I was transferring 2 images from my 8GB SanDisk Ultra card via a USB card reader. Halfway through the transfer, the drive icon disappeared from my desktop (I use a Mac). I tried reconnecting the reader but it couldn't detect the card (light on the reader was on when I plugged in the USB cable, plus it can read other SD cards so that's working fine).
Then I tried reading the CF card on my dSLR but it said the card wasn't formatted. Now I knew I probably had lost my images already, which wasn't such a big deal, but when I tried to format it on my camera, the progress bar didn't move a millimeter even after half an hour.
Has anyone encountered this before? Is this the dreaded situation of a corrupted card?
NB I've only had this card for literally 2 weeks as of today.
