Recovering corrupted data on a san disk - Lumix DMC-TZ3
I have lost several pictures that were stored on my external card. When I look at them on a computer they are there but I can't copy or view them. They look corrupted. Anyone know how to recover these files?

Hello, It might be an idea to check whether your "white balance" is not set to "fluorescent light" or "custom white balance". "Auto" is the safest option here. Incorrect white balance would cause blue/yellow cast on the picture. Otherwise the problem might be more severe (i.e. sensor failure-not common in TZ3 though). If you're still getting blue cast with white balance set to auto, you can try to set "custom white balance" with white sheet of paper (refer to the manual for details) - this will override auto white balance. Good luck! Raf
Use your USB cable or a Card Reader. Read your manual to insert Date on pictures. Note date will show on pic and cannot be removed.
Best idea is to downloand you pics asap and change each pic file name to embed date taken in filename, not on the pic itself.
I recomment the San Disk MobileMate SD+ miniature Card Reader for SD and MicroSD card reading. Just a little larger than a Flash Thumb Drive. Saves lugging around a USB camera cable and saves your camera power otherwise needed to power a download via a USB cable. About $15 at RadioShack, Staples, etc retail stores selling cameras.
