In general this isn't a problem, though in some cases it may cause one camera or the other to alter its numbering sequence. The 1-series Canons have a unique filename prefix for each body so overwiting one camera's images with another's is just about impossible. I'd say try reading the card in a different computer, and Google PhotoRescue.

Thanks fpr tje responses.  I got a call today from my friend, who said the problem fixed itself--sort of.

Apparently, the second camera put the images into a new folder on the card, which is why he could not find the first set of images.

Thanks again.

Can a cf card start on one camera, expose several images, and then be put into another camera without overwritng or losing the original images.

A friend called with this dilemma: A card was started on a Nikon D70 but then given to another photographer who was using a Nikon D70S. He can see on the LCD of the D70s any of the images he shot but not find the ones started on the D70. Furthermore, his mac computer tells him there are no images (at all) on the card. He assured me that the card was not reformatted when iit was switched. I'm unfamilar with the nikon dslrs and what might cause such confusion.

I'm a Canon user, and I tried a similar scenario with my 20D and my 10D and a lexar 1G card. I had 100 images already still on my card, taken with my 20D. I put it into my 10D and took 7 more. I had no problem loading all 107 onto my pc. Using breezebrowser, I have all the images and the info concerning which camera shot which images. IN FACT, the card numbered them sequentially, the last 20D image being 5781 and the first 10D image being 5782.

So, who has had similar experiences and can offer suggestions? My friend and I would like to salvage the images from both photographers (d70 and D70s)

As i said, I am unfamilar with the finer points of Nikon dslrs, but I know some of you out there use them, and your help is much appreciated.

Thanks again,
Pete

I would say : when changing CF card from one camera to another, do create a new directory on the second camera and put the new pictures in there. Also try to read the CF card with a card reader rather than directly from the camera, you may find back all of your pictures.

What happened to me : took an old CF card out of my Nikon Coolpix 990 and put it into my new Minolta 7D. No problem at all : I could even see the Nikon pictures on the screen of the Minolta (they were tiny, though, and not zoomable).

Of course, as I was using 2 different camera makes, they each created their own directory and kept all pictures nicely separated.
