    i have a Lexar 1GB, and it failed me a few months ago, it has this message for some of my images "No Image Data" and it will hang my D70s, the LCD which usually displays how many images left to be shot, it will display CHR instead. then i got to off the camera, take out the card and put it back in before it works again. The last shot will however be corrupted.

    It's very frustrating and i know how you must feel.

    I heard Aliens build that place as a monument.. they still have 1 or 2 of their spaceships below those "temples". So me thinks its the magnetic flux that is causing all the trouble for digital memory cards, and the main reason for "charging" those worn out batteries.. And yes, compass does not work there.

    I had a Kingston 1mb Elite Pro do similar things at Angkor early in the year. Card died then i reformatted and it came back to life... still after being let down one is not likely to trust the card again. Lost about 100 pics but had 2 cards and a hard disk card reader to back everything up each night.
    one problem that we did have when i bought a 4mb card for my Oly E500 was that it took forever to formatt. So we put the card in a e-1 and it formatted fine. Guys in the camera shop hadn't had to formatt one before so it caught us all out. trick for young players.
