File format has gotten messed up on .jpg files. Files still exist, but can't be read by camera or computer. Extensions are strange, like .j0x and .jxg

SOURCE: Invalid File...

There is quite probably some connection error between the memory card and the camera's memory card bay. Take a clean anti-static fabric (like the one we use to clean eye-glasses) and wipe the contacts of the memory card and those of the camera's memory card bay/slot (if you can reach them somehow).

Have you tried another card? If another memory card works, then it's obviously a problem of the specific card.

SOURCE: I have a aiptek by mistake i format the sd card

You may need to try some photo recovery software to rescue the pictures, here are some for your option. You may not recover all the pictures, but will recover most of them.

Photo Recovery (for Windows)
Photo Recovery for Mac


Both programs are able to recover pictures, videos and music files.

Note: Before your files are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the SD card in case the original lost files are overwritten.

SOURCE: Importing Error

The problem is probably the same one i had. After successfully importing videos and pictures from my SD card, Windows 7 started giving me that error. I discovered that it was caused by the fact that I had imported some directly to an external USB hard drive (E:) and had set the default import directory to it (I can't remember if I had done this dileberately, or if W7 remembered it).
Fix: Just before you start the import, click the more options link at the bottom, and change your default folder to the local drive or to an attached external drive, something that exists at the time.
Worked like a charm after that!

How do I change the format of my downloaded pix from NEF to JPEG?


I use GIMP 2, a free open source editor that is very sophisticated.

I think I had to install an add-on so that it would read NEF files. Gimp converts all files that are edited in it to its own "xtg" file extensions. After I finish editing, I save the picture in the "xtg" file extension then I import it in "jpg" format to the same folder where the original NEF along with the XTG formats are stored. During the editing process, I usually scale the image if I plan to send it somewhere on the web.

I think a lot of other editors have a similar function, especially if the proper codecs are installed.


In addition, in the past I have used conversion programs to do the same thing but it's been a long time. Do a web search for NEF converters and you may come up with a free program or two that will allow you to make the conversion without editing the picture.

I have an olympus e410 camera and the images on the memory card are saving as an "ORF" file and will not open in windows. how do i reset my camera to factory settings??


I have a suggestion. ORF is probably "Olympus Raw File" format and you need software to open raw files. See if your camera came with software to do this or use GIMP, PHOTOSHOP, Adobe lightroom. Read your owners manual and change from RAW file to JPG formats. That way, almost any program can open them.

We have a Canon EOS 500D. After using it for 18 months we suddenly have a Raw notice and cannot print photos. We dont know where this has come from or to get rid of it. Advise please.


Sounds to me as if someone has set the image "Quality" to RAW files which are more for a professional or advanced amateur use. Page 70 of your owners manual will show you how to set this "Quality" to jpg. I'm going to include a screen shot of this page because it has diagrams and instructions far better then what I can explain just in type.

Also the RAW files you have must me downloaded to your computer, opened in your image software program and converted to jpg file format before you can print, e-mail or any other "normal" thing people do with jpg format.

RAW is just that the actual raw file of the image captured where as the jpg file format is the compressed version with corrections already made in camera. RAW files need correction in post processing.

I suspect you are using the Rebel's direct printing feature which can not process RAW file format, I don't think you want to print RAW as there has been not corrections.

I know this will help.

Here is the diagrams.

My SX10 is supposed to have a maximum of ten megapixil but no matter if I set it at ten or any setting above the minimum it always takes the picture at the minimum megapixil. Where am I going wrong?


You aren't doing anything wrong, set your camera at the highest resolution and you will have a "large" picture file. If you are shooting jpg format then it's a compressed file from the actual "RAW" file that was produced. However RAW files require special programing to open and use while jpg file format is the "standard" to which all printers and other devices work. I have an 8 meg camera that constantly produces 4, 5 and 6 meg photo files in jpg format and from this I can print and have printed poster size images from 20x30 and 36x40.

My camera kodak easyshare C1013 cannot show pictures. it says "unrecognised file format"..i need help


The camera stores the pictures in a JPEG format only. You can use .jpg files in most image editing programs. Videos are stored in a .mov format that you can view with QUICKTIME software or KODAK Picture Software.

* What you can do is transfer the pictures to your computer and check the file format
* You can delete photo then just take a photo again.

Unrecognized file format means the file format of the picture in the camera is not JPEG or the memory card is faulty

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.

No images


Look in Explorer at the .jpg files on your card to make sure they have information in each file. Next, make sure your software is set to view .jpg files,i.e. Faststone Image viewer (download.com) can be set for virtually any image format. If you viewed the images on the lcd monitor they were on the card at that time. Make sure you haven't somehow protected those image files or have accidentally reformatted it.

Can't place camera image file into another document


Nikon digital cameras record images in the "EXIF" (Exchangeable Image File Format) file type. Even though the file name (when shooting compressed files) ends in ".jpg" it is not a regular JPEG image. This format includes not only the JPEG picture data but also the shooting information (f/stop, shutter speed, lens, etc.) and other text-based data. Writing this type of information is part of the global "DCF" standard for images from digital cameras. Some applications do not properly read this data and will display various errors and warning when opening these files. The only way to use an image in one of these programs is to open it in an image-editing program and save the file to a new file name. This changes the file from an EXIF image and saves it into whatever format is chosen, stripping out all of the extra data. Contact the developer of the program which does not properly open EXIF files for possible updates.
