catch no balls but am assuming u are saying u guys used the main photographer's CF card passing it among yourselves and now 3 cameras (yours, the main photographer's and the 3rd photographer's) kaput because of this ?

Question: how come you (or 3 of u) were using 1 CF card?

(suspect could be 20D cannot support a newer generation larger capacity card?)

Can explain in simpler sentences? Also, why don't you all have your own cards?

First of all - send your equipment for repair back to agent. Long gone are the days when you could send it outside for an ex agent repair person to work on your bodies. Agent end will entertain survey/estimate of cost of repair to you for your go ahead to repair. Never heard of such a killer CF card before - have not googled CF card kills camera mother board yet. Posting so many threads under different name is strange - are you a troll looking to be bashed ? Please make a sweeping statement about how one brand is better than another - some one will come forward to entertain you.

Lesson learned, don't share cards because there are no protections!

no idea. i would hazard a random guess that a hard knock damaged some wiring inside/pins got problem and screwed card up etc etc.

if u can pin down that its the card's error due to manufacturer defect, send a mail to the company that produced the card, along with the claim for repairs. if its a manufacturing defect from the company and it killed ur cams, i think there is a good chance u can claim from them.
