Xsi rebel will not read or reformat memory card


Answers :

You need to have a look at the slot where the memory card goes in. Using a light, look down in the slot at the pins the match up to the card. There may be one or more bent or broken. If the pins are damaged, then it would be a major repair. Usually once they have bent, trying to straighten them back causes them to break off.

After removing the memory card to process some photos at a local walgreens, I went to re insert it, and after I did the camera doesn't seem to read the memory card(SanDisk ProDuo 2.0 Gb).
