Yesterday I deleted old pictures from my 256MB Sandisk Compactflash card through my Canon Powershot A95. There is an option in it's menu to delete the pictures. Normally I just format the memorycard without any problems. After deleting the pictures my memorycard went dead. I got an error message claiming that there was a memorycard error. I cannot format the card with my camera anymore because my camera won't even start up with this card in it. So I took it out of my camera and put it in my pc, tried to format it through windows (vista and xp) and through a dos command (format e. But no go. Then I did a chkdsk e:. It returned stating the card was in RAW format instead of FAT. Well, now I have a dead cf card. I know Sandisk has a lifetime warranty but I just want to get the card working again! Any tips? I do not need programs to recover lost pictures, just something to get the cf card working again.. TIA!
