Hi i have my a710 over 8 months now. from times to times i have this problem. The picture or video is shoot fine but when i turn off the camera and after some minutes i turn it back on some of the just stored video/pictures are damaged!
My memory card is: 4GB Transcend Secure Digital Card High Capacity (SDHC) Class 6 (p/n SDHC-4GB-CL6) url: http://www.memoryx.net/sd4.html
When it seemed the files were damaged on the camera, have you tried to read them from a computer using a reader (many laptops have SD readers built in)?
If the data is there on the PC, better take the camera to service before the problem becomes more severe.
If on the PC the data is damaged, try using another card, if everything is OK with the other one, discard the problem card or try to clean the contacts as follows:
card, put it on table with gold contacts facing up, use a cotton tipped stick
with some ethyl alcohol (not alcohol drinks!) or isopropyl alcohol (many
cleaning solutions like magnetic head cleaners) to thoroughly clean each
contact. Avoid spilling and leaving drops on the card. Dry the card well before
inserting it again. Never use water or other cleaning solutions or you'll ruin
Also it is a good idea to use cards up to 2GB, as 4GB and bigger have different signalling and may cause problems with your camera.

The CTG file are the temporary files that a Canon Camera creates with every picture you click and is stored on the Card. These are not the actual picture files. Try to copy only the JPEG files and if possible format your Card since these CTG files are supposed to be deleted automatically when you erase/copy a picture from Card.
Hi.First of all move all the files/data which is stored in your phone memory (Gallery>> image,videos,music,receive files etc.)to memory card.After you finished this take another picture and see.If this trick is not helpful Restore the phone by selecting Restore Setting Only.Good luck
Greetings - It sounds like you are trying to use the camera's internal memory to shoot video. The camera only has 14 MB of internal memory.
If you want to shoot video or store more than a handful of pictures you need to get yourself an SD memory card and install it as directed in the manual. A two GB card would hold up to 60 minutes of video and can be purchased for about 10 dollars (USD).
The camcorder has an extirely separate storage compartments functioning as an entity of its own. Capture the pictures or videos to be stored on the cameras builtin hard disk. Once the shoots acquired are ready to be transmitted into the computer require USB cables provided with the camera at acquisition. An unavailble USb cable is acquirable from retail to achieve the link for transfer to take place. Plugging the camera to the computer with cables provided should produce transfer results. The computer always request to transfer what has been acquire in the cameras disk. A permittion response usually a click of button would require naming the photos or videos about to be imported into the computer. provide a name to the transfer media and also choose from the pop up menu automatically displayed an area on the computer. For example, the computers pictures or briefcase allows to store similar files easily retrievable with computers that have several data files or disk storage media.
That depends on several factors. Among them are the picture resolution (a 12MP picture will generally take more space than a 6MP picture), the quality (BASIC will produce smaller files than FINE). In addition, some cameras allow you take pictures in RAW format instead of (or in addition to) JPEG format. RAW files are much larger than JPEG files since they include all the data that comes from the sensor, not just the processed results. In addition, the subject itself will affect the size (a blank white wall requires less memory than a finely detailed landscape, for example).
Your manual should have a page giving you general guidelines as to how many pictures you could expect to store on a card. That page may give you numbers for a different sized card, but you can simply scale the results. For example, if the page says it's for a 1GB card, simply double all the numbers.
It's also good practice to have a spare card. That way, if you suddenly get creative (or if something happens to your first card) you can keep shooting.
Nikon approved CompactFlash memory cards up to 256MB in size for the 5700. The 5700 may be able to handle cards as large as 1GB, but I haven't tested this personally. When this camera was introduced in 2002, 256MB was a really big card. Many older cameras can't handle the 2GB, 4GB and larger cards we're seeing today.
