Question about SanDisk ULTRA II 4GB Compact Flash Card Flash

Compact Flash Problems

When I put the Compact Flash memory card in my camera and turn it on, the screen says "No images, Memory Card Error".

This just happened. I hooked up my camera to my computer via USB and uploaded the images to my computer then deleted the images from my camera via the computer.

When I went to use the camera the next day, I turned it on and the message describe above appeared. I removed the card and tried the default card that came with the camera and had no problems but when I re-inserted the CF card, the error was still there.

ATTN***** The product is SANDISK COMPACT FLASH 512mb MEMORY CARD, the Product box would not recognize my product listing.

    I have the same problem now, and still don't have any idea to fix it.

    I have been storing photo's on my SanDisk CompactFlash cards, a 32, a 256, and a 512. And writing some photo's to CD of an ocassion. Suddenly, my DELL recognized ZERO images on the cards, then my camera read "No images," and the local Walgreens machine declared the card void of images. What happened? I am thinking it may time to buy a new camera.

    Suddenly I lose all images on all my cards. Thank you.

    I use a Nikon D70 Camera. Shot 15 or 20 photos and viewed the images in the viewer on the Camera and they looked fine. I then took the 512 Compact Flash Card out of the camera and inserted it into my computer for downloading. The images were missing. There were other photos on the card from a previous photo session and they were still there. The case of the missing files? What should I try? Thanks

    I have the same problem as macmacmac it seems.... but a bit different.
    The card showed up on my comp, and as time went by elmss and less images could be opened, or even viewed. I copied everything quickly onto my comp so as not to loose them. Then, none of them could be openned at all, the card now shows up but with no images and weird jibberish as file names in it.
    Is there any way I can recover my missing images!!! I need them for a job! this si teh frist time anythign like this has happened!

have you tried to reformat the CF card?  If you deleted the image through your computer and not with the camera, the computer may have removed more than what was needed...

Olympus E520 compact flash card error

I hope you never tried to put in a memory card in, the wrong way around. This could have damaged the contacts in the camera. Or perhaps only one or two contacts in the camera are dirty or oxidised?
With a bright light and perhaps a magnifying glass, look in the memory card holder, to see of all contacts are clean and shiny and not one is bent, ir has a little dent.
If a contact is dirty use a little wooden or plastic tooth pick, to solve the problem. eventually make the point of the pick a bit softer, be cats for rubbing of some dirt, this will be enough. You never should use sharp looks in or close to a camera.

I put pictures in my memory card but doesn't let me view them in my camera

You need to import the photos to your PC to view them. There are two ways to do so: connecting a camera directly to the computer via USB (Universal Serial Bus) cable and by using a flash memory reader. Using the flash memory reader is considered the fastest method to transfer images. Some of the popular types of flash memory card readers are Secure Digital (SD), Compact Flash (CF), Memory Stick (MS), Multimedia Card (MMC) and Smart Media (SM). Here is how you can use the reader to view photos from your digital camera.

I have ultra flash compact with some film on it and i want to transfer it onto my pc but it doesnt seem to be happening

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.

Digital Camera: How to Fix Compact Flash Memory Cards ErrorIt is not very typical for compact flash memory cards to give you an error. If you do receive an error, it most likely means that a pin within your CF card slot is bent, or your CF card has become corrupted. Unfortunately, if your CF card has become corrupted, you will need to reformat the memory card, which means that you may lose any pictures that were located on the card.
Fixing Your Flash Memory Card

You will want to remove your CF card and the batteries. Take a look inside the CF card slot to see if there is a bent pin. If you find a bent pin, you can correct this problem using a very small and skinny flat screwdriver. Moving very slowly, use the screwdriver to bend the pin back into place. You do not want to use enough force to make the pin back in one shot.
The pin does not have to be perfectly straight, but get it as close to straight as possible. Insert your CF card back into the slow very slowly. You should see the in align itself with the card. You can turn your digital camera on to verify that the compact flash memory card is now working.

Out of Memory?

Check the camera. Many older cameras cannot use the newer larger than 2GB memory cards. If your camera cannot us the UDMA type cards you will have to buy a smaller card.

Same memory card been using but now indicates no memory card when i turn on

Take a look inside your camera's CF card slot. I suspect that you may have a bent pin in there. If so, don't fret. Although professional repair would be more costly than the value of the camera, there is a very good chance that you can repair this yourself. Please see the following:

Nikon D70, displaying error code 'CHA' when memory card inserted. Unable to format or use memory card. Have tried new memory card, still same problem.

CHA errors indicate a communication issue with the CF card. Your card could be going bad, you could have a broken pin, or any number of other problems.

I'm running into this same problem now. If anyone has a good step-by-step to troubleshoot which of the dozen things this error could be, I'd appreciate it.

For myself, I'm planning to start by trying a new CF card.

Memory card error

did you try pluging the card into the pc using a card reader

You should check the settings to see which type of memory card you are using, xD versus Compact Flash. The default xD card that the camera comes with is very small and may not support saving the size of image you're trying to capture. If you are using a card with enough memory the card itself might be defective..
