Photos wont open

Ok, i recently went on a trip to San Diego and took tons of pictures and videos. Well i went to up0load them to my computer and all the videos wont open and a few of the pictures also. when i try to open the videos (in .Mov format) i get an error message saying its not a videos file so i downloaded tons of codecs and tried opening it with different programs and they still wont open. so i tried to view them on my camera and they work fine. when i try to open the photos they give me a similar error message saying its not a photo (.jpeg format). Im stumped! any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: 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.

My Olympus Tough-3000 will not upload the software the videos and pictures are on the hard drive but not the software

If your photos and videos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos and to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

I took lovelly photos on a recent trip, yet when I went to download the photos to my laptop there were NOT on the memory card. I have not accidently deleted all the photos as there are some old photos on...

SLR's don't have hard drives. Buy an inexpensive card reader to download your pictures to a folder you create on your desktop. See if that works.

Uploading video to computer from Kodak MX1063

Check the format of your video file, it may be hidden if it has different file extension for which your computer does not have the application to view.

Regarding your files got deleted, you might selected the option to move the files from your camera to your computer instead of copy the files.

Hope this helps.

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 !!!!!

PC will not recognize memory card

even though the card has video files on, this should not prevent you from seeing the still pictuers. Try and open my computer and open the removable drive to view the pictures.

Cracked screen

Didn't someone already take photos of San Diego? I swear I've seen it.

It depends on who has to fix it and how fast! Lindsey Lohan is fast, but charges a $1200 bench fee. You can check out HP Authorized Camera Repair for warrantee service but it's about as much as the camera price, from a $50 bench fee (pretty standard if it wasn't the Bay Area) to a part at an Official Price....

If you wanted to not fix it (and it works otherwise,) maybe you can get Gorilla Glue in there to passivate it so the black area doesn't spread quickly; put your subjects in the top/bottom/left/right third instead of dead on, so you can verify they weren't blinking etc. when you took the shot.

You might just be able to replace it with a workalike scrap unit or part off eBay or such; of course many people around you have disassembled a few digicams in their day and you can check out the MAKE community for hints on safe disassembly, if you can't just hang around in a camera repair shop 20min....

White streaks on all photos but not video

Your camera has a defective CCD imager. Please return the camera prepaid to Canon in New Jersey, they are replacing the CCD at no charge to the customer. This is a known issue and is resolved by many of the manufacturers using the Sony CCD element in their cameras at no charge. Good Luck my friend. Joe Weibel
