Have been using a 256mb ScanDisk Ultra II Complatflash card in my camera for over 3 years and never had any problems with it. Turned my camera on a few days ago and got this message WARNING: (This CF card cannot be read).
when this message appeared now can go anywheres in the camera not even to the menu area. Put another smaller card in an everything works fine no problems of any type.
Went out an bought another large ScanDisk Ultra II CompactFlash card 4.0gb and This card causes the camera to say (out of memory) but will allow me to get into the menu area of the camera. It will allow me try to format the disk but will does not seem complete the format.

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.
You'll have to go to Sandisk.com to verify this for your specific model, but... the problem is
that some firmware versions won't recognize over a 2GB card. There may
be a firmware update available. Find your product on the site using
search, and then look for software updates. Don't hesitate to call
techsupport (866-726-3475).... usually NOT a long wait, they speak
clearly and they're polite.
I use a Nikon D300 and have Sandisk Compact Flash memory cards. i ahve not come across this problem but would suggest that you insert the memory card into your camera and reformat the memory card. This should clear any errors in the system BUT IT WILL ALSO WIPE ANY PHOTOGRAPHS YOU AHVE TAKEN when formating the memory card.

the panasonic SD is rated at 10Mb/sec. ditto for the Sandisk Ultra II. I've got both versions of the Sandisk. the regular Sandisk is only rated at 2 Mb/sec which explains the slow save speed. the Sandisk Ultra II is much faster compared to the regular Sandisk.
