    Hi Guys,

    Thank you for the help.

    I manage to erase all the data on the CFs. Appreciate the help. Now I have 999 shots on each CF.

    As a good practice, once you have copied out the images from the CF card, do a "format card" with the camera before you use the card for the next shoot.
