Compact Flash + Airport X-Rays / Metal detector
Put all your gear in the xray and do not carry it through the metal detector. It is all safe for modern electronics, and they wont let you carry in the metal detector in the states anyways.
My card won't work on my computer, what is wrong?
When you format the card, be sure to do it in the camera, as the camera firmware writes hidden files to the card.
When you insert the card into the card reader, be sure to set write-protect, so the contents cannot be corrupted.
I suspect what may have happened is that at some point there has been a conflict between files written to the card by the camera and the computer.
How to recover deleted pictures from memory stick
There is some free (for home use) software called "Recuva" that you can use to do this. It will look for any files that can be recovered. Provided the card has not been used since the files were deleted the files should be recoverable.You can find the software here:http://www.piriform.com/recuva
Or you can search yourself for "recuva" in Google. It will be the first unsponsored link in the list of results.You need to insert the card into the computer that has recuva on it and then select the correct drive letter in the software and then scan for deleted files.Good luck.

Belkiin Universal Media Card Reader
Can be connected to your computers USB port and will then allow you to move pictures from the compact flash card to your computer.
After you connect the device and insert the card you will see a short delay and near the bottom right corner of the screen a message will appear letting you know that windows is setting up the new device. Moments after this completes you will see a new window popup asking what you would like to do with the media card. From the list select move pictures to my computer with the Scanner And Camera Wizard. During the move it will remove the pictures from the card and give you more free space for pictures if you click the checkbox labeled Delete Original Pictures.
I recently bought 4 memory
Get right back to Amazon on this one and explain it fully as you have here (or more)
They are a very good supplier to deal with and will very likely count the 30 days from the date you received the cards not from when they were sent.
The CS 4GB SanDisk Memorycard

Ummm... You can't transfer film directly to any computer. The information on film is stored chemically and not electronically.
If you meant to say that your digital camera has images on it and you're having problems then perhaps we can help, but you'll need to state the make and model of your digital camera and the computer operating system. Basically though, most such problems are bypassed simply by removing the memory card from the camera and inserting it into an external card reader attached to your computer.
My camera and the memory card got wet a few days
The card is most likely done for but there are a few tricks you can try. If the card is still wet then no device will be able to read it and while it might appear dry there could be residual water inside the unit. The most effective way to get water out is to put it inside a container of white rice (not that you will eat after using it this way) so that the card is completely immersed and leave it in for at least a week. The rice will act like the little packs you see in boxes of electronics and **** the water out of the air and nearby items. You could also use those gel packs if you happen to have any lying around.
If this doesn't work, take the card to a local geek repair center (most electronics stores have their own versions now) and they might be able to do emergency recovery for a fee.
When I put into my
I sure hope you mean an SD or an SDHC card, since the D40 doesn't take CF cards.
SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.
When sandisk ultra 4 gb inserted into nikon it
Maybe it is having trouble with the size of the memory. Memory cards have grown enormously in capacity in the last couple of years, and even relatively new cameras may not be able to cope with the memory size of the newest cards. It is often difficult to find out the maximum capacity a camera will use, as today's memory cards are much larger that those available when the manuals for the camera was written.
I shot 200 pics w/Canon EOS rebel XT 8mp camera on
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.
