Question about Canon PowerShot SD870 IS Digital Camera

"incompatible jpeg image" message

I removed the memory card from my camera and inserted it into the memory card slot on my computer. After copying the pictures to a file on my computer, I reinserted the card into my camera. Later when showing the pictures in my camera to a friend, I discovered that after the first few pictures, which were okay, I started to get screens without a picture but with the message "incompatible jpeg image". Then I had a few pictures that were okay and then some more screens with the same message. I did nothing but copy the pictures to a file on my computer. What is wrong?

Unfortunately Windows in particular can mess with the contents of the card just by reading it - it creates a thumbnails file on the card without asking etc etc.
It shouldn't mess with the actual pictures unless you have rotated them or perhaps removed the card without safely removing the hardware first.
Try reformatting the card on the camera and you should be good to go from there.

How to transfer the photos from camera to computer?


I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing in transferring images from the Camera to the Computer. Once you connect the Camera to the computer, you will get the Camera as a removable drive under My Computer. You can open the removable drive to see the pictures stored in the Camera/Memory Card.


If the Operating System installed in your Computer still needs a driver, you may use the Memory Card slot on the Computer to transfer the pictures. Please follow the steps to transfer pictures using Memory Card Reader in the Computer:


- Remove the Memory Card from the Camera.

- Insert it in the Memory Card slot in the Computer.

- Open the pop up window or find out the removable drive under My Computer.

- Copy the required files to a folder in the Computer.


DCIM folder contains the images.


Note : Most of the Notebooks comes with its own Memory Card Slot. If it does not, you may get one from the market without much spending.


Thanks for understanding.


Please let me know if you need further assistance.

When I reloaded my memory card back into my Canon powershot SD 1000 the LCD came up saying Incompatible JPEG even though I have been using this memory card right along?


Did you maybe copy some jpegs onto the card from another source? If the contents of the memory card is no longer need, take the card back out and run a quick format through the computer

We have inserted sd-ms card onto our laptop to upload the photos onto FB.however the card when inserted back onto the camera, about 50 over images show, incompatible jpeg?how do we solve this issue?


The computer uses a small program to be able to upload pictures from the memory card once the pictures are safely on the computer hard drive hopefully you created a file folder for them then the memory card needs to be formatted in the camera. Formatting the memory card cleans the card and makes it compatible to the camera again. Every time you download images to the computer the memory needs formatting in the camera. Any new memory card needs formatting in the camera a card that has been formatted in the computer needs to be reformatted in the camera. Also please be aware that there is a protection lock on the side of the SD card and if placed in the incorrect orientation will actually lock the card from formatting or deleting files on the card. I'm going to include a diagram here to show you where this little switch need to be for the "unlock" position.

Switch needs to be towards the top of the card in the direction of the gold contacts

If you removed the card without using the "safely remove hardware" function and the PC was still accessing data on the card, it will corrupt the card.
