I have the Canon Rebel XTi. I am getting a message the CF card has a problem. I am able to put card in computer and it opens the files that are on the card. The camera screen shows a blank space where the photo count should be. I have cleaned the connectors on the body of the camera and the lense. The camera is maybe 1 1/2 years old and I have taken maybe 10,000 photos. could the card need to be replaced? or could it be the camera itself :<(

My Rebel XT is taking pictures but some of them are making it on to the memory card and some are not. The images show up on the camera but not on the memory card.
