Storing to memory card. Five of seven photos just fine. Two appear fine in size and look great when Reviewed through the camera, but when I copied them to the pc hard-drive (and also straight from the SD card) the error message is: Decode error! JPEG datastream contains no image. .... or, File format is not recognized by this software. I've tried LView Pro, Irfanview, Wildbit, and Picture It! All give similar messages. These two photos are from a special trip yesterday and very important to us. Can anyone help me salvage them? (I'm a grandma who does okay with computer stuff, but have no formal education on them or anything). I sure do want those two photos. Don't know why it happened! The 4 before and 1 AFTER that are fine!

Re: Decode error! JPEG datastream contains no image.
Kodak has software that should be able to make sure those pictures are in JPEG format. Id use that at first instead of a third party program. Picture It! does some funny things to pictures and Microsoft discontinued that product line several years ago.

A memory stick generally refers to a USB device that you use to transfer digital media from one device to another. Your camera would utilize a memory card - depending on your camera this could be a CF card (bigger almost square) or a SD card (looks like a SIM card.
As to the number of pictures you can take: This depends on a number of things - 1) Internal memory of the Camera 2) Size of your memory card 3) Settings you shoot with.
Depending on the camera you have you can set the quality and type of format - format could be your camera's raw capability which is usually the largest size to save an image in or it could be set to JPEG (here you normally have settings like Fine, Medium and High or Small, Medium, Large) some cameras only offer JPEG output and will only show you the option to set it on small, medium or large.
Smaller size = More photos, but keep in mind that this affects what you can do with the photo. If you want to use it for the Web or mobile then small is no problem, if you want to print the photo then a medium (preferably large) setting should be used.
The best is to have multiple cards and then you can continue shooting even if you are not at a place where you can download what you have already.
A camera raw image file contains minimally processed data from the camera.This is mostly used for professionals who want the absolute highest quality from their photos. However, RAW photos are very very large in file size, and will fill up your memory card quickly. I recommend shooting in the highest quality JPEG file format.This will give you great looking photos, but with a more manageable file size. Hope this helps! And if it did, feel free to rate me :)
Slow down your shooting. The "R11" indicates
that you can take 11 more images before the buffer is full and the
camera will stop functioning until the images are moved to the memory
card. Select a smaller file size. Nikon cameras allow you to select from
several sizes of JPEG as well as a RAW and a RAW + JPEG file. These
files vary in size. If you select a smaller file size, the buffer will
take longer to fill, allowing you to shoot longerTurn off long exposure noise reduction. This function causes the camera
to expose twice for every image, and this can fill up the buffer quickly
as those images are processed and written to the card.

It depends on the picture resolution and the size of the memory card. Normal JPEG 2048 x 1472 : 11.0 - With 16MB
built-in memory , Fine JPEG 2496 x 2016 : 19.0 - With 16MB built-in
memory , Normal JPEG 2048 x 1376 : 19.0 - With 16MB built-in memory ,
Fine JPEG 2496 x 2016 : 9.0 - With 16MB built-in memory , Normal JPEG
2048 x 1472 : 9.0 - With 16MB built-in memory , Normal JPEG 2048 x 1376 :
35.0 - With 16MB built-in memory , Fine JPEG 1024 x 736 , Fine JPEG
1024 x 736
The capacity of various memory cards will be similar to the above ratios.
I'll assume you're Lucid 8 is an 8" frame which is likely to be 800 x 600 pixels.
Giving a size in KB isn't the best criteria - it depends on lots of things including what format you're storing in, the composition of the photo, the software you're using, how many photos you want to display and what you're storing them on. I'll assume the storage isn't an issue and you only care about quality.
If you're storing in JPEG, make sure your image is the same size as the frame (probably 800 x 600 pixels), for an average image, a good balance of compression and quality would be 100-250 KB.
The display can only show 3 numbers, so when the memory card can hold over 1000 pictures you will see a "1.0" with a little "K" above and to the right of the 0. Let's say that you have a 2gig memory card and you have your picture quality set to JPEG Normal, you might see 1.0 indicating 1000 available image spots available. If you set to JPEG basic it will say 1.9 meaning 1.9 thousand or 1900 images. With a 2gig card you will see it drop below 1000 if you set your quality to RAW or JPEG fine.
JPEG format storage is ideal for posting your photos to the Internet and for e-mailing them to friends. (It’s also useful for archiving when you've finished editing them and need to save storage space.) The compressed images still look good on-screen and contain a relatively large amount of information in the shrunken file.
JPEG storage is great for maximizing space but not for maintaining image quality. If you want to get smaller files for archiving, use minimal JPEG compression (high quality/low compression). The ideal compression is lossless, which means there's no discernible drop in image quality even though the file size has decreased.
