SD Card Problem


New Member
Hi guys,

I recently purchased a D80 with a 70-300 AFS-VR, intermittentlt the error msg "CHR" is showing which is Card Error. I am using SanDisk Ultra II 2 GB. Though I didnt have the oppertunity to use another card, am worried whether its a camera problem or not. I have to format the card and then i can take pictures again. This problem again is intermittent. Is there any way we can identify spurious cards from the original ones (particularly Sandisk)as here spurious cards are a srious issue.

I have been using mostly SanDisk Ultra II 2GB cards, so far I don't have a problem. I had bought SanDisk Ultra II 4GB card at ebay which I later found out to be fake ones though. the ebay one was much slower than the Sandisk but it can still be read. Disregard this if you bought the card at a respectable US dealer.

I'm using Lexar Professional 2GB (bought with the camara) and recently a 4GB Mini SD HD from Integral.

I bought this one for my son's cell phone but the phone doesn't support 4GB. It comes with an adaptor for digital camaras, so I tried it out on the D80 and it works fine.
