Question about Casio Exilim EX-S500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Ruined pictures after downloading them!

I have a Casio Exilim S500 digital camera and I took pictures with it all day. Tonight I wanted to download the pictures on the pc but the pc didn't "find" the camera card! Then finally my pc found it but said me that the device was not working correctly and that I had to format it. I downloaded the pictures but a 40% of them are all ruined (with colors everywhere, dark and bright sides, totally black...). I tried to eliminate them but it was not possible. What happened? What can I do? Is it a card problem?

[sorry for my English ...]

    But if I format the card I will lose all the picture, is it right? I just took off the card and took some pictures. Then I downloaded them on the computer and they were perfect! Does this mean that the card is the problem?
    I didn't have low battery and some photos (not all of them) are corrupted also watching them in the camera.
    Thank you for your help

    I formatted the card but now my computer doesn't "see" the card neither the camera (with no card in it) plugged into it!! So do I have to change card or to change camera (disaster!!)?
    Thank you

Try formatting the card and then take a few pictures with the camera. Then try uploading them to the computer and see how they turn out. If they turn out ok it probably was just a glitch and will not happen. Be aware that memory cards are sensitive to static discharge and magnetic forces. It is possible that the card is the problem and may need replacement. Also if your taking pictures with a digital camera and the battery power is very low it is possible that the photos were corrupted when they were transferred. And make sure if you are inserting the memory card into a slot on the computer that you de-activate in the task bar to "remove hardware safely" or you can corrupt the card.
