50D memory card error/processing speed problem?
Dec 28, 2009

I have a one year old 50D (warranty ended 4 days ago!) that started displaying error 2 - problem with CF card (Lexar 1 GB 4x). My questions are:

1) is the card too slow for the 50D? I haven't had problems before this and shot many sports pics on Al Servo. It seems as if the camera is always playing catch up with any shots, including single photos. Can the processor fail? (Yikes)

2) is there an internal memory from which to recover those photos that were previewed but apparently not written to the card? of course, a few good Christmas photos I'd love to capture if possible. I haven't taken any new photos and tried Pandora Recovery on the CF without success. But I can't get Pandora to recognize the camera via a usb connection.

3) How do I return the 50D to factory settings if perchance I messed up some settings somewhere leading to processing speed/writing speed problems?

thanks for any help provided
