SANDISK Extreme 64GB CompactFlash Card

Suddenly, my Nikon D700 asks me to use another card as this card is defective. I have all files saved, so no images were lost. Is this an issue with the D700 or with the card or with both? Is the remedy to throw away my only card for the D700 and get a different one? Do you have a recommendation? Thanks.

When I tried to format the card in the camera, it did not do it. I then formatted the card from an external drive, and it got formatted, but the D700 does not like this card anymore.

Check the contacts carefully. Try cleaning with an electronic cleaner. I think I have a card I could send you if you want to try that.

Thanks a lot. What exactly is an electronic cleaner? Is it similar to a sensor cleaner?

Find out what the maximum size card Nikon recommends...I had a similar problem with my tablet and a 128GB SanDisk card...I originally had a 32GB card replaced it with the 128 card and started losing images...bought a 64GB card and everything is good now...
