'read error' comes up when i go to look at the pics taken
Hi. I hope you can help me. Basically I seem to be able to take photos fine, bt when i come to press the play button to view them , and scan back theough them, it gets to a point and then comes up with 'read error' . Is this a graphics card issue?

General you do not need the software to do this, most of the pics are either in JPEG formate and any software program will work with it. Windows Photo Viewer should be with your software It is part of the Operating System. I use this on any camera or phone I use. There are fancy ones that will edit as well but just start with the one given to you. Plug the phone in to your computer using the cable provided with the phone to do this then it should read a series of options look for a photo viewer that comes up I would use the Windows one then hit get pictures from camera. You should be able to get the photos from the phone. I hope this helped you. John
Sounds like the card is failing - try recovering the images with a free software package - Google will find you lots - then Format or discard the card. Format in the camera - NEVER format using a computer
You are basically right. Its basically as easy to replace as it costs to repair, unfortunately those are your options. You could inquire as to an estimate to make your decision easier, or locate an independent repair shop as they may be cheaper. The camera would need to be taken apart and I only recommend that if you know what your doing. Thanks, Lee
I have exactly the same problem and am wondering if this is due to memory card? I have a lot of pics showing file error and some pictures with a panel from another pics. Can you please keep us updated on your follow ups and let us know if we can help?
If you can review the photos on the card while it is still in the camera (and by review, I mean go back and forth between multiple photos on the card), then there are two possibilities:
1. The photos really are on the card, and your computer can't read the card.
2. The photos really AREN'T on the card, and are perhaps in internal memory on the camera instead.
Some thoughts for things to try:
1. Put the card in the camera, take a few photos, make sure you can review them all on the camera. Take the card out. NOW try reviewing photos on the camera with NO card in. What happens?
2. Try putting the card in your card reader in your computer. Copy a file (any file, a word document, anything) from your hard drive onto the card. Is it there? Can you copy the file back off the card to somewhere else?
It sounds like the camera is fine, and the problem is with the card or the media reader.
Sounds like the file allocation table on the card got screwed up. Try Googling Compact Flash Data Recovery. I know you're not using compact flash cards but the techniques for data recovery are pretty much the same regardless of the media. If and when you're able to recover what you can, I wouldn't use that card anymore myself. Good luck!
