Bought a A70. It was in a sealed plastic bag. Did not think twice and\ninsert a compact flash card. I have another digital camera for 4 years that\nuses compact flash and I have several readers. I don't believe I insert the\ncard incorrectly. Anyway, you cannot insert it in the other direction. The\ncamera said no memory card installed. Took the card out and found several\npins were bent. Tried to fix them now two of them were broken.\n\nI do not even have a chance to take a picture with it. The carmera was in a\nsealed bag. I just assumed it must be in perfect condition and did not\ncheck to see if the pins were crooked before inserting the card. Anybody\nhad similar problem before? I wonder how much they are going to charge me\nto have it fixed.
