the USB 1.0 cannot recognize. Upgrade to a USB 2.0 reader and you should have no problem.

San Disk 2GB is saying it's full when it still has plenty of room

I didn't understand you weren't using it for photography. Here some more suggestions:

* Double check the SD card's Write Protection Switch to make sure it is unlocked.
* If your card reader is old it may need to be replaced. See if the card works properly in your camera. If you hook your camera to your MAC with its USB cable you should be able to upload and download files.

4 gig card not recognized

You will need to get a new card reader for you computer. If it is not able to read the UDMA type cards it will fail to recognize them. The came is UDMA compatible and does not have the problem.

Camera reads, computer doesn't

That is odd. Try the recovery software that comes with the sandisk cards and see if you are able to get them after that.
Do you format your cards each time in the camera before shooting?

Cannot retrieve photos from SanDisk Ultra 11 4GB

Card probably became corrupted. Try running a Memory Card Recovery Program. If that doesn't work take it to a place that'll do that type of thing professionally, a lot of electronics and computer stores do this for a small charge.    <<<Free Recovery Program
