canon 400d not recognising card
Feb 28, 2010

I have a canon 400d. 2 years old 20,000 pictures ( I am a journalist) and always performed impeccably. Today I downloaded my card as usual to my pc no problem (I download with the card in the camera via usb cable)I deleted the pics from the card as usual. Switched off the camera ok. When I switched the camera back on it did not recognise the card said there was no cf card. However by opening and closing the card hatch the card is recognised and pics can be taken to it. But as soon as camera auto powers down or i switch it off the card is no longer recognised but the pics are on the card and can be downloaded via usb as usual. I have tried another card same issue so does not seem to be the card. What has gone wrong? Do I have corrupted firmware or is the camera just plain tired!
any ideas would be very welcome
