Question about Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera
I used my memory card to download some pictures on to my computer. When I replaced the memory card, many of my pictures were gone and a large question mark displayed-Incompatible JPEG format written beneath it. What has happened and how do I fix this?
Since i've read so many many site and they didn't give me the right solutions,I just simply view the picture in the computer and took the photo with my camera again. Don't worry,cannon is a good camera, it won't blur your pics from the computer. And for anybody who is going try my simple way,what i did(detaily) was turn off the light outside so the comp won't be "shine" like a mirror , turn off the flash of the camera and turn down the light of the computer about 50% so the pic we took won't be too bright :P I always did it the most basic and lamest way. Who knows? It works for me.

I have the same problem. I didn't understand the suggested solution. I downloaded pictures from the memory card to the computer using the software supplied by Canon. When the memory card is replaced in the camera I get the "incompatible jpeg format" error message and no picture is displayed. I did not move a modified or edited picture from the computer to the memory card, so I don't understand why I can't view the original picture in the camera. I may also be getting this error message on photos that I did not download to the computer. How can I view these files? Are they now lost?

SOURCE: I used my memory card
That means the photo's are still on the card however their formatting has changed which caused them to not be viewable on the camera. You're still able to get them off the card and onto the computer, and view them on the computer, you're just not able to see them on the camera.
