I have a Cannon EOS Digital Rebel Xti. When I try taking a picture, I keep getting an error message indicating there is a problem with the CF Card. I have replaced the card several time but keep getting...


What you require is to format the Compact Flash Card. The CF card should be formatted when new and after every download. Format the card in the camera it is going to be used it. Constantly deleting pictures on the memory card will cause major corruptions and total failure. Formatting cleans the memory and allows the camera to communicate properly with the CF Card.
I going to give you several diagrams on where to go in your camera to format. these diagrams are screen shots right from your manual.

While using my Canon Rebel XT camera today the 4MB CF card only allowed me to take a few pictures and then the "CF Full" started to blink. I deleted the card but it is continuing to blink "Full CF".


mine has done this to me before.

dump all of your photos on to your computer
put the card back in the camera
in playback mode, hit the menu button.
in the menu, scroll over to the first settings tab.
there should be a "format" option.
Format your card.
this *should* fix it.

Canon Rebel xt does not accept CF cards for no apparent reason


It sounds like a bent pin in the CF slot. This is not a do it yourself fix. Take it to a repair shop.

8 GB CF card has made the camera lose the Raw function even when I return old 1GB CF card still the same... any ideas?


1st, make sure the camera is in the Creative zone P, TV, AV, M or A-Dep. I have made this mistake many time and everytime I forget I moved the dial.

If dial is in the Creative Zone and still no RAW option then have the camera format the card, if that doesn't work do the following:

Turn off camera,
Remove lens,
Put on body cap.
Remove CF Card
Remove Battery
Let sit for about 30 minutes.
Put battery back in.
Put CF Card back in
Turn camera on
Put camera in Creative Zone
Push Menu button
Push Set button twice and check if RAW is now an option

If not then you can try the clear all settings function in the Set-Up 2 menu. Push the menu button then the left arrow button arrow down to the clear settings line push set the clear all functions.

If this doesn't help then I would say carry it to your nearest Canon Dealer that offers cleaning and service.

Rebel XT won't read my CF card


The card needs to be formated by the camera itself. It should be an option in the menu somewhere. Wish I could be more specific but I dont have a rebel. Remember though formatting erases pictures pictures so if you have anything on the card you will want to get that stuff saved before formatting.
