D200 not recording images on CF card
I have reformatted and changed CF cards numerous times without success.
Prior to reading on pc, which was this same day-pictures were fine I am at a loss, as this has never happened before. Any D200 masters out there run me thru my errors? Thanks in advance.

Since the problem is with multiple cards, this suggests that the camera has a fault.
However, just to be sure, put a card in a card reader and do a deep format from the computer. Then put the card in the camera and quick format it there. If it still fails, it is the camera that has a problem.

Have the cards ever worked?
The D200 cannot take large CF cards that work on other cameras.
There are a lot of counterfeit cards. Are your cards from a legitimate source.
It's possible you have a bent pin. Take a flashlight and look inside the card slot to be sure all pins are okay.

What others have said, plus: Are you actually hearing the shutter fire? Does the camera go beep and click? Or perhaps there is an error message? Troubleshooting starts on page 189 of my manual.
