    To Marc

    Try to reformat the card to FAT from computer instead of on a camera, and then try it again.

    Thanks Kelvin, but I've already been led through that process by your support staff. What we finally came up with is that some Delkin cards (not all) use a controller that's not supported by the 1st generation ColorSpace. Delkin very generously swapped me for a different (and faster!) card, and things are now working correctly. According to your engineers, the problem does not exist with the 2nd generation ColorSpace, so no efforts will be made to fix it for the older generation (not really possible to swap out the chip set, which would be the way to fix it).

    Hi Marc.The second generation of UDMA (UDMA2) is equipped with better chip set  and it works fine with the Delkin card.

    Yes, that's what I wrote, Kelvin. Only I called it "the 2nd generation ColorSpace." I think it's properly called the ColorSpace UDMA. Unfortunately, I don't have the luxury of upgrading for the sake of being able to read every card on the market. My 1st generation ColorSpace UDMA is still running strong and is filling its 3rd 500GB hard drive. By the way, the Card Recovery utility in the ColorSpace has saved my butt when 3rd-party software was useless.
