Question about Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera
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.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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

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 :-)"
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.
