card cannot be read
« on: February 07, 2016, 04:20:45 PM »
I have had the T2i for 3-4 years without any problems.
Now I get the message "card cannot be read" with different SD cards.
Wondering if anyone has any ideas before I send it in for repair.

  • Old age causes memory loss. Or worse, memory loss.

A factory reset might do the trick. (I don't have a t2i anymore so I don't have the manual to show you the exact location for doing this, sorry)
Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?

I used to be a very negative person... but then I went digital.

What Doodle said ^^^^

Unless you've done something 'out there' like formatting all your cards NTFS for some reason, it's unlikely there's anything you can do. A reset would be about it. Dial "P" mode or higher, three-spot settings menu, "Clear Settings". Also, leave it overnight with the battery out to clear any transient glitches.
