Question about Canon PowerShot S51S Digital Camera
My Canon Power Shot S51S will download to my computer all pictures and all of my movie files OK. But one movie file it will not download even though I can watch it on the camera. My computer comes up with the message that it cannot obtain files from this device. Any ideas?
This is not so much a solution as a comment: It is common and most likely that you can not 'do' anything with that file because it has become corrupt.
As I said, files on removable media becoming corrupt is not uncommon, actually, quite common. Simple things can cause it, turning off the camera before all the file information has been written, the camera sustained a heavy bump which may have temporarily interupted power supply or contact to the card which interupted writing.
I'm not familiar with any recovery software for videos on those cards but there may be some. If you delete moved files off the camera, leave that one on there in case we can recover the video.
As for the moment, I think that file is lost.
