What brand CF card were you using? If Lexar, they have a very good - and free- recovery program.
true but if i forget to put the CF card back in the camera then I'm SOL at the next shootWhy???
Good luck. I wish you well. But this has been beat to death on every camera forum. Use a card reader, or your tower's card slots, to avoid these problems.
I have it set, I forget my CF card for a sports shoot once but lucky I never remove the SD card from the slot.ALWAYS set your camera to not function without a card.
BUT we warned unlike the D200, on the D300,and I don;t know about the S, you must set it for EACH BANK. I shot birds for 2 hours before I realized I had switched banks and the camera was shooting without a card. Just some stupid programing from NIKON, maybe it was corrected on 300S, as per my ranting letter. :smile:
