Card failures do occur. Happen to me once. That's why I now put no
more than 60-80 images on a card then switch out to another card.

I think the card is bad and i'm not going to risk it again. The sb card recorded all of the 354 images.

Check to see if there might be a bent pin. I had to discard a card reader after several failures and the card was fine.

I also have a D2X and had several of the IBM Micro-drives. They ended up being somewhat fragile, subject to movement and vibration. Every one I had suffered a head crash and had to be disposed of. In their day they were actually faster than the flash memory, and they were available as a 4G when a 512M was the biggest CF available. Their mechanics also sucked the life out of camera batteries faster than you could swap them for freshly charged! I believe I still have one around here somewhere, but strictly as a memento -- I would not even consider using one today...

Hey BJ here's a tip:

If you want to reply to something someone wrote, instead of having to type it all in or cut and paste it... just go to the bottom of their post and hit "Quote Reply".

When the reply window opens it will have their post in quotes for you. Just move your cursor to the end and start typing your reply.

That should be a LOT easier and quicker.

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.

Speaking from ignorance, (mine, that is), is it possible that shooting raw your 380 shots have filled the 16gb cf card? The camera has not indicated a full card as you still had plenty of room on your sd card shooting jpeg.

Philo, toss the card. Cards are fairly inexpensive. How old is your Canon? If you have backup gear, you might want to send it in for a work over. Your raw files are the closest thing to a negative, you won't get the same results manipulating a jpeg, you lose a lot in color correction and your shadows & highlights due to the compression. don't skimp on your cards. Depending on how important your job is, you also might want to sling an extra camera over your shoulder with a different focal length lens. As usual, it's CYA, all the time, don't let your guard down!

God has nothing to do with it, thank your camera manufacture.

I'm going to purchase a new cf reader just to be sure it is the card and not something else.

When I get over a certain number of images my camera will create a second file for photos. Make sure there is not a second file on the card with the remainder of the photos.
