Canon ixus 70 - "unidentified image"

When I changed the memory card, and i take pictures, and go into playback mode, its really slow and only displays the picture tiny with the words "unidentified image" how can i get it back to normal?

and yes it is an SD memory card...and im pretty sure i formatted it right in the camera...you just have to tick the box right?

    I've got a Canon Ixus 70 and it is now on it's 5th memory card .... it just chews them up at random intervals ..... Description on LCD is:Memory Card error ..... Card Locked.This, despite the fact that the tab is in the unlocked position. Card cannot be read by other cameras or even via a card reader on a PC.



    I don't trust Canon cameras anymore .... going to stick to Nikon.

    I've been having this problem, and according to the 'net, so have thousands of others. New camera, new 2GB SD card. It seems to be a "known issue", which angers and upsets me all the more! There is a suggested fix here:

    which basically involves removing the internal battery for a short time. But many say the error still returns. Heeeeeeellllp!

Occasionally the SD card will fail. To check this try a different card and see if you get the same result.

SOURCE: Unidentified Image

When a camera records a picture certain information is written in the image file. When you see it in another camera, the second camera reads the stored information and may be able to display the name the date and so on depending on the information stored.
However if someone sent you pictures attached to an e-mail message, they are often compressed and the information about the images may not be available. So, not fin ding the name of the image, the camera says unidentified image.

If you want you can rename them, but you will not be able to restore the meta information that was stripped off the image when it was sent by e-mail. Identified, or not the images are still viewable.

SOURCE: Sd card won't upload video- 'unidentified image' is displayed

iPhoto is for still pictures. iMovie is for videos. Use a card reader to download your videos to a folder you create on your desktop. From there, you can import to iMovie or just play them using Quicktime.

Unidentified image, image too large


Try formatting the memory card (or changing it). You probably have some bad sectors.

If this does not help, take the camera to a Canon dealer, it's probably a software problem

Hi,
If your Canon SD110 shows saved picture in memory card in playback mode but does not show live view in camera mode then it is problem of ccd imager chip failure, that will be replaced.
Canon offers free of cost replacement of ccd imager in SD110, click Canon CCD Imager Advisory for details.
Thanks.

Try using a card reader to download your pics. Also, go to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture maker machine. You should be able to see all of your pics and print them or even make a cd of them.

Try to see If you can see a photo in Playback mode from your memory card (Transfer a good photo to the card first) Do all the menus display correctly? If so it would seem the camera sensor (ccd) is bad. Canon had a recall on these models with bad sensors and will repair them free of charge.

You think you can try photo recovery software to see if you can rescue the lost photos or movies, 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 and videos are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the memory card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

This really sounds like a potential CCD failure. To confirm, take a picture while the screen is black, then download to your computer to see if the picture is also black.

If so, it is difficult for the average person to replace a CCD, and should only be done by an authorized Canon repair rep. If still under warranty, Canon will fix this for you for free. If not, recommend calling Canon anyways and complaining (this should not happen in such a recent model camera). If you complain, and possibly ask to speak to a supervisor, you just might get lucky.

I have the same problem with my Canon Powershot SX110IS. images dissapear with the notation "unidentified image". I brought my camera in to a local camera shop, and they were able to save the lost images. They told me I had an inexpensive, low quality memory card that is causing this problem. I upgraded to a high quality one and haven't had the problem since.
