I've got a 3 year old Canon Rebel XS. Last week I went to take a picture and I noticed card was flashing and I wasn't able to take a picture. I tried formatting the card in the camera but it kept saying that there was no card. I took the card out and it shows up on the computer.

Does anybody have an idea what could be wrong?

Thanks for any help.

Eddie

Have you tried putting in a different CF card into the camera? It could be that the card you were trying might be defective. You could also try formatting the card in your computer or card reader if you you have one.

I haven't tried another card in the camera. I've formatted it in the computer and it shows up there but not in the camera.

Thanks

Well sorry to hear you're still having problems. I would definitely try getting a hold of another card just to rule out that the card is not what is causing the problem.

Got the same issue with my 6D - here's a link to my thread:
https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1318166

One thing I should have done, before I handed the camera over was to do a firmware upgrade.
Let me know how you go.


Sold my first DSLR & lens = 6D (24-105L) & (40)
Now what prime should i get with the 7d mark ii?...

Try having a look inside the CF slot to see if all of the pins are OK. You could have a bent /broken pin. In that case you would need to have the unit replaced. Which could cost more than the camera is worth. I have seen CF card modules from various Canon DSLR's on the Bay, if you think you could strip the camera yourself. It is probably not that hard as it is modular, so you are not having to deal with actually working on the components themselves.

Thanks for the help. This camera uses a SD card. I'll look to see if the pins are OK. I'll also look to see if reinstalling the firmware changes anything.

No pins in the XS so that is not the problem. I would expect it is the card. I would try some air in the card slot to make sure nothing is lodged in there. The SD cards do have a write protect on them that you could check, but if it works in the computer that is probably not the problem.

No pin on an SD card so connectionntype failures are rare, but worth checking.
