    I have a canon PowerShot A70 that I purchased new that I dropped
    several days after purchasing back in 2004. The camera has worked
    flawlessly up until a few weeks ago when it started with the faulty CCD
    symptoms. The camera is in very good condition with the exception of a
    small crack in the case and now I wonder if Canon will tell me that
    this issue is due to the camera being dropped and not with the faulty
    CCD. Anyone have any advise?

Deleting pictures from cybershot viewer


I had the same problem with my digital cam/corder! An alternative solution to deleting pictures off the camera is, trickily enough, through your computer! This may be a bit of a hassle as you have preloaded your pics. What you will need to do is redownload your pics. You should be asked the option of deleting your pictures after download, and you click on the box.

PC won't recognize camera as drive

in order to make the corrupted card usable again, try to rename the directory, copy an original directory from a card that's ok. So, at least, the card can be read again by the camera (and re-formatted). Doesn't guarantee that the next pictures might be seen...
