Corrupted Data problem

I was given a used powershot s50 and I got a new battery and installed it. I took a picture and when I tried to review it, it said corrupted data. Then the LCD goes black and says E52 in the bottom left corner. I went and bought a new 1 gig memory card and it still does the same thing. Is there a way to fix this? If it needs to be repaired will the cost be worth it?

Try to retrieve the files from the memory into your computer, if you can't see the pictures after they are moved, they might have been corrupted while you were using the camera.
In theory, you might have placed the camera near a strong magnetic field, like a speaker. This could explain the files being corrupted if that's the problem you have.

Why corrupted data message on photos taken on Canon A610?


Cards and cameras can be corrupted by pulling the USB cord out of the computer without using the "safely remove hardware" function. Sometimes, a card can be rescued by formatting it in the camera although this completely erases it so download any pics first using a card reader if necessary.

Lost 70 pictures from trip, camera showing corrupted data


I would suggest purchasing a leading brand card reader(eg lexar or sandisk) as they often come with image recovery software to help in these situations. Once you recover your images, try formatting the card in the camera and see how it goes this time. If you dont want to take chances though, just replace the card with a quality brand. Good Luck!

Flash use "kills battery dead"


The most likely culprit is a several year old battery that is not accepting or holding a sufficient charge. Turning the camera on, and taking a non-flash photo may not tax the battery too much. However, when the flash is called for, the power demand may exceed the battery's ability to deliver enough juice. A new(er) battery is probably your best bet to resolve the problem.
