"My Nikon D70 digital camera reported error message on my Toshiba compact flash card when I attempted to use the card. Today, I inserted a Toshiba CF card to my Nikon D70 and wanted to take some pictures. But when I turned on the camera, it says the memory card is invalid. I have inserted this CF card to this digital camera last months and it can still worked fine at that time. I tried to insert another CF card to the digital camera, and it can work normally. So I sure there is something wrong with my CF card. I think it is corrupted, but I don’t know why. Can someone tell me how to solve the problem and get back files when CF card is corrupted and unreadable?"
