I am having a problem with the Extreme 32GB CompactFlash card as well and would like to know if anyone has found a fix. My exact problem is a bit different. It formated without an error message but the numbers it assigned to the pics are like nothing I’ve ever seen before. During the photo shot I can see my pictures on my DLSR but when I go to download I’m lucky to get 2 or 3 pictures out of a hundred before it stops the download. I try to download again and the pictures have now vanished. I ran a test on the card an it says it’s not readable by my computer. Same on my iMac Apple, Dell Windows and my iPad, this can’t be right because I have at a dozen of these SanDish Compact Flash cards. I have a feeling it has something to do with the strange numbers assigned during formating. But that is not a camera issue as I have tested it on 2 other DLSR cameras agaist other compact flash cards. Its this card! I had this happen twice unfortunantely the first time was a costly experience. The second time was me testing this card to see if it would happen again and of course it did. I now have a card I can’t use and these aren’t cheap. Hey SanDisk do you plan on recouping at least the cost of my card. The work however is a lost.
