Question about Kodak EasyShare One Digital Camera

"Unrecognized file format" error message

I've just returned from a trip and while there, I've encountered the error message, unrecognized file format, on the screen from my v550 Kodak camera. I couldn't review the image but the camera continue to take the pictures as normal, I just could not review them. Getting home I've tried to viewing them but I can't. I don't use the supplied docking station, I just remove the memory card and plop it directly to my PC. The files are there, they are reading as the standard jpeg file, but when I try to open it, I get an message from 'not a valid file'. I've tried using MS paint, Illustrator, photoshop and other image readers.....NO LUCK. I've even have gone as far as uploading them to photobucket and still get an error message. I know the file/picture/jpeg is valid but I just can't seem to open them. SO I really don't want lose these pics so: 1) Can I restore/repair the file with a program? 2) Has anyone else encountered this problem and if so what is the solution for fixing the pictures that were taken? 3) Any and all help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you !!

    Odd set of changing circumstances...truly puzzled by them all. Pictures taken and they showed fine on the camera, downloaded on to the PC and were fine at first, then I got a message saying that the format not understood...checked format all pictures now show as JPC formatnot JPEG... and cannot be read by computer. I checked and the extension on all the picture files is JPC (if I remember correctly....and that stands for Japan Picture ..? Now pictures cannot be opened and may be corrupted beyond opening.

    Can this camera not be used in North America with our PCs?





    Thought the memory card was at fault...still have the old one... hoping to get the pix off it. Bought a new memory card, took more holiday pictures; seemed fine, and this time we took them to the cruise ship photo lab to have them made into a disc. Pix seemed fine on their computer,vieweed well, but once the disc was made we have half pictures, no pictures, etc.



    Took camera to a shop where they installed their memory card into camera and they took a picture....it didn't show up on their memory card AT ALL! Obviously camera not reading to memory card. The odds of two memory cards being faulty is too impossible.



    Have had camera for just over a year, used it on two vacations only...both all pictures are ruined. What gives? Is this camera ruined?

    i am trying to take pics from my computer and put them on a SD card. Two of the pics so far have come up with "unrecognized file format" when i try to look at the pics from the SD card, but they are recognized on my computer. one of the pics is one i actually took with my kodak camera and the other one i scanned in. they are all jpegs and i don't understand what i need to do to get all my pics to the SD card successfully.

    Took about 20 pics of my daughter on Thanksgiving got home to take the pics off and 8 of them would not show up. I can see them in the camera but they are not being recognized and will not open (in Konqueror). Tried to open with The Gimp and it gave me error messages saying the following: Corrupt JPEG data: 29 extraneous bytes before marker 0xc4

    EXIF data will be ignored.:

    Where are my pics?

    I have "lost" almost 400 pictures that obviously cannot be replaced. They were there, reviewed fine and suddenly my camera "froze." I had to remove the batteries to get the camera to come back on. Then the everything read, unrecognized format.

    I was taking pictures and it was showing but when i went to review them it stated unrecognized file format. Have i lost my pictures?

  • souldad Dec 10, 2008

    With a Kodak Z1012 IS I've seen this come and go. Sometimes the camera says the files are unrecognizable, but then when I transfer them using Kodak EasyShare to Mac, they show up fine.

    It seems to primarily happen with videos, although I do a lot of both pictures and videos.

Images can error for a number of reasons not all of which are understood Go to www.konvar.com and download PC INSPECTOR This program will rescue most images if any thing can. You may get the odd half picture, and if you are luck it may be only one or two dud images blocking access to the remaind

SOURCE: Mac says Jpeg files are "unrecognized format"

The memory card may have corrupted. You may need to try using recovery software to download your photos. Try the mac links provided in this article. Once you've recovered your photos, and backed them up on your computer, format your memory card in your camera, using your camera's format feature (look for it in the menus).

When videos are spliced, multiple audio and video tracks are needed. Kodak EasyShare digital cameras can handle only one video and one audio track at a time. Use the Apple QuickTime player to view spliced videos.

SOURCE: Unrecognized file format need to fix photos

Well that is an odd situation if the card recovery programs won't work. My solution is a card recovery program.

I found a program that really assisted me and was free was Zero Assumption Recovery the website is:
http://www.z-a-recovery.com/digital-image-recovery.htm

You do have to download the program, and I think you have to have a memory card reader on your computer, but it recovered most of the pictures that I had lost when my camera listed my pictures as unrecognized file format. I hope this helps.

Message "unrecognized file format"


Is the error message appearing on the caemra or the computer?

I will in both cases recommend to format the SD card and to update your firmware.

Format your SD card. NOTE this will delete all existing data on your SD card.
Do the following:
  1. Insert the memory card into the camera. Make sure the card is firmly seated (push in the card until it clicks into place).
  2. Turn on the camera.
  3. Press the Menu button, then go to the Setup Menu.
Scroll up or down to the Format option, then press the OK button

Instructions to uploading new firmware:
Connect the camera with the computer.
Turn the camera on.
Click onto the link and follow the instructions.

Unrecognized file format


Honestly, try transferring the images to your computer without using the Easyshare software. This software has been causing some problems for some users. After you have the images on your computer...open them up and then save them as JPEGs. This should help fix the problem with the transferring.
