CF Card not found

\015 My Canon EOS 300D does not recognize any CF card. I have tested the cards in other cameras and they work.\015

Answers :

Ok here is the issues with the Canon 300D digital Rebel XT model of\015\012camera. First issue bent pins or broken pins the CF card reader on this\015\012camera is Surface mounted soildered onto the bottom half of the\015\012mainboard a large ammount of disasimboly is required. After removing\015\012the mainboard next you need is a desolder rework station. to carefully\015\012remove the CF card reader from the mainboard one messup and it might be\015\012easier to replace the mainboard. Sometimes. next issue is the power\015\012issue if you have no bent pins or missing pins, and the battery door is\015\012pushing on the door closure switch and the memory card door is pusting\015\012on its door closure switch then most likely you issue is 1 of 3 fuses\015\012underneath the power switch. these switches are the size of a few\015\012grains of salt very very small.I charge 150.00 to change the fuses and\015\012225.00 to replace the CF card reader as long as none of the traces are\015\012damaged. if they are damaged the main board would need to be replaced\015\012and it is around 250.00 + depending on the parts cost at the time. If\015\012your good at soldering go for it. if not then let the experts do it.

Hello - I've a V10 Fujifilm camera.Recently the xd card failed and now when I use it ,it shows card error.I've tried several internet software programs to check the card but they all show 'no data found'.When I put the card in my computer it comes up with no data found would you like to format ( which I have n't done ).Do you know anywhere that I could send it or do you think its probably a lost cause.

I have a Canon A400 that is displaying the common 'memory card error' message. I've been through most of the tricks that I've found on the Internet but still no success. Tried multiple memory cards, compressed air and formatting the card. For some reason when I try to format any card it shuts off the camera completely when I select that option from the menu. Any ideas out there?

Can't shoot stills, anything, because it's full in its mind. I found the erase option. It's grayed out, meaning it's not at option because there's nothing to erase according to the camera. Any ideas.

I won a Canon PowerPoint S3 IS at an eBay auction; it was in the working camera listings. It turned out that in the finer detail, the owner said that everything worked except for the "Memory Card Error" found in the display window. I posted this a few days ago. I now have the camera, and I've tried two different memory cards (one came out of another Canon PowerPoint, and it does work) and neither works. Still have the same message;"Memory Card Error." This item was incorrectly listed as working.

The cover on the battery and SD card opening on the camera broke off and couldn't be found on the ground. A small piece of cover and the hinge are still on the camera. When the camera is turned on a message 'card cover open' comes on screen and though I made a temporary cover with a thin piece of wooden pop stick and another with some stiff card and taped them on the camera still came up with same message. Can I get a new cover/door or what can I do??

I imagine the only way to obtain a proper part is to send it to an approved Olympus service centre, hopefully under warranty (though I expect they would not regard this as covered).The camera must have some way of telling that the door is ... Olympus FE-240 Digital Camera

I've found a workaround for that by inserting the SD card into my laptop and transferring them that way (bypassing the proprietary Kodak software).
