EOS rebel doesn't recognize cf card, even change de CF


Answers :

My rebel XTi was taking good shots but the data stored was trash, canon service center did a repair and it worked for a few shots on getting it back then the problem returned, could not figure it out until a fella at the local camera store opened the card slot and showed me that the contacts were 'dirty'.
\015\012We spent considerable time carefully cleaning the camera and I have not had problems since we took one of my cats very fine hairs out of the card slot. (To this day she will not tell me when she borrowed my camera or for what use...)

\015\012I have had bad cards as well, expecially those that I bought overseas, several were counterfit and shortly after first use, they'd fail
