Question about Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

Open Question

Unidentified images or corrupt data on my flash card

I have a Canon Redbel XTi, 2 years old. Ever since I've had it, I've had this problem. I've changed flash cards and recently had the camera sent to Canon, where they supposedly repaired it. I bought a new flash card and have taken 50 pictures since I got it back. In scrolling through my pictures today, I found 1 unidentified image and 6 corrupt data. No one seems to know what the problem is. The store where I bought the camera says the only thing they know to do is to send the camera back to Canon to be repaired again. That means I'm without my camera for anothe 6 - 8 weeks. At this point, I'm ready to trash it and go back to 35 mm.

SOURCE: what does unidentified image mean?

The card has become corrupted. First make sure that you have downloaded and backed up all the pictures that you wish to keep from the card. If your computer does not recognize them from the card, you may need to use recovery software. Here's some freeware that's very good:

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/recovering-those-accidentally-lost.html

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're cheap:

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_st?keywords=card+reader&rs=172282&page=1&rh=n%3A172282%2Ck%3Acard+reader&sort=price

The reason this occurred is that you likely never formatted the card. The card will work fine in the beginning but eventually will corrupt. AFTER you've recovered and backed up your photos, format the card in your camera to prevent this from happening again (dig out that instruction manual to figure out how). Keep in mind formatting will also totally erase your card, so again only do this after you've recovered the photos.

Not a perfect solution, but CANON will replace the camera, regardless of waranty if they find it is their problem if it is the SD400 ... I've sent them an email to see if the same applies for all their cameras.
Maybe if enough people respond, they will give us some free software .... other companies can do it, why doesn't Canon?'

If it is determined by Canon USA that your PowerShot S400 camera is exhibiting the CF Card communication problem that has been identified, the camera will be repaired free of charge, regardless of whether the camera is still under warranty. In addition, a refund of a previously paid repair will be made if it is determined by Canon USA that the repair of your PowerShot S400 was prompted by the CF Card communication problem that has been identified.

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.

Testimonial: "Spot on... problem sorted. It seems iphoto is happy to load short clips but longer vids are too much so quicktime was the solution. thanks :-)"

SOURCE: how to recover pictures from my canon powershot sx100 IS?

As a matter of fact, chances of recovery can be high as long as you act as soon as possible and stop using the camera to take more photos or videos or saving more data to the camera memory card. Then you can find some tested and reliable program from this site Digital Camera Recovery Software. Here are the steps you may follow.
1. Connect your camera (memory card) PC or Mac which has installed the recovery program.
2. Scan for the lost files (photos, videos etc).
3. Recover them.
Or learn more from this tutorial: how to recover photos from camera.
Hope this helps, best regards.

Try to retrieve the files from the memory into your computer, if you can't see the pictures after they are moved, they might have been corrupted while you were using the camera.
In theory, you might have placed the camera near a strong magnetic field, like a speaker. This could explain the files being corrupted if that's the problem you have.

Okay at least the memory card isn't locked or it wouldn't be taking any pictures. Couple things one is did your format the memory card before using it? Do you format the memory card after downloading pictures to the computer? Do you just unplug the USB cable or remove the memory card from a card reader before doing a safe disconnect? What I believe is that you delete and delete and delete pictures from the card and it's not corrupted with a lot of useless data residue. Short answer to your problem is format the memory card in the camera you intend to use it in. Have a great day

There have been several reports of CF cards that work with all cameras, except the Rebel XTi. It depends on the actual manufacturer of the card. Canon made a change mid-production that affected the data saving. Try another brand of card & you should not have that problem any more.

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.

Camera freezing


try a new memory card. also try to reformat the memory card. dont take images you care about until resolved.
i would try to remove the battery for about 10 seconds, and then reinstall, then reformat the memory card. if you still have the same issues, replace the memory card. it that does not cure it, you have a warranty repair to manage.
good luck

Dark shadow on right side of picture


sounds like a shutter leaf dropping into the image. however, they are usually horizontal and more likely to manifest when in landscape mode. (horizontal, normal)
try using flash pointed up to ceiling.
also, could need to check for auto sync speed setting. usually 1/125 to 1/60. if its off, it could be catching the shutter in the wrong place.
check manual for settings for using flash.
