Reading the file should be deterministic though (if it works once, it should work again - given the same data). It would lend credence to the theory that the camera may have a bug that's causing it to corrupt the contents of the cards.
What's odd is that the corruption hits the same files on different cards. I can think of how the file system driver (the layer that converts file accesses to the blocks on the media) could have a bug (that would cause what's being seen on a single card) but it's unlikely that two cards would have exactly the same allocation of blocks - unless they were the same size, and contained exactly the same files (i.e. behaving a bit like a RAID 1 array).
The weird thing is:
- This afternoon in office, I discovered that same files were corrupted in CF.
- Tonight I copied them into my home iMac when I arrived home.
- Later on after dinner, I checked those corrupted files in iMac, but found they are OK.
- So I checked those files in CF again, they are still corrupted.
I am scratching my whatever, try to figure out what is going on?
