CHDK ate my SD card ?

Been using since June:

Worked better than earlier version from March.

However last week while the DNG file was writing the LCD went blank. On re-start "card error" message appeared. Camera works with other cards but card in use works in no other cameras nor PC or MAC.

Have not tried DOS - any other ideas?

extremely unlikely that CHDK can physically damage your card. At worst, it could corrupt the filesystem, which will be fixed if you reformat the card.

If the card cannot be formatted, it is likely that it just failed, and the use of CHDK is unrelated.
Don't forget what the H stands for.
