I bought a 512 meg Fuji xD on eBay, used it successfully for a few months while travelling and then the worst happened...

While out and about in Spain after a day of siteseeing and photo taking, with a load of around 300 shots, the camera suddenly stopped recognising the card and acted as though it had no card in it, black screen, flashing red side light and refused to be turned off.

At first I thought the camera was fd, but when I finally thought to check the card I carefully extracted it to find a slight crack on the plastic sticker on the back of the card, adjacent to the metal strips. There was no visible damage to the metal bits at all.

I have since lifted the sticker and replaced with a bit of carefully trimmed electrical tape but to no avail.

Can anyone help? - all my photos of Morocco and Grenada are on there!
