Take off what pictures you can. Put the card in the camera and format it. Everything will be erased but, the entire card will be formatted to suite your camera.

You may try to scan the memory card with this photo recovery software and then recover your photos.

Use a card reader to connect your card with the computer, as long as it can be detected by your computer, you can try some photo recovery software to rescue the files on your camera card, here are some you may rely on. Both programs can also recover videos and music.
Photo Recovery Software (for Windows)
Mac Photo Recovery Software (for Mac OS X)

Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

"File contains no image data"


Try a new SD card. SD cards do fail.
The socket inside the camera maybe no good - bad connections.
The camera may have liquid damage - this causes all kinds of weird issues.
I try the cards in my computer reader. If they can be used all day there (I load and unload stuff randomly all day to test and then put the card in a drawer for a few days and check what I loaded later), the fault is likely the camera.

How do you get pictures out of internal memeory onto memory card?


Press the Review button, then press the Menu button. Use up/down to highlight "Copy", then press OK. Select the desired options then press OK. Note that this copies, not moves. If you want to remove the originals, you have to delete them.

If you want to change where the pictures are stored, select "Image Storage" from the Setup menu.

Picture on viewer fine..transfer to computer divided


It sounds like the file is corrupted. Try formatting the memory card in the camera. This will wipe the memory card clean and eliminate it from the being the problem. Formatting the memory is erase the memory card and you willnot be able to get the pictures off it after you format it, so make sure you down load all you the pictures you want befor formatting the card. Then occasionallly after downloading everything, format the card on a regular basis. This will help to keep the cards internal memeory from being fragmented. If formatting does not fix the problem, try another card (format it before use) if this does not fix it, take it to a local camera store and let them trouble shoot the problem or send the camera off for repair.

Lots of file errors, O also now can't copy files off, says i/o device error


try using a memory card with 2GB or below
the camera might be having some problems reading the 4GB that you have

if you connect the camera to your computer and file error still appears that means that the memory card is corrupted and you really need to format it

before you do make sure that you have a copy of the files saved in the memory card

*formatting the memory card will delete all the files saved in it

go to MENU> SET UP > FORMAT

Decode error! JPEG datastream contains no image.


Kodak has software that should be able to make sure those pictures are in JPEG format. Id use that at first instead of a third party program. Picture It! does some funny things to pictures and Microsoft discontinued that product line several years ago.

Here is a link to download it

There is a firmware upgrade too on this page. You should install that into your camera as well.

File error


First off... let's make sure you are doing one thing correctly. After you take a picture, it writes the information to your memory card. Make sure you allow it to complete that process _before_ you change and dial settings, go into the menu, or try to review it. If you interrupt it while it is writing to the card, the image will often become corrupt and give you the file error message. Next, I want you to format the card. Use your manual to find out the correct steps to follow. But be aware that it will remove all the information and photos from the card. It essentially erases the card so it looks empty and brand new to the camera. If the problem persists, you more than likely have a bad card. If it's still under warranty, try to return it. Otherwise, you may have to purchase a new one. Thanks in advance for reviewing me.
