The wife loves our week old 60D so far, but a problem developed today.
The SD card wouldn't 'lock' in when inserting it. I finally managed to kind of jam it in, but never felt the 'latch'.
I also noticed two of her cards look like they have been damaged. The plastic is worn away on the notch side of bottom of the card.
These are the same cards she used in her xsi without any problems, I suspect the damage was caused by the 60d.
Anyone else with these problems?

Never had that issue with my cards. I brought 2 cards to the 60D that I used with my T1i.

How old are the cards? is there any chance they were loose in a bag and got damaged?

Try another card and see if it replicates the problem?

That happened with my 60D and my 6D. After you've slid the cards in and out enough it will break it in. Then the slot will act completely normal. Absolutely nothing to worry about. In fact, when my 6D did the same thing, I rapidly slid my card in and out to wear it in quicker. Wife wondered wtf I was doing, but hey...there you have it.

This sounds like the opposite problem, this one the card won't stay in. Very frustrating.

I've got one card kind of working now, but it won't 'lock' in, so it randomly loses connection.

You aren't forcing a CF in there, are you? :rolleyes:

Edit: It sounded funnier in my head :oops:

My 60D is about 3 years old. I take the card in and out daily. Sometimes several times. I've never experienced anything like your issue.

Exchange it, if possible. It should not do that. If you can't exchange it, use the Canon warranty.

It's the one disadvantage of internet sales, exchanges are a pain in the butt!

Yes...which is why I almost always buy big stuff from Best Buy these days, they will price match most online retailers now (B+H, Amazon, etc), and I get a 60 Day return policy.

Who did you get it through?

Are you inserting the card correctly? With the card slot up and looking at the back of the camera, the notched corner of the card is at the lower left. Push until substantial resistance is felt and the card should latch into place.

yes! you guys must think I'm nuts - I do have the right card and I am putting it in right.
We have used the camera for a week without problems, this just happened today.

CF Cards should not be forced into the SD slot. Replace camera.
