CF Card I took my cf card out of my camera to be sure I got the right card when purchasing another card. My first card was 1.0 GB and I purchased another, 2.0 GB. I tried inserting the new card tonight and could not get it to go in. I then discovered that I had the card turned the wrong way when installing. I finally realized the way it should go in and got the card installed. Once in the camera, I began getting an error message saying "Err CF - There is a problem with the CF card. - Replace the

"For" Message I was infrequently getting a "for" message, which stopped me from taking pics. I bought a new card and all was well for a while. However, it started again. I removed and reinserted the card and this seemed to work. Now, the "for" message is constantly there. The green light flashes on for a moment when I insert the card, then goes off. If I turn the camera on, the "for" message flashes on and off.
