Question about Canon PowerShot A720 IS Digital Camera

2 Answers

''incompatible jpg'' I took the Kingston memory card out of my CanonA720IS digital and moved my pictures to IPhoto on my Mac so that I could edit them. When I finished editing, I used the same Promaster card reader/writer to return the pics to the memory card, since hooking up my camera to my tv is the only way I can show large pics to my entire family at once. But when I checked them in the camera, about 20% showed only a thumbnail with the message ''incompatible jpg,'' or had just a question mark where the image should have been. Ideas?

You may have changed the format/extension of files when you imported them into your compute or after you edited them. r.

It could be your computer or the program you used to edit them with. If you can still read them on your computer, but not on your camera, then the formats aren't compatible. Most editing software is designed to open or import a large number of different formats and variations. Your camera will probably only accept the ones it creates

IPhoto may have changed the format of the file after it was edited and saved. You may have to choose "save as" and choose the correct file format.

The IXUS 50 works with MMC and SD cards. Your new 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Based on the file size, the files in question are probably RAW, not jpg files. Nikon View NX software or Photoshop will be able to open those files. You may want to convert them to jpg files, but do keep the RAW files since they contain much more picture detail then the jpg files.

I have a 4 GB memory card on my Lumix camera. I have downloaded all videos and photos to my iPhoto on my MAC, but the memory card keeps saying full. There is nothing on the camera as far as I can see. ...


Hi, did you click the option to erase the photos from the card after you imported them into iPhoto? It could be that the images are still on the card and that iPhoto has just deleted the directory.
If you are sure that the photos are all on your Mac then the best thing is to use the camera's menu and reformat the card.
I have made a point of NEVER letting iPhoto delete the pictures but I delete them manually in the camera once I know they are safe in iPhoto. However, I am finding that I am no-longer deleting the photos from the card - when it is full I put it aside and use a new one - they are so cheap now - way cheaper than film is.

I use a mac. Have all pictures stored on iphone and would love to know how to get the photos to my photo frame. Not sure how to get pictures from iphoto to a memory card or whatever it is I need to do.


Use iPhoto to get the images off your iPhone and onto your Mac, then export you selected images to a media format the photo frame support.
Now without knowing the requirements of the photo frame but going to guess it accepts and USB thumb drive. Once you have imported your images into iPhoto from your iPhone, plug in the USB thumb drive to your Mac. In iPhoto, select the images you wish to move to your photo frame ( either select an album or individual images). Then go to the File Menu and pull down to Export and save the images to your Thumb drive. For best results for image quality on the photo frame you will want to match the export size with the native resolution of the photo frame.

Trying to upload photos from my Canon Power shot SD780 is to my Mac but when I plug in the cable the camera says "incompatible jpeg". And no icon to upload the photos shows up on my Mac.


if using iPhoto, check for software updates. When the newer cameras come out, sometimes it results in incompatibility with the software and they're always working to update this.
Also check your card in your camera. Some of the newer high speed cards struggle with uploads. You can purchase aftermarket high speed card readers and this will allow firewire rapid uploads direct to iPhoto and Aperture.

iphoto is just for still photos. Use a card reader to download your videos to a folder you create on your desktop. Double click on the video and Quicktime will play it. You can use imovie to edit it.

I had to re-format the card losing all the photos but I had saved them in iPhoto so that was ok. I think the problem was caused by me incorrectly closing down after downloading them to iPhoto, so my fault and lesson learned.
