I had a card that I couldn't format. I assumed I needed a new card and purchased one. After using it a short time I am getting the card error again and get the message trying to download through the card reader and also get the message when I try to format the card. I am beginning to think my camera is damaging the card? I don't want to buy another card just to have it happen again. What do you think?
I'm using a Fujifilm MX-1200. I've had it several years. The card is a Roland SmartMedia S16M-3. I am assuming that is generic. I didn't know I should look for a certain one. I thought any would work. Oh well, I'll contact the seller and see what they'll do. Thanks for the information.
I have had several SmartMedia cards die for no reason except that they gave up! I am not a techie so I found a UK repair service at www.massgsm.com/smartmediacard.html and they all now work great even have the Olympus Pan working on them.
