Question about Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera

1 Answer

X-D picture error message.

I was on a trip to Aruba, had taken pictures before getting there (which I can still view) and was able to view the pics I took in Aruba while there. Four days into the trip, I got the "error message" and now I can not view the pics I took while in Aruba, before I got the message. I subsequently took pics after the message, which I can now view, but want the others back. How can I recover those pics?
Please help[!

Re: x-D picture error message.

Well, you can try to recover it using recovery software, but you are out of luck, it seems Olympus have some issue with memory card slot in FE model, I have FE280 and it happened to me three times already and I call the support they are no help what so ever. Answer they provide is format the card.

you can try to recover it using memory card reader, but you have to find one that support Xd slot.

Sorry to hear that you have that problem, take as lesson learn and don't buy Olympus.

My Samsung ES17 keeps saying file error when i try to view pics taken?

I got the same problem when I rotated a picture on my camera using my computer and then tried to view it using the camera. after some research I got to know that cameras can't read a picture after it has been edited out of the camera.
You would also get this message if the memory card is damaged following extensive use (which is quite natural with flash memory) in which case you would have to buy a new card.

After I take picture, the picture is captured & shown but when I try to view,(by pressing playback) it displays 'Cannot playback Image' with a big question mark. When I downloaded & tried to view...

Check to make sure that you did not accidentally change image format from jpg to crw(camera raw). Your camera lcd will only display jpg files and you need special software to view raw files on the pc.

Losing photos

They are probably still there. Get yourself a card reader and use it to download your pics. f1eb652.jpg

I have a DSC T70. Sometimes i get a message "File Error" for some of the pictures. For these pictures, the file does not show and when printed, the picture is merged with another picture.

The LCD screen of the Camera may display a FILE ERROR message when trying to view a still image on the Camera if the image was rotated, modified and overwritten using editing software on a Computer.

To play images you have taken on the Camera, it is recommended that you do not make any changes to the original image files.

File errors
Download the english manual version pdf file and open with adobe reader go to page 84.
When you upload a file that is not taken by this camera to the removable disk, the [File Error!] message will be displayed on the LCD monitor in the play mode, and nothing is displayed in the THUMBNAIL mode.

Make sure that the memory card is formated in the camera not the memory card reader on the computer. Make sure you save your edited files in jpeg file format. Avi for movies. The manual makes it sound like the camera will not read altered files or files not taken by the camera itself. edited files are not files taken by the camera. Good luck I hope this helps.

File error when viewing pics

Your pictures appear to have been corrupted.
Here is what you can try:
copy the files from your card directly to the computer HD. Then look at the files with your computer system browser, and choose the full view, or in Windows it would be VIEW/ List or details . If the names are missing any letters, then simply do this:
Make a copy of the original file and rename it to something like:

I_G123B,jg (original renamed file...note that I added the B so the name is not the same as the original) to IMG123.jpg . Once the file is renamed to what may have been originally, you will be able to view the picture again.
Some times the corrupted name may be even more confusing. The main thing to remember is to make sure you have a .jpg or .JPG at the end so that the computer system will recognize the file format and be able to read the file. The way you name what is before the period ( .jpg) is not that important, but should reflect the original file for your own information.
This file corruption is more common than one may think. I have seen it on Nikons, Sonys, Canons.
And others.
