Answers :

Have you ever formatted your cards in your camera? If not, that likely is your problem. They may work fine at first, but with time corrupt. Try formatting these cards in your camera, but note that this will also totally erase these cards. To format, put the cards in the camera, go to the "tools" menu, and select the item stating your cards memory capacity. Then follow the prompts to format, making sure that "low level format" is checked.
