    Hi All.
    I have recently bought a Minolta 7i. I am very pleased with it, with
    exception to one thing. The camera is very lazy. When it has been on for a
    few minutes & i try to take a picture, sometimes it will work & other times
    the camera will just shutdown & display `err' on the display. After about 4
    seconds, the camera will come back on. A disturbing development is when
    switching the camera on straight to the play icon on the dial, it will say
    `cannot use this memory card', even though there are images on the card. It
    is a 256mb jessops own brand. I have checked the cd manual & the error
    message is described as being caused by the camera being too hot! (after 5
    minutes?) The camera is only 3 weeks old. It has firmware version 1.10e & I
    know that there is a update.
    Has anybody had a similar experience? is there a simple fix or is it a trip
    back to the shop with the camera?

    I had this TWICE, I took the both back and they gave me a new one. It does
    not get better. They said they had never heard of it but I have seen it
    talked about on the web a dozen times.

    Do you still have the camera? Does it still do this?

    I refused the repair option, but then again I got a second faulty one, maybe
    I should have repaired
