I got a new sandisk ultra II 2 gig card for my Digital Rebel Xt 350D. after inserting the card the first time, the camera said 1.9 gig free. after formating the card, I get 1.8 gig free. is the camera's format different from the factory's format?
also, I don't see the options in any of my menus to see the camera's OS version? it's suppost to be in sp2, but I looked in all the menus and don't see it anywhere.

I had the same message on my EOS/Rebel XTI and the camera shop concluded that one of the pins where the card is inserted into the camera had come loose. They sent the camera back to Canon for repair. Luckily, it was still under warranty at the time.
Observe the connector inside camera, using a flashlight. If there is a bent pin take the camera to service immediately. Don't turn it on any more as we did in one similar case - creating a short circuit that damaged the camera electronics and voided the warranty.
If no visible problems, remove battery and leave it out overnight.
there are two chances: 1. your card is not compatible and 2. the card is defective. good CF-cards you can get from SANDISK. I use them myself w/o a hassle and they are very fast...... keep your hands of Lexar or other Offbrand cards. they are not worth the money you pay for and also too slow. Sandisk cards have a real transfer rate of up to 40MB/s
Check the volume and speed of memcard, maybe it is not compatible. error 99 is an indication that a lens or shutter curtain is not working, so i cant see any connection with the memcard problem. Check your camera memcard compatibility.
Jerseygirl98 does your computer reckonize the card if not it may be a bad card. That does happen..I the computer does right click on the card and rename it .JERSEYGIRLCAMERA
THEN LOOK FOR IT..Try to format the card in the computer..No luck just get another card..
