Can hibernation mode damage CF cards?
A 512 CF card has failed and I am wondering if it could have been damaged by the laptop going into hibernation mode while it was connected to the card reader. The card will no longer format in the camera while other cards work ok in the reader. Has anyone heard of this happening or what other causes could there be. How can I save the card?

theres a diff between computer standby and computer hibernate..one of them doesn't save info on the disks(ie have to save yur work), one of them does(ie dont have to save your work)..forgot which one but since u lose the card functionality already, then next time dont try it
