Question about Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Unidentified Images. I bought the Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera a while ago, and all of a sudden, when I take pictures, and I view them, most of the time it says "Unidentified Image".  I got advice to plug it into the computer, and it made a lot of the pictures unidentified too. Help?

    I have the same problem. It doesn't always happen, more often with video, sort of arbitrary.

    Exactly same problem. First I was getting "Unidentified Image" once in a while. No every single one is Unidentified. I'm using 4 GB SanDisk SD card. I have a feeling it's the card compatibility issue. I put in included 32MB Canon SD card and camera takes pictures OK. I'm going to buy another (non SanDisk) SD card and try it...

    I am having the same problem and I use 3 different kinds of memory cards with the camera, scandisk, kodak, and kingston, when I first got the camera I could view all the pictures on the computer but now about only half. I can view them fine on the camera though.

I would try formating the card using the camera (menu - setup - format) - THIS WILL ERASE ALL THE PICTURES YOU CURRENTLY HAVE ON YOUR CARD, so before you do this you may want to get a memory card reader and transfer the pictures (click and drag) to your computer. As to using the 4GB card...you will have to check with canon if a card that size if compatable. Not all cameras work with SD cards larger than 2GB.

I was taking picture and they coming out fine. and then all of a sudden the pictures started coming out messed up. I think there is something wrong with the focus. any ideas?


Could be a lens error or display error. The latter can be tested by viewing the pictures on a PC or Mac. Lens errors in a Canon are tricky and usually of mechanical nature - such as a grain of sand in the mechanism. Let the lense expand / contract a few times to test it.

My Canon Powershot sd1000 is locked up. It turns on but will not take pics and I cannot view images. It is locked on one picture.


Check the lock switch on the side of the memory card. That is usually what causes the situation you are describing. It may have moved to the locked position accidently
