I bought tha Canon PowershotS1 ISlast week on a business trip to Germany. I also bought a Dane-Elec 512MB CF card. This card will record images, which I can review on the camera, but I cannot download the saved images using either the bundled Canon software, or even by trying to download to my laptop by seeing the camera as a HDD. My software just says that there are no images to download.

All my other CF cards work perfectly in both my cameras, including the 512MB Dane Elec card.

Also, the Dane-Elec card works fine in my other camera - just not in the Canon. My problem is I am now in South Africa and of course the card is not warranteed here. I have tried re-formatting the card in the Canon camera, but no luck.

Any suggestions?

As an aside the Canon only came with German instructions - fortunately I was able to download an English manual in PDF from an USA website - thank you USA!

I'm one of the S1 buyers who had experienced problems with certain Compacflash cards.

If youto turnthe camera on in player mode directly, the camera would have to be unableto read the images (not only when transfering images to the computer). This is the "normal" behaviour we are experiencing.

I'm waiting for more information... by now the only thing I think I can do is to buy another card making sure its compatibility with the S1.

The store where I bought it will refund my money for the card.
