D70 and Memory Card problems - Photography

I have a new D70. I have tried 3 cards (1G, 512mb, 256mb), all SanDisk SDCFB.

    Default D70 and Memory Card problems

    I have a new D70. I have tried 3 cards (1G, 512mb, 256mb), all SanDisk
    SDCFB. When inserted, the memory card access light flashes and CHR
    appears in the Control Panel where the number of exposures would
    display and where an 'E' had been prior to my inserting the card.
    Whether I attempt to format through the Setup menu or by pressing the
    two buttons twice and having the control panel change to 'FOR' as it
    should, the display quickly changes back to 'CHR' and on the monitor
    'This card cannot be used'. I have read the Troubleshooting section in
    the manual but wanted to see if anyone had other suggestions. Since
    it's happened on 3 brand new memory cards, is it time to see the
    warrenty shop?

    I would say that it is broken.

    Just to be sure -- go to the photo store and ask to try the
    flash cards in another D70. If they work there, you have a warranty
    repair problem. If they don't, then it suggests that there is some kind
    of problem from a new line of CF cards -- and I have not heard of any
    such problem.

    Have you tried the reset button on the camera? You never know. The worst that
    can happen is you'll lose the date and time.

    Hi Tom,

    I occasionally get the CHR error when I use the 1GB Sandisk Extreme III CF
    card in my D70. Just got the card a few days ago...

    It can happen at the end of a format, while changing modes, reading images
    on the camera, etc, etc, any time the camera accesses the card for any
    reason (except actually writing a photo to the card, which is weird). It's
    sporadic, and I haven't lost any photos because of it, but I'm RMA'ing it -
    this card should be thoroughly compatible and apparently it isn't. My Lexar
    1GB 80x CF hasn't ever given me this error.

    Just thought you folks might like to know you're not the only one.

    Tony
