I don't see how that can happen unless somebody pushes the CF like a madman.


Nikon/Fuji.

I've seen one way back in the day when CFs were new and there were like 10 different card types... But never done it myself.

I've had MAJOR SD issues though. :confused:

Damfino! Canon fixed it and charged me just more than $200, even though it looked to me that the pin was out of alignment with the others--not a warranty repair, they said. Can't complain, most every other repairs have been free even when warranty was expired.

I've never done it, but I know someone who has - because they inserted the card backwards and really forced it in.

This is something you have to develop a "feel" for, so you notice instantly when it's not right. We had to do the same to learn to load film into a 35mm camera (and especially when loading film onto a developing reel in the dark).

You need to be able to notice "that doesn't feel right" and stop what you're doing. This is not just true for loading CF cards, it's true for mounting lenses, attaching a camera to a tripod, and many other things.

Engineering can't overcome the need to learn the fine points of using the tool.

Well, I didn't. But a friend of mine did, so I'm voting for her.

I used to see a few threads about it way back in the day but can't recall the latest.

No, but I take my time taking removing or inserting the card.

Don't know how you can put a CF card in backwards? Its practically impossible to push it in with your hand/fingers. I just tried putting it in backwards and there is a safety lock that prevents you from getting the CF card more then halfway in.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick
