    A friend, currently in Cambodia, has emailed me with this query. She's formatted the CF card and now, on the control panel LCD where it normally shows the number of exposures, it's showing HR. Camera is Nikon D70.
    Anyone know what this means, apart from the card being stuffed!

    How did she format the card? On a computer on using the camera?

    This is often the reason why cards start "misbehaving" people format them using their computer which isn't necessarily the same set up as their camera.

    From the manual
    On the back screen she should also get a message THIS CARD CANNOT BE USED

    Either the card is not formatted for use in a D70(should be formatted in the camera not on a computer).
    The camera or cards contacts may be dirty.

    Does the manual mention what HR actually stands for?

    I've just looked in the manual and couldn't see anything with HR on?

    No the manual doesn't appear to say anything - I think it's just an error code

    Definitely on the camera.

    She hasn't taken the manual with her and I can't find mine at the moment. I've got a D200 now so haven't used my D70 for a while.

    That's my thinking to - I'll tell her to ditch the card and get a new one, if she's not done so already.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Probably the best move. Even if it starts working again there is now always the heightened possiblity that it'll go belly up with that one in a lifetime image on board

    Have a look on www.fixya.com (or post the same query).It's full of info (possibly that you don't want to know!) but worth a try.

    Thanks for the link to fixya.com - I've not seen that before, looks a useful site.

    Anyway, I've found my D70 manual and it mentions the error code 'CHR' - 'Error accessing memory'. I bet it's that and not just 'HR'. I emailed 'em to clarify.

    Just thought I'd bring you up to date on this. After persevering with the intermittent fault since November she's just had the camera snatched by a 'motorbike thief' in Vietnam. She's going to try to buy a D300 out there.

    PS - I was going to but my own D70 on ebay just before Christmas but when I tried it I had the same fault! It works if I press down hard on the CF card though.

    I suppose a lot depends on your workflow, but this is what I do with my D50 and D80.
    Return home from taking a bunch of photos
    Remove SD card and copy images to PC
    Check images have copied to PC
    Put card back in camera
    Format card in camera to remove images ready for the next outing

    I find it just as easy to format as it is to delete the images and it guarantees there are no remnants (hidden files) stuck on the card that could cause problems later. If you use a program that deletes files from the card as they are copied I guess you may never have the need to format, but you might have remnants on the card.

    I've got one SD card with a loose write protect tab. This often slides towards the 'lock' position and then I get the CHR message. It doesn't have to be all the way towards 'lock' and inserting the card can slide it in this direction. A bit of a pain really...one day I'll remember to put a drop of superglue on it so it can't slide again!!
