Re: unrecognised file format
Has the card been out the camaera and into a computer in the mean time?
Or have you loaded back up stuff from the computer?
If you do not work this way- take the card to a processing store and ask for the images to be burned to disk while you wait - see what they say about the picture you cant assess in the camera.other wise it mean saving those you can and formatting the card in the camera.
Or if you have an access to a PC and recovery software see what can be pulled out .

TRANSFERRING PHOTOS TO COMPUTER If your photos are stored on the memory card, then removethe memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader.Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of yourworking computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device oran external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card andcopy the photos to your computer.Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. Youcan copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off yourmemory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing anyprograms.
Are you trying to have two different cameras write to the same card? That is a terrible idea. It's not that unusual for a camera to have trouble writing to a card that it didn't format. Use a separate card for each camera, and have the camera format that card before use and after each time you download the photos to your computer.
Take no more pics until you've recovered your photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos.

Do not take any more pictures, and remove the card from the camera to lessen the chance of you overwriting some important pictures or videos. There are very many freeware software options available to help you recover your files. Please see this article that reviews several of the better freeware recovery programs that you can try (and yes, these truly are freeware). You may need to use a card reader with these programs though.
AFTER you've recovered the photos, format the card in the camera using the camera's format feature to prevent this from happening again.
You need to format it before you can use it, just like a disk drive. In a phone or camera, somewhere in your SETTINGS or CONTROL PANEL there should be an option to format your data card. If your computer has an SD slot, pop it in, find it in the list of disk drives (My Computer.) Right click on it and select FORMAT.
The likely reason this keeps happening is that these cards weren't formatted in the camera when you first got them. However, don't do so just yet as formatting also erases the card. If you are using a memory card, take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that are available to help you recover your photos. This blog article reviews and outlines several of the better ones. Now AFTER you've recovered the photos, format the cards IN THE CAMERA USING THE CAMERAS FORMAT FEATURE. Look for it, it's located under the "tools" menu (look for the item stating the card's memory capacity). This should rejuvenate both cards, and prevent reoccurrence.
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
if u remove the card while the cam is on then it sometimes occurs the files may get corrupted so copy all the photo to a computer then format the card then copy it again to the card then insert it to your cam all cam pics are in jpeg extension so check the extension of the pics while copying to your card.
