1 pin bent resulting in "Card Error" message. Attempt to straighten pin broke it off! Camera now appears to work well. What other problems might this missing pin create? Should I keep the camera or replace it?

Card error I have a e-1. Two memory cards with 1 and 2 gb. I get a "card error" message when I insert either into the camera. I brought it to one camera shop. They said that a couple of the pins (that connect the memory card to the brains of the camera) were bent.
