I can only suggest you format the card, downside you wipe any data, upside is you may get the card back? I had this occassionally when I deleted lots of pictures from the cards but always got them working again.

good luck

On my camera you press the menu button then go to shooting menu and scroll down until you get to CF card Format, I hope this helps and you get your card working again

This is not an uncommon event - the format may only work for a short while - I should start thinking about returning it under warranty. I had a Kingston fail they replaced within a week. They are based near Heathrow.
