The Canon 50D digital camera has a number of features that make it one of the most widely used cameras in the world of digital cameras. However, there are instances when one encounters different erroneous situations much to the discomfort of the user. If you are using these cameras then you must have encountered the Canon 50d cannot format card situation when you cannot format the card even after repeated attempts.
If both the camera as well as the card are new then there must be some sort of hardware problem giving rise to the Canon 50d cannot format card issue. You can also go to the retailer to get the problem fixed.
The problem could also be the result of the inability of the image data to be written on the CF card. When the CF card has not been fully seated in your Canon digital camera or if the camera cannot detect the card-read signal within the specified time limit one can encounter the canon 50d cannot format card issue. You can replace the camera with a new CF card and see if the error is the result of any issues with the camera or with the card.
However, the problem could also be the result of corruption or physical damage to the CF card. It can easily get corrupt due to several reasons like using the camera when it is displaying the low battery signal, interruption in the read /write process, extracting the memory card when the read/ write process is still in progress, formatting the card outside the camera, etc.
To get rid of the problem recharge the battery. Check to see if the CF card has been properly inserted or not. However, if it is not fixed then you would lose the entire data stored on the card. Even if you get rid of the problem and can now format the card, you would lose the entire data stored on the card. In such a situation you can make use of an efficient third party photo recovery software that can recover the entire lost and inaccessible from the camera.
