...Never liked the idea of CF cards...100 tiny pins to fit 100 tiny holes....asking for trouble...thought they'd abandoned 'em.

CB is right, you go to the person who sold the faulty goods, your contract is with them. They have a contract with a wholesaler or a manufacturer which you aren't party to.

Under the Sale of Goods Act it's Tesco's responsibility, they can ask the manufacturer to solve the problem for you but if that isn't satisfactory and you ended up taking legal action it would be Tesco who you took the action against.

Gary I wonder if LCE would be good enough to give you a report to say that they believe the card reader damaged the card and therefore the camera it came out of. That may be enough to sway Tesco to pay. It's up to Tesco then if they take it up with who they bought the card readers from.

Google the Sale of Goods Act

I also don't see how this could happen, and I also don't understand how anyone could come to the conclusion that this had actually happened. as it would be just about be impossible to prove.

Hi all,
Thanks for your comments.The compact flash card is a Lexar supreme 4 GB.It always was a tight fit .My old Dell laptop has an express card reader fitted,whereas my new Packard Bell has only a single. SD socket,hence the need for a card reader.I am grateful for all your suggestions.
When (?) I get my camera back, I will ask for a report and take up the issue with Tesco and Lexar.I have4 been a Canon user for many years,and have never experienced this sort of problem before.
The card reader has a bent pin,but interestingly,not an outside one,so how it became bent is problematical.
I will keep you informed.
Thanks a lot,
Gary.

Was the reader paid for with a credit card? If so then the credit card issuer may ahve some liability, and in my experiemce they are pretty good at sorting out issues like this.

Only if it was the world's most expensive card reader i.e. > 100, surely.

Quite so - that's why I said "may have" rather than "has".

It sounds like damaged pins from inserting to roughly or the incorrect way into one or the other.
