Having problems with your Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens ?
Problems with the Compact Flash card
\015 I removed the CF card after having taken many pictures. Then I reinserted the card and had some problems. Now the camera is saying that the card is bad, replace it. I did so and get the same error. This is a new camera and the first time I have used it. I am sick thinking something is seriously wrong with the camera. Can anyone help?\015
With some flavors of windows, you may notice this error. Solution is to format the card while in the card reader using windows. Then insert the card in the Camera and format again. It should work.
You have a bent pin. look inside and see.

My Canon Powershot A95 now has the problem described in great detail all over the web...purple screen of death..that indicates a highly probable ccd failure. Fresh batteries and new compact flash card does nothing. Can't remeber exactly when I bought my A95, but probably around 2001, but it has been well cared for but I am questioning if it is worth the hassle to get it fixed or move ahead into something new. Thanks for advice and recommendations
