Can't find pictures I took, but camera counts down the number of pictures left
In playback mode the camera says there are no files in the folder, but if I keep taking pictures, the camera will continue to count down the number of shots left.
(FYI: The battery is attached properly and camera is powered)

every card you put in a card reader should be visible on your computer. You should be able to download the pictures from the card to the computer. If you can't see the pictures on the computer, perhaps you pressed the key symbol with every picture, or you made them read only in the camera menu.
To remove protection from all images in the folder or folders currently selected in the Playback folder menu, press the AE-L AF-L and bin buttons together for about two seconds during playback.
So no pictures in the folders are protected anymore.
Also check you did not put the lock switch in the down position (LOCK) The switch on the left should be like on the 64GB card.
Not like the 32 GB card.
Thanks very much for responding to my problem. It seems Canon will not allow edited pictures or video to transfer from PC to their digital cameras for viewing. steps to my problem:1. my canon SX230 created all the parts for my WMV video in MOV format originally. 2. created a movie (WMV format) in Windows Live Movie Maker. Works well and plays on my PC (windows 7). 3. after WMV completed - converted to HD MOV format in 2 different file convert programs and with 2 different HD MOV resolution settings on Both programs. WMV resolution is 1920x1080 (HD). ALL 4 MOV videos play well on my PC in 2 different programs.
Steps getting Canon to see video in playback mode.1. copy MOV video from PC to Flash drive in my card reader in same folder as my original JPG & MOV files, then inserted into camera - does not recognize file. 2. copy MOV file from PC to camera with USB cable. Windows error message. Wrong format - would not copy. 3. Formatted flash drive in camera. Took picture to create DCIM folder, JPG image, and CANONMSC folder with M0104.CTG file .Deleted CANONMSC folder. Copied my MOV video from PC to camera (USB cable). this time copy successful. However camera does nor recognize file. 5. tried again except deleted M0104.CTG file but not the CANONMSC folder. no luck. It seems Canon will not recognize any file that has not originated in the camera AND has not been altered. Upon researching answers on the NET - many other users of Canon cameras have the same problem with no luck.

First, are you trying to view the photos on your camera, or is this after you've downloaded them onto your computer?
I took a look at my Cyber-Shot and it looks like it sorts photos strictly by the numbering sequence, not by date. I couldn't find a way to prioritize it to view by date in the playback menus either. Have you tried viewing them in index mode? You can do this by pushing the "Home" button while in playback mode. From there you can pick either single, index or slide show mode. If you have already tried this, do the photos still show up out of sequence?
If you are trying to view your photos on your computer, it's a simple fix, and it's only slightly different from Mac to PC. When you have the folder open containing all the photo files, simply click on the field at the top of the columns that you want to view them by, i.e., "file size", "file type", "date modified", etc.
You have the camera in Highlights mode.. while in playback use the up,down,right,left pad press it up and it will go through different displays like what settings you had the camera in when you took the picture then there is a graph screen... after that one is the highlights display which is what you have it on. Push up one more time to have it on regular playback mode. The manual explains this much better than I just did. If you have the manual you should check it out if my instructions dont help.
This is due to problem with the memory card. Back up all taken pictures. format the memory card with PC or camera itself and restart the camera. check if there is a problem. if there is a problem, ensure that if is free from dust or humidity.
There may be problem with camera software. Better is to take it to a camera hardware engineer.
The file size of a picture depends on the resolution you choose and the complexity of the scene. A picture of blue sky has a smaller file size than a picture of autumn leaves. If the Pictures Remaining number does not change when you take a picture, it generally means that the picture does not take up sufficient memory to decrease the number. This is normal. The number is not a count of consecutive pictures; it is counting available space - the approximate number of pictures remaining.
