Question about Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have recently been on vacation. I checked photos on the LCD screen after a days shooting. All was well. I have now downloaded the pictures to my computer. Photos from the first several days are missing and perhaps others too, scattered through the remaining days. When I try to review the pictures again on the LCD screen I can see the pictures I was able to download but also many blank screens with "incompatible JPEG". What does this mean and is there a way to retrieve my missing pictures from the card? This card has never been used in another camera and no one else has used the camera.

Is your means that: you can't see some of your picture from your camera screen? I have met this problem before, this is because you have do some a action for your image when your see it on your PC, such as flip... The camera can't read the pictures edited by the other software...So your picture haven't miss...they are on your card,,and you can moved them to your PC and you can see them all.

Lost vacation photos...message is memory card failure


As long as the xD card was not formatted it is possible to recover the images that were accidently erased,lost or corrupted. You can go to the following website link and download an image recovery software program that is free of charge.
http://www.z-a-recovery.com/
You want to download a program called Zero Assumption Recovery. It is a very simple program to use and many people have had much success in recovering lost images.

Data recovery is a booming industry, and many appropriate services and software can be found by searching regional phone and business directories or the Internet for terms such as "image recovery" or "data recovery".

Downloading photos from my Canon A95


Sounds like the card has become corrupted. Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/recovering-those-accidentally-lost.html

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. Also, highly recommend that you consider using a card reader to download your pictures in the future. You insert the camera's memory card into the reader, and then insert the reader into a USB port on your computer. The card then shows up as a hard drive so that you can simply copy/paste or drag your picture files onto your computer. Card readers are much more faster in downloading pics, do not require the use of your camera's batteries, and provide much more reliable downloading of the pictures (fewer errors). They're also VERY inexpensive these days. Here are some examples from Amazon for your CF card:

http://www.amazon.com/s/qid=1223745821/ref=sr_st?keywords=cf+compact+flash+card+reader&rs=172282&page=1&rh=n%3A172282%2Ck%3Acf+compact+flash+card+reader&sort=price

And finally, recommend formatting your card in your camera only AFTER you've recovered your photos (this will erase the card). This should fix the card for future use. Turn on the camera, select menu, then select the tools menu. Scroll down to the selection outlining your's cards memory capacity and select it. Then follow the formatting prompts.

Blank lcd screen when camera is on


No solution for your first problem but it's normal that you cannot view your photo on the LCD screen before actually taking it. Due to the way a reflex camera is built, you can't have a live view on your LCD. The Fuji S3 Pro has this type of preview as also most recent camera (Nikon D300, Canon 40D...).

Battery life


Are you keeping the large LCD screen on all the time? If so, that will dramatically reduce battery life. Same goes for flash use (although for 8 shots shouldn't be a factor) and constant stabilization. Also, by low battery do you mean that the camera is turning itself off and can't be turned back on? If just the icon is showing low battery life, it could be that the sensor wrong. I have an MP3 player that will say it has zero battery power, but will really play for another two hours. You should be able to take many more than 8 shots with one battery. I've taken 500 photos over a period of nine days on one battery with my FZ10. Viewfinder only, stabilization only when shooting, no flash use.
