    Right after I take the picture I can see the picture and it appears to have been saved. However, when I go back through to view the pictures shortly after, or try to download it, the screen is black with a red stripe through the middle with the message "file cannot be played".

    Thanks! I'll do it (I was thinking to myself it must be something with the memory card).

  • bunchobingha Oct 17, 2008

    I reformatted the memory card and took more pictures........the same thing happened with 5 out of the 20 pictures we took. We point and shoot, it appears the photo has been saved then when we upload or play it back I get a black screen with the message "file cannot be played". On the computer it uploads where the picture should be and says it has an unrecognizable format. Is there any way to try to get it to restore the picture that was there and eliminate that message? Is it the memory card itself or could there be a problem with the camera? (It is less than 3 months old). Let me know if you have any suggestions....I'm saddened by the loss of some of my pictures. ;o(

Why does "this picture cannot be played" appear when I try to view my photos?


Most of the time this message is displayed, when the file is corrupted, or when no file at all is on the memory card.

When looking back at photos taken, the camera freezes and flashes up 'file error'. I have tried browsing slowly as well as quickly and it still happens, it is really infuriating!


The LCD screen of the Camera may display a FILE ERROR message when trying to view a still image on the Camera if the image was rotated, modified and overwritten using editing software on a Computer.

To play images you have taken on the Camera, it is recommended that you do not make any changes to the original image files.

I have a DSC T70. Sometimes i get a message "File Error" for some of the pictures. For these pictures, the file does not show and when printed, the picture is merged with another picture.

'File error' message on samsung L200 camera when viewing a photo


Possible solution:

I had/have the same problem using L200 and SDHC memory card, called Samsung. Can't view certain pictures on camera or computer, camera freezes when viewing those certain pictures, green light flashing.

Samsung support told me that I needed to copy my (good) pictures to a computer first because a memory format will erase everything. Then format (menu->settings->format->yes) my memory card. Tried this just now and took some new pictures, so far so good.

File errors


http://www.samsungcamera.com/popup/download.asp?prj_uid=741&prol_uid=4153
Download the english manual version pdf file and open with adobe reader go to page 84.
When you upload a file that is not taken by this camera to the removable disk, the [File Error!] message will be displayed on the LCD monitor in the play mode, and nothing is displayed in the THUMBNAIL mode.

Make sure that the memory card is formated in the camera not the memory card reader on the computer. Make sure you save your edited files in jpeg file format. Avi for movies. The manual makes it sound like the camera will not read altered files or files not taken by the camera itself. edited files are not files taken by the camera. Good luck I hope this helps.
Please rate me.

Pictures Readable on Camera, but NOT on computer


I found the solution to the problem. Connect the camera with the cord supplied. Do not open Finepix. Open Photoshop if you have it and go to file>import>via f31 or f30 and choose the pictures you want to import. Done !!!!!

Pictures cannot be download


When you try to transfer a large number of files (or a single large file) from a PTP (Picture Transfer Protocol) device, such as a Sony Memory Stick, you may receive an error message saying that your computer cannot detect your camera or that, although it has detected the camera, the current picture cannot be copied. This happens because in older versions of WinXP the PTP driver limits file transfer to 2,048 files at one time and those files must be less than 210MB. If you update WinXP with Microsoft's latest service pack you should eliminate the problem.

Olympus 770 not able to move photos from xd card to laptop error message every time


A couple of questions :

What happens when you use "Windows Explorer" to view the contents of the card .
It should appear as just another disk drive in the list .

Are you able to view the contents of the card when you plug the camera into the usb port ?

Photos wont open


There seems to be a corruption of file type between camera and computer The fact that the computer wont play mov. but the camera will if back loaded seems odd. JPEG files can and do go wonky if back loaded to camera after editing because essential info for the camera has been deleted. A JPEG file as produced by a camera is properly called an EXIF file because has has EXtendedINformation. Lose it and the camera wont know it. Like wise older PC's such Win 98 and older software don't know about EXIF so they chop it off So something like that is happening here. Check out Tech Support at Kodak see what they can tell you.
