Compact Flash card says - I need to be Formatted

  jack 08:34 12 Nov 2005

When using media cards- I simply cut'n'paste the images out to PC then reload into camera- Compact
Flash seems to take this type of treament pretty well but Smart Media is no too happy and is best to Format in the camera.
Recently having filled the Smart Media card and started taking a mumber of shots on the Compact Flash[my camera takes both in two slots]- about 10 shots in the Compact -says - 'I need Formatting.'
Why after having taken several shots did it report this?
To proceed I had to format and 'lose' the shots I had taken.

In the event all was not lost- Bad Copy Prombanaged to reover all sorts of every thing including the 'lost'shots.
The pusslment then is why into a session did the card balk?

Sounds like a faulty card to me

These can also be affected by damp or humidity
