My Canon 5d mark 3 carries two cards. I never figured I would use the second card. I always use my CF card.
Anyhow while doing the Civil War shoot I took over 380 shots. When I got home and loaded my cf card into the computer it stopped loading at 240 images. I removed the card and tried again. I figured the card went bad and I had lost all of my battle images (see post). By the way it was a 16mg card shooting in raw.
Then I remembered my second card. Even thou they were jpeg I was able to download all of my images. I now have a folder with 240 raw images and over a 140 with jpeg.
There is a great reason for the insurance card.

Did you try to recover your RAW images using a recovery application/program designed to recover files from SD cards?

My Nikon D810 has two cards. I have it configured to write all images to both cards. Cheapest insurance I have ever bought...

Unfortunately Card Recovery only supports Windows, it is not for MAC systems. /Ralph

Have you tried using Disk Utility to do a repair on the card?

I tried the link you sent and it really worked fast. However it stopped download prior to my normal method.
Question would you trust this card after you have formatted it? Or should you send it to the dump?

Just Google "CF Card recovery for MAC." You will find a hundred options.

I would fill it with junk images a couple times. If it hiccuped again -- off to the dump. If not, I would continue to use it.

Sounds like your camera tried to write 354 files... but only 250 were successful. The other 104 aren't really there; just markers where those files WOULD have been.

Sounds like the card MIGHT be bad.

Go out and shoot a bunch of file on that card. In fact, fill it up, format it, then fill it again.

If you can find the software to check it, do that too. CF cards are expensive!

GOOD LUCK!

To the OP. Did you test your camera again and see if there is any problem with the CF card slot or it's simply a bad CF card?
