My friend lend me one of his sandisk and after than no problem anymore.
I tried reformat using camera and that does not help, the problem does not go away.
Capture and view on camera no problem. download to PC then jpg is corrupted, pop back to camera and cannot see preview of that image too.
I switch brand to sandisk and no problem, so that is definitely not camera problem.
Someone steal those 4 cards or I dropped them somewhere, and I actually feed happy... strange huh.

Your experience might be better, but that experience tell me no more kingston. I totally lost faith in that brand.
I drop my sandisk a few times and a couple even have small dents on it but it works fine. I have no idea if kingston would withstand that amount of abuse. I still have one 2GB card but will only take photo of warm climate area like singapore with that.

One thing I've learnt: When plugged in to the PC via card reader, I must ALWAYS eject the card properly. In the past, I'd just yank the card out, and when I put another card in, BOTH cards would end up corrupted!
Still now I do that but now sometimes eject while camera is still on which is not advisable but all my sandisk are still OK and never give me problem.
It could be batch problem since I bought similar site (not same time but similar period). What strikes me is that different model of kingston cf card give me same problem.
Their customer service is pretty ok, no fuss, replace all of them, but I cannot trust the brand anymore after 4 CF card from them give me that problem.
just to give an example of my card setup,
I only go for value and so far they have not disappointed. Unless the camera actually is as fast as the memory card when writing/emptying the buffer onto the memory card, not really using the card full capability even if pay a premium.
You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.
