While copying the files it shows that it requires more time to copy, and then you keep the process running and go somewhere else.

This error may occur due to power failure or improper shutting down of the computer. This may cause corruption of memory card and the data on the memory card may become inaccessible.

The data loss can occur due to corruption of CF card. The reason behind CF card corruption is the interruption of the read-write process. The read process is used to view the images or open the files from the CF card. The write process is used to save the media files such as images, songs and videos onto the CF card.

  • Switching off the devices like camera or cell phone while files are being written to the CF card.
  • Removing the card from a card reader or camera while data is being transferred or a file is open on the device.
  • Performing actions on the media files stored in the CF card, when they are opened on the computer.
