"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.
