OK, here is the best I can do to tell how it is. I tried 3 different (PNY, Simpletech, Canon) CF. The one which was my birthday gift(PNY), fails to be read by my Soyo internal 6in1 reader. As of lately my PC can’t even recognize the card. If I do a format with my digi-cam, its read fine immediately afterwards, but, after some pictures taken, a little time goes by, the card either crashes my PC or I’m told the card is not formatted and needs to be.
Two other cards I have, work fine interchangeably. How can I find out if the card is dying, or are the symptoms indicated a sign within itself? Is there anyway to reset the card somehow, any software possibly?
