Removing the Card
When the access lamp is lit or blinking, it indicates that the images
are being written to or read by the CF card, being erased, or data is
being transferred. While the access lamp is lit or blinking, never do
any of the following. Doing so may damage the image data. It may
also damage the CF card or camera.
Shaking or banging the camera around.
Opening the CF card slot cover.
Removing the battery.
If the CF card already contains recorded images, the file number might
not start from 0001. (p.72)
If “Err CF” (Error CF) is displayed on the LCD panel, see page 43.
When holding a hard disk-type card, always hold its sides. You may
damage the card by holding its flat surfaces.
Compared to CF cards, hard disk-type CF cards are more vulnerable to
vibration and physical shock. If you use a such a card, be careful not to
subject the camera to vibration or physical shock especially while
recording or displaying images.
On the menu, if you set [1 Shoot w/o card] to [Off], it will prevent shooting
without a CF card.
