    When you plug camera into computer and windows starts all of the pictures have red "X's" over the pictures. No pictures will show up!

    I noticed, that if i have a 4GB card on my Samsung S1050, the photos, that are taken above the cca 2GB, are corrupted and they are somehow overwriting the content of the previous photos, leading to "file error" message on the LCD. So some of the photos are corrupted from my vacation. At home, at the computer i tried some recovery tools with some luck, but still some photos get lost. I tried to get some new firmware for my camera, but with no luck...
    Have any idea how to solve this (or just using max 2GB cards) ?

    Same thing. Keep getting file error, now can't upload or view pictures. Is it the camera or the card? Thought it was the card but the same thing happens when I plug in with the cable. Help!

    I took some pics the other night and when I looked at them on my camera they were fine. A couple of hours later, about 6 of the pictures went pixilated when I viewed them on my camera, then the screen went blank and said 'file error'. I tried uploading them to my computer, but it won't let me view them properly. I know they're there, as I have pixilated previews on my PC and camera.

    I have a Sony Cybershot DSC700. I started having this problem when I bought a new memory stick pro duo (presumably fake). Random pictures would have this file error message on a blue screen, and cannot be read by Windows Picture Viewer when I upload it to my PC.

I have two S760 also having the 'file error' on just some shots Like graham-s-sk new sandisk 2gb and when downloaded the file is there but the attributes are currupted. Talked to Samsung who said the sd card should be formatted on the camera and not to rely on the Sandisk formatting. Have tried this and taken 100 test shots - so far so good!

I returnd my d860, and got the samsung s860 as a replacement. they are basically the same. I had a few problems at first, and with the computer and camera connected, used windows to format. I have noticed that sometimes when first switched on, the camera will advise the batteries need replaced, and then go on to show two of the three battery level bars. This seems to be when corruption occurs. Open the battery compartment without switching off, or just replace if you've got spare rechargeables ready. Even if I just then close the battery compartment with the same ones, it will switch back on showing full charge, but I haven't taken a lot of pictures in one session doing this. I messed with video mode once and flattened the bateries, leaving one corrupt file. If you can, download your pictures and reformat the card regularly, and watch out for the battery warning. Happy snapping!

Read error appears after downloading pictures and looking back in the camera, some pictures have read error


When you hook your camera to your computer you are accessing it like a disk and changes made to "files" are saved to the disk. A common change is to rotate the image so it views correctly on the computer screen for images you turned the camera to take a portrait oriantation shot. That change is saved to the image on disk, then the camera can no longer display it because it is not the right "dimensions" for the camera (it is rotated)

Problem with the Olympus FE-115 Digital Camera my


Unfortunately, the picture error message means that the image been modified such that the camera can't read it. It is possible that the camera thinks the picture was taken by another camera. Since the picture is still good when you check it with the computer, it hasn't been damaged. Archive the picture and make sure to back it up after it goes on the computer. (If the computer couldn't view it, then you'd need some sort of file recovery software and might not get the entire image back.)

Manuals for the FE-115 are available from the Olympus site: http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_archived_product_details.asp?id=1227&fl=8 .

I hope this helps.

'File error' message on samsung L200 camera when viewing a photo


Possible solution:

I had/have the same problem using L200 and SDHC memory card, called Samsung. Can't view certain pictures on camera or computer, camera freezes when viewing those certain pictures, green light flashing.

Samsung support told me that I needed to copy my (good) pictures to a computer first because a memory format will erase everything. Then format (menu->settings->format->yes) my memory card. Tried this just now and took some new pictures, so far so good.

File errors


http://www.samsungcamera.com/popup/download.asp?prj_uid=741&prol_uid=4153
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.
Please rate me.

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.

Pictures cannot be download


When you try to transfer a large number of files (or a single large file) from a PTP (Picture Transfer Protocol) device, such as a Sony Memory Stick, you may receive an error message saying that your computer cannot detect your camera or that, although it has detected the camera, the current picture cannot be copied. This happens because in older versions of WinXP the PTP driver limits file transfer to 2,048 files at one time and those files must be less than 210MB. If you update WinXP with Microsoft's latest service pack you should eliminate the problem.
