Canon 60d built in flash will not pop up.

I cannot give you a straight answer. It all depends. You cannot tell for sure what has happened and in which phase of the file writing things happened to go wrong. If it's just stuck there, it might be possible that it already finished writing but stays in a loop. What it does by writing is to first look in the FAT-table on the disc wich places can be used to write data. If it found area's, it starts writing and at the end it will update that same FAT-table that the space it occupies cannot be used anymore. If you stop in that proces, chances are that the FAT-table gets corrupted and the card will give an error when you try to read. No big problem as every disc tool can rebuild a FAT-table from the data thats been stored on the disc. If there was a more severe error that started overwriting data on the disc in a unpredictable manner, you're doomed. Either way, no other option than to remove the battery, remove the card an see what's the damage and try to recover the images......
Afterwards, just format the card and test it. Card may still work after that.
