Dear Adriana,

Try downloading your pictures through a USB2 card reader. I have found that some cards are not 100% compatible - a bit like computer memory: Unless the brand is tested and recommended by the manufacturer, you are never really sure until you try it out both in the camera and through computer interfaces. I strongly recommend Kingston Ram. A 2GB SD card is around $18 AUS and has a lifetime warrantee. If it is not compatible, you will get your money back.

What type of memory card can I buy for my Canon Digital Rebel EOS DS6041 in 2010? Can I use an Ultra CF 8GB card or do I have to use the SD CF and up to how many GB can I use?


Hello

OK, this specific unit supports up to a 8GB Ultra CF card.

Have a look at the link below. It should be sufficient.

No. Have you tried using a separate card reader to download your pics? Take the card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak Kiosk and insert your card...the pics may show up.

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.

I have Sandisk Extreme III 4GB memory card why after i shooting photo the file is cannot read?


Make sure your camera is compatible with a 4GB flash card. Some only take 1 or 2 GB cards. If that isn't the issue, format your card inside the camera with the camera's format utility.

Will canon rebel 350xt take 4 gb flash card


Go to Canon and check for the latest firmware update. Canon will say if the update is to accommodate a larger card. Easiest solution is to buy 2 2GB card. This is a much safer shooting solution. If you card goes bad you will not loose as many pictures.

Retrieving deleted pictures from compact flash card


If you're runnng a Windows system, you can try an undelete program such as the following:

http://www.freewarefiles.com/Undelete-Plus_program_24002.html


Usually, when you delete pictures from a flash device, it just sets a tag at the beginning of each file name telling the compact flash file system that the files can be overwrote. The most important thing to do at this point is not take any more pictures or copy any files to the card. Try downloading and installing that program [it's free] and choosing your card as the drive to scan [if you use a card reader this will be easy, if you use a camera, it may not show the camera or card as a device in My Computer].

Exposure number in Canon does not change


Due to the age of the camera, the Ultra 2 CF card may be using a different architecture than your other CF cards. In other words, the card is incompatible with the camera.

One other problem may be that the camera is not designed to recognize a card which is of a larger capacity.

As I cannot find the 300D on Canon's site it is difficult to find exact specifications as to the abilities of the camera, as to what type of CF card it will accept, what the largest capacity it will accept, etc.

A more fixable problem would be either that the card is not formatted properly - which may be possible through the camera itself. Please try to navigate the camera's menu to find a format option. If not, you can insert it into a CF card reader and attempt formatting it that way. Please see Here for formatting through a camera.

Also, try Here for yet another possible explanation of your problem, as #6.

If the camera is meant to take the capacity and type of CF card, and is not damaged, the only other explanation is that it is write-protected. As I do not know the exact features of your CF card, I cannot say whether or not it has a manual write-protection switch. If it does, it would be a small sliding piece of plastic or metal on the side of the card which toggles the write-protection feature. It may also be write-protected as a file system, in which case you will need to format it.

If the card refuses to format due to a write-protection, you will need to remove the write-protection from the card first and then format it.

The following picture shows a CF card with a write-protection switch on the left hand side.

Thank you and take care,
