    I have one Canon Mf motor drive and one Nikon MD-4 motor drive, from ebay which when filled with new batteries remain dead.
    Where is the best place to get them checked.

    First questions, first.

    Were they listed as "working"?

    If so, you have a right to get a refund.

    Both were listed as working.
    I just sent a note to one yesterday but the other I sent off a note two days ago and have received nothing.
    So we will see.
    Thanks for making check my options.

    PS--On a camera I was thinking of bidding with a listing of every thing works, I asked what battery was in it and how old it was; she said they did not have battery for the camera.

    Did you pay by PayPal? If so, the payment protection scheme will ensure you get your money back.

    Yes I did use paypal for the two doa items, for once I am glad I used it as long as I did.

    Addendum in the As the World Churns: I was bidding on just the grip for a MF motor drive, now it may not be related but I sent the seller a note on what should happen if filled with batteries if it works.
    Today the item has had all bids cancelled and been pulled.
