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.

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

How to upload photo


Transferring images from a Memory Card to a Windows Computer Follow the steps below to transfer images from a memory card to a computer running Windows. Step one: Insert the memory card Follow the steps below to insert the memory card into the HP All-in-One.
  1. Turn the memory card so that the label faces left, and the contacts are facing your HP All-in-One.
  2. Insert the memory card into the appropriate slot on the HP All-in-One.
    NOTE: Some portable USB flash drives with a read-only partition, such as U3 smart drives, might be incompatible with the front mass-storage port on your HP All-in-One. These read-only partitions are added by the drive manufacturer and may include utilities and other software. Refer to the manufacturer for additional details about your drive. When the memory card is inserted correctly, the Photo light next to the memory card slots begins to blink. The message Reading... appears on the color graphics display. The status light next to the memory card slots blinks green when the card is being accessed. If a memory card is inserted incorrectly, the status light next to the memory card slots blinks amber and the color graphics display shows an error message such as Card is in backwards or Card is not fully inserted. CAUTION: Never attempt to remove a memory card while it is being accessed. Doing so can damage files on the card. Safely remove a card only when the status light next to the slots is not blinking.
Step two: Transfer images without using the HP Photosmart software After inserting the memory card into the HP All-in-One, the memory card appears as a drive on the computer. Follow the steps below to transfer the images on the memory card to the computer.
  1. Press the Photo button to display the Photo menu.
  2. Press the down arrow button (c01133817.jpg ) to select Transfer to computer .
  3. Follow the prompts on the computer to complete the transfer of images.
    NOTE: If there are photo files on the memory card that have never been transferred before, a dialog box on the computer asks whether you want to save the photo files to the computer. Click the Transfer option and all the new photos from the memory card are saved to the computer.By default, the image files are saved in month and year folders depending on when the photos were taken. The folders are created under the C:\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Pictures folder.

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.

Sounds like you are not tackling this the right way.

The proper way is to connect your camera using a USB to mini-D connector direct to the laptop. Use the Import facility to transfer the images to a folder.

Failing that, you don't Copy and Paste, you Right Click Drag.

Insert the SD Card into the laptop slot or a Card Reader to USB. Open File Explorer. Click on the SD card at the bottom of the left hand pane. Highlight the images you want in the right pane, either individually, or multiple (hold down CTRL key, click each one, or hold down SHIFT key, click beginning of block and then end of block of images). Now the clever stuff, Right Click and Drag the images to the folder on the left of the two panes, release the Right Click and choose Copy Here, or Move Here.

I would transfer all the images to your laptop, Format the SD Card in the Camera, and then transfer any images back to the camera if you need, but really, the SD card should be for capturing the images and the computer hard drive for storage, plus backups to Memory Sticks or External Hard Drive.

You can also try using Windows to Repair the Drive (SD Card). Right Click on the SD Card, Properties, Tools, Check for Errors.
