What do you mean with "it will not go back into the camera"?
Do you mean that the camera cannot read the card?
Or do you mean that the card doesn't fit anymore?
If the problem is the reading of the card in the camera ask yourself if you carry a mobile with you near the card... that can make the card to stop working :)
If the problem is the second choise you have to see if the card is ok or the place where you insert the card. It can be damaged with a fall or something...

I'm have the exact same problem. Purchased the camera 3.5 years ago. Recently needed to shoot a video, when finished I set the camera back to Auto and it stayed in video. Portrait mode shows manual, all other modes work as assigned. I've noticed at least TWO other posters having the same problem within the last couple of months. It's as though this camera (mfg. 2007) has a Trojan program from the factory to make us buy newer models.
Other than resetting, is there a way to flush and reload the firmware?
using paint shop pro to browse memory stick via a generic card reader
as always do when suddenly card no longer recognised and no drive is
visible any longer. Upon putting card back into my DSCP73 I get the
dreaded C1301 error and as your drive no longer visible even with win
explorer no chance of a format.
I restarted the PC and plugged back in the card reader to find that
both of my cheap card readers can now see the drive but cant access the
However this now allows right mouse click - scandisk with "fix file
system errors". The drive was half full of totaly fragmented data which
I could then defrag and finally delete. Upon placing card back into
camera, fault has gone and everything is fine.
Well there is a known problem witht eh CF memory design, i hope this is not your problem but it may be. Take your camera into a well lit area or get a small flash light. Open the memory door and peek down inside the camera and look at the pins inside the camera. Are they all uniform? does any look bent or out of place? there should be 2 uniform rows no pins should be missing or out of place. If they are you have a connection problem. This is one of the issues with this memory format and its why they have changed the design to SD. This is common with people who remove the cards alot and use a reader over time the card and the slot becomes warn and its very easy to bend pins because the card isnt sliding in smooth.
If this is your problem (a few bent pins) you may have to take it in for service or try and fix it yourself. Ive read about people using a mechanical pencil. Remove the lead and the pin slips right into the top and you can carefuly move it back.
Hope this helps!
