Some times when I do a photo shoot, a few of the pictures won't transfer to my computer and I get a message that says "unrecognized file format". I don't understand why when I don't do anything but push the shutter buttom. I don't change any setting during the shoot. the pictures that are bad stays on my SD card but I can do anything with them but view them and delete them. I can't zoom in or transfer.

The memory card may have corrupted. You may need to try using recovery software to download your photos. Try the mac links provided in this article. Once you've recovered your photos, and backed them up on your computer, format your memory card in your camera, using your camera's format feature (look for it in the menus).
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.
Sounds like you're pulling out the card without using the "safely remove hardware" function. This corrupts the card. If your pics are safely on the computer, format the card in the camera to erase it and get it working properly again.
The camera stores the pictures in a JPEG format only. You can use .jpg files in most image editing programs. Videos are stored in a .mov format that you can view with QUICKTIME software or KODAK Picture Software.
* What you can do is transfer the pictures to your computer and check the file format
* You can delete photo then just take a photo again.
Unrecognized file format means the file format of the picture in the camera is not JPEG or the memory card is faulty
Honestly, try transferring the images to your computer without using the Easyshare software. This software has been causing some problems for some users. After you have the images on your computer...open them up and then save them as JPEGs. This should help fix the problem with the transferring.
