Default Dial is broken

Hi all
I am unhappy, this morning when I have to set the dial in transfer mode, of my 7i, this is broken, he is in my fingers, damaged. I donīt know how a camera of 1000 $ has a little plastic of union between the dial and camera. I was have careful with movement of this dial, but is broken, Iīm disappointed, not with the quality image, this is very good, but yes, with the construction.

I guess that Minolta will fix it under warranty if there is no sign of abuse . Keep us informed please.

Your camera is still under warranty since you just got it, look for the nearest service center in Spain... There's a locking detent on the function knob that ones must press while turning... Do not force it.

I always recommend to get a CF card reader for downloading anyway:

1 - Do not need an AC adapter
2 - It's faster than the camera's USB
3 - You will wear out that tiny camera's USB connector
4 - You don't tie-up your camera, so it can be used for shooting

Thank you all.
NHL, always, I was pressed the locking detent on the function knob while turning, I donīt force it.
I wil buy a CF car reader.
I have a printer, HP psc 950, that has three cards readers system, but sometimes donīt read all cards, I donīt know why, sometimes yes, sometimes not, of all brands, I have five cards reader, two are Sandisk.
Thank you for your advice
I was repaired the dial with a bit of Super Glue 3, and for the moment, is good
