I have had my A1 since April. During that time I've been very happy with it.

Ever since I bought the SanDisk Ultra II 256 Mb card, I've had nothing but troubles with my A1.

I'm curious. Is it my Camera or the Card or a Combo?

When I first bought the card, I put it in the camera and it did not recognize the card. I got mad at it and waited a few hours. When I went back to the camera it had done a 360 and decided to now recognize the card. I never did understand why it did this, so I thought it was just a one time fluke.

However, last weekend I shot a full card at a baby shower. At the end of my shooting the camera froze up and I had to take the battery out to get the camera to even turn off.

Upon returning home I went to download the pictures and the camera did not recognize the card. I was able to take the card out and put it in my (much cheaper) Canon Elph and retrieve the pictures. Thank god for that!

However I have tried to put 2 separate cards into my A1 and neither of the cards are recognized on my Minolta. Both cards are recognized on my Canon.

I can't even get to the menu option to reformat the card.

Am I going to have to call Minolta to troubleshoot or has this happened to anyone else?

Hmmm...although, it sounds like an error that could be caused by turning off (or trying to remove the card) before the camera buffer had finished writing, it may be a camera malfunction. I would give Konica-Minolta a call about it: Phone: 201-574-4000
