Hi Everyone;

I am facing a problem using the Transcend 4GB 120X Compact flash card on my Canon 300D.

After the few shot, the photo in the Transcend 4GB card is being corrupted or gone missing.

Please advice:
1. Is there anyone face the same problem in Transcend 4GB CF card?
2. How to solve the problem? ( I have send to transcend for replace but it did not work for other of their card)

Thank you.

I had format the card. This is a high speed card. I am using on the Canon 300D. I had it before I made my trip to haungshan in Dec 06. It failed. This is why I send out to find out is there any other user facing the same problem. I have send 2 X to Memory world who sold it to me for the warranty.

The 1st time, it is 1 to 1 exchange, the 2nd, it has taken 3 weeks and yet it has not return the card to me.

Please advice:

1. What camera are you using?
2. What is the band of CF card are you using? Scandisk....

Hope to hearing from you.

regards. Friends

Camera to Used: D200

CF Card : Transcend 120X 8G + 4 G (fr friend). + Sandisk Extreme II 4G. (also have 2 nos of Seagate 8G microdrive - but dun intend to use, hence got the transcend 8G).

(had a bad experience with 'lost image' in Nov' 06 at Suzhou - it was with my D70 and it turn out that my D70 card reader was at fault. But lost a good deal of my shots - and cannot-fail Murphy's law applied - few 'important' moments' were lost)


{touchwood - over the CNY holiday - so far so good!)

Hi;

I can understand the painful experience when the CF card failed to record the moment or lost all the lovely picture.....

I believe that Nikon D200 should be able to go well with the Transcend 120X 4G and 8G CF Card. Please tested both the card before bring it to the holiday trip. If it failed here, you can always get to memory world to sort it out.

I am lucky as I did bring along the medium format camera for the holiday trip when the CF card failed to operate.

Just bring along a film camera alone, it will produce faithful picture.

Now, I have to sort out the issue with the Memory world on the Transcend 120X 4G CF card. It has been already coming closely to 3 weeks already....
I hope that they will return another CF card to me quickly else I will have to spend momey to purchase another card. It is a waste of money.
