I've been using a 1 GB Lexar Compact Flash card. I took out the card to use in a reader and print since I maxed out the card with pictures I had left on the camera. Now when I reinsert the card it says "card error" and won't let me format the card or anything. I even bought a new one - thinking perhaps the old one was damaged - but still nothing but the "card error" message.
The pictures are still on the old 1 GB card, I've loaded them onto my computer without problem.
I had the same problem. Unfortunately it turned out tha I had somehow bent some of the pin. Look inside to see if some of the pins are not alingned. Then try to bend it back. I bent them back and one got a little messed up resulting in faulty reading of the images. Black flashing parts on the image. Mikes camera said the pins would have to be replaced at $200. I'm not happy as I only used my camera once. Hope you have better luck

The solution was sooo easy.....one of my online embroidery groups suggested to put the card in my Janome and let the machine format it. It took about a minute and did not tell me what it was doing..and It worked! It put two folders on my card, Emb5 and ord#5, and I was to copy the jef files into the Emb5 folder, which I did and bingo! my Janome 9500 read the card and produced a screen with my jef files in it. I am a happy camper....I don't know if this works with all Janome machines but it did with mine. Thanks for being here to help. Pepsi lady
just insert you compact flash card into your card reader and let windows to show under my computer.when you see your flash card under my computer ,enter into your cd and select the pictures files you want to copy to the flash card.Now right click you will see a pop up box ,select sendto > ,now under sendto option you will see your flash drive,just select it and your files will get copy to flash drive.
if you are unable to perform these steps just select the photo files and right click ,then select copy.Now goto your flash drive ,double click on it to open it.Now right click and select paste........that's it. your files will get copy to flash drive.
download the pictures from the camera direct using the appopriate USB cable, you should have no problem then..
I had exactly the same issue, with my freinds camera, turned out that my card reader just didn't like the card, I got an external reader and that worked fine.
Have you tried formatting these cards in your camera? You will find the setting in the menu as per page 26 of the manual.
Also check that the correct card type is set for xD or CF as appropriate.
