"Image not recorded" message

Hello, everybody.

I had a weird problem with my K100D. I was taking pictures in continuous shot mode (if it matters, I was using my 35 MM/2.0 KA lens and was using the shade white balance setting indoors; my memory card is a Kingston 2GM/50X eline pro SD card).

After firing off a burst of 3-4 shots, the last shot would appear on the LCD screen and the red "I'm thinking" light would illuminate for a few seconds. Then the image would disappear and the words "image not recorded" would appear on screen.

The error didn't appear if I took one picture at a time.

What's that all about?

I appreciate your help

Could be the memory card. Friend loaned me a messed up Transcend 4g to try. When putting it in camera said not formatted. Formatted it and shot test images. Turned off for a few seconds then back on. Images were fine. Reviewed a bunch in camera and enlarged them on screen - scrolling around. Deleted a few. Turned camera off about 2 min. When turning back on got your message. Camera can't play them back. Next morning don't even get that message. Now it says card isn't formatted.
I have 2 other Transcend 4g cards so that isn't a problem with K10D. Seems like the card looses the ability to remember what is going on. Try another card. Send it too company for replacement.

My 2 GB Kingston card worked for fine for quite some time in my K100D and one day I had an image not stored error. No problems after reformatting card in camera. Ken.
