Re: Memory card failure?

There are ways to lose pictures that don't involve memory card hardware failure.

If you remove a memory card from a camera before the camera is through writing to it, you can lose images, or hose the filesystem, even if you're lucky enough not to damage the card electrically.

E.g., a review of the Canon EOS 300D (the first Digital Rebel) noted that "Opening the CF compartment door shuts camera down, loses any buffered images."
