Hello,
I have a Canon Powershot S30. I have recently put a Sandisk 1GB compact flash card in it. After taking about 80 pictures, suddenly it's showing CF card error, whenever I am trying to take more picture. It also have some pictures which is showing as a corrupted file. I tried to erase those file on and format the CF card. But it's not working. Can anyone help me?
Thanks
Baruma

No, I have not formatted it at all. When the problem started , I tried to format it, but it wouldn't let me. It seems like the card is blocked. I can't take anymore pictures or delete any of the ones I have taken.
