Although more and more digital cameras include internal memory, nearly all photographers rely on memory cards to store their photos.
Memory cards, which typically are a little larger than a postage stamp, can store hundreds or thousands of photos. Consequently, any problem with the memory card can be a disaster ... no one wants to lose all of their photos.
One type of memory card that remains in use with some cameras is the CompactFlash, or CF, card, such as the model pictured here from SanDisk.
Although CompactFlash memory cards are pretty sturdy, you may experience problems occasionally with your CF memory cards. Click the link to read some tips to troubleshoot CF memory card problems.
