Just a quick update.....may help others with similar probs?

Gave up on Fuji CF card.

Discovered that LOOADS of other users had probs with s7000 and CERTAIN BRANDS of cf card.

Sandisk (who seem to share componetry with Fuji cards) can cause lock-ups/errors as well as battery drain with early models.

Interestingly Fuji nowhere in their literature specifically state that the camera IS compatable with CF......only xD and MicroDrive......although the sign printed inside the media 'door' clearly states 'xD and CF typeII Cards'.............??

I found a good price for Transcend 45x CF cards and so far (!) no probs.

Thanks everyone

I'm having trouble of the same kind already discussed here, with an additional wrinkle. My 128MB card had worked perfectly for over a year in my Cannon S50. I took the card to Japan along with my iPod and a Belkin card reader to allow downloads of pictures to the iPod, and made several successful downloads. Then, while shooting with a nearly full card on a very cold morning, the card gave a "memory card error" message when I tried to view a picture (on the camera) that probably came close to filling the card. Now the card gives a "memory card error" message when inserted into the camera, and does not show up at all when inserted into the Belkin. I also tried insterting it into the card reader I use on my PC, and it does not show up there either. I can't use the fixes suggested here if I can't get the card to show up. Any ideas about how to do that, or does this mean I just have a bad card and have lost this set of pictures (that would be a true tragedy, since about half of them were from a remote temple/shrine site that I'll probably never get access to again)?

Thanks for any suggestions!

Make sure to camara is turned "off" before you insert or remove the card. leavingCamara turned on will mess up a card big time.

It can permantly destroy a CF card if you don't turn off the camara when inserting or removing the CF card.

Go to E-bay and get A new CF card, Just make sure you deal with someone with A Good 100% profile.

Try this one (they have ademo version thatyou can download to see if it works). I've seen reports that it was able to retrieve images, even when the card was not recognized by the operating system or other utilities:
