Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a compactflash disk that my camera will not recognise. I have placed it into a Windows XP PC but this will not recognise it either.


Answers :

MOST LIKELY YOU HAVE EITHER A COMPATIBILITY PROBLEM OR A BAD SD CARD. SORRY, BUT IF BOTH DON'T RECOGNIZE IT SOMETHING IS REALLY WRONG WITH THIS FLASH CARD. THEY DO AND HAVE BEEN BAD OUT OF THE PACKAGE. IF IT'S NEW, I'D TRY TO RETURN IT. IF BOUGHT ONLINE, MOST VENDORS ARE PRETTY GOOD ABOUT THESE PROBLEMS. HOPE THIS HAS HELPED!

My Sony DCR-TRV14E no longer works via firewire with my PC.
