Hi Guys,

I am trying to find a solution to a (hopefully) small problem...

All of a sudden, I am unable to download images from my CANON EOS, which I eventually managed through my printer.

However, after I deleted the 625 images that were on the 2MB card and the card is empty, I took one shot and a new message appears on the display panel (at the back of the camera) FULL CF

Is there any way that I can clear this?

Is the Card damaged?

Is the Camera damaged?? Please don't let it be this...

What can I do????

Thanks,

Ken

Format the card using the camera's menu choice for format (not your PC) and see if that solves it.

I do that every time I reuse a card (reformat it using a camera's menu choice for format).

"the 625 images that were on the 2MB card"

Wow, imagine how many pictures you could fit onto a new 16GB card...

Hmmmm, 2MB. Maybe that was 2 GB???

Just a point - if you show RAW you won't get 645 on a 2 GB CF - file sizes are much much larger with RAW. And it even gets bigger if you choose to shoot RAW plus L fine.
