    PC with XP is used to run photo editors. Viewing with card reader does not present solution to editing problem. Photos were taken with landscape setting. Previous photos on card are readable, only today's batch are unreadible.

    Camera is a Canon A720. Photo files are JFIF-JPEG, with typical file name IMG_xxxx.JPG.
    All photos are on same SD card (which I do not have - friend's camera). SD card may be bad?

Hi,

Have you tried file recovery programs? You can try demo version of GetDataBack. Thereafter, a format of the memory card may be needed if not a replacement.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

If all the pictures youve taken from the previous camera are on the same memory card including the pictures that is not readable then the problem was not on the memory card itself, its on pictures that youve transfered. try using adobe photoshop for editing pictures and uploading to your computer.

  • like ginko said use card reader for your sd memory card
  • its should be readable because it was came from the same camera and captured
  • try to look also the resolution and the properties of the picture
  • take a picture sample and see if its read on the computer
  • all or nothing format the sd card before you insert it on the camera
thank you for using fixya

If the previous ones were also taken in landscape then there shouldn't be a problem unless your photo card is full then the last pictures will lose pixelation to those last pitures which then the program will have a problem reading them with distorted pixelation

What is the model of your camera? Also, are all the pictures stored in the sdcard? if so. plug it into your computers card reader, in your computer open the sd card, what is the file name of the files? what does it end in? is it a picture like JPG or similiar or something like RAW?

Posted on Oct 27, 2008

  • Ekse Oct 27, 2008

    Im not sure if you can see this message anymore?



    The card would need to get tested to see if its faulty or what the problem really is.. you should be able to open those files right up with whatever windows tool you have. if they don't open then I would get the card tested. Im not sure, your problem sounds odd.



    I would suggest to take it to a camera professional, any camera dealer can test the card, or any computer tech/shop. I could have look over the internet even? Remote support intrested?

Try using a card reader to view pictures.

What computer do you use?

Posted on Oct 27, 2008

    Ginko Oct 27, 2008

    Try using a card reader like this one to transfer your pictures into the computer: Compact USB Card Reader.

    Also check the format of the files you are saving , if they are in raw format, the computer software won't read them, in this case change camera settings to save them in Jpeg.

    If they are already in Jpeg format, the computer should read them.

    If pictures are stored on a bad SD card, then usually you cannot even transfer the files. Try a replacement SD card a, and try transferring pictures onto a different computer and see what happens.

I shot some photos with no memory card installed, i can view the photos on the camera when the card is not in the camera but i can't upload to my computer, is this possible??


You have two options. If you normally transfer your photos by connecting your camera to your computer, remove the memory card before making the connection. This will allow the computer to see the photos in the camera's internal memory.

If you normally transfer your photos by putting the memory card into a card reader, use the Backup command in the Settings-1 menu to transfer the photos from the camera's internal memory to the memory card, then transfer the photos from the card to the computer as normal.

Took some photos without memory card. The photos are in the camera's memory, how can I transfer those photos into a memory card?


There are some solutions, but the most easy one is:

1. Take the SD card out of the camera and connect it to the pc to transfer the images. After that, put the SD card back into the camera.

2. There is a menu option in the SP800uz to change the memory to Intern, Extern (SD) and Auto (default). Change it temporary to Intern, connect the camera to the PC and transfer the images. Set the setting back to Auto (or else) afterwards.

I have a Eos Digital and was trying to view my photos on the computer by using my USB and was only able to access and view half of the photos b/c a message corrupted files flashed on. Please Help. I want...


If the files themselves are actually corrupted, there is not a way to fix them-- if instead there was some sort of error with the transfer of information between the camera and computer, then this is something that you can troubleshoot.
Your best bet would be to remove the SD card from the camera, (this is accessible from the door on the bottom of the camera) and use a regular SD card reader (something you can pick up at your local camera shop, or even at Walmart) to view the files on the card. This removes the camera from the equation, in the event that there is something wrong with it.
If you attempt to transfer the files when using just a regular SD card reader, and the transfer fails or your computer indicates that the files are corrupted, then you may need to resort to either a professional data recovery service (which may be offered by a local camera shop), or you may just not be able to recover the files in their entirety.

Settings for date and time on the camera


By default Olympus cameras do not print or show the date on the images when they are downloaded to a PC. Olympus does not include this functionality because they feel that it detracts from image quality. There is a function of the camera called print order that you can set that it will print the date on the images but this is only if you take the card to a photo processing store. However if you use the Olympus Master software and print the images that you have previously transferred there is a check box in the print setting window that you can add the date and or time to the printed image.
However the computer will only show the date information as part of the photo properties.

Olympus camera fe 240


You can transfer the photos directly from the camera to the PC using the USB cable that came with the camera. You don't need to transfer the pics to memory card first.

Connect the cable to the camera and the PC. Turn on the camera and your PC will recognise it as an external storage device. Use the PC's software to transfer the photos from camera to PC.

Once you have the pics on the PC you can use the Olympus Master software included with the camera to edit and archive the photos on the PC.

Cannot View Uploaded File


try opening the photos with any other viewing software you have - paint, windows picture and fax viewer to name but 2. If you get the same results then the files are probably corrupt, and the probability is that your memory card could be causing the problem, try another card and see if pictures you take can be viewed. Try uninstalling and reinstalling the camera and the olympus software, it just might help. If this doesn't work please post again and we could give you some info on software for recovering corrupt and deleted files. Hope this helps :)
