Problem with computer photos downloaded from camera
Hi, When i have taken pictures all looks good on the camera screen. When i download to the computer, some of the photos have the bottom quarter either blank or fuzzy. When i go into my pictures the thumbnails all look fine and complete, but when you click to enlarge, the same problem comes back? Any help would be really appreciated. Paul.

Re: problem with computer photos downloaded from camera
Try changing the resolution and picture size on the camera. Sometimes the camera settings and computer settings just don't read each other completely. Its starts out great but ends up fuzzy. Hope this helps.

1. Buy a card reader similar to the one pictured below. They're not expensive.
2. Create a folder on your desktop to use for downloading pictures.
3. Plug your camera card in one end of the reader and the plug into a USB port on your computer.
4. An icon may appear on your screen (you can double-click on it), Windows may offer to open the card for you....let them....if nothing appears on your screen, look in "my computer" for a "removable disc"...double-click on that.
5. When your picture files open, you will find the dates they were taken on the right....select and highlight the ones you want and drag and drop them into the folder you created. Done!
Fuzzy pictures are most often caused by not holding the camera steady enough it's the number one problem with shooting "Live View". It's not the camera nor the memory card it's the person that's taking the picture. Sorry if that was to blunt. Now saying that not all the pictures will be blurry if you are shooting in full auto the camera is correcting for different scenes and lighting conditions so some will have a faster shutter then others so faster shutter speed will produce less blurry pictures.
Okay the memory card thing you should never swap memory card between cameras unless you format them first. Formatting wold remove all the pictures so what you did was really not good, I can get into a whole lot of issues why not but to keep this short It's not a good idea to swap card.
Transferring pictures from the camera to the computer requires having the camera software installed on the computer first. There are different sequences or flow of connectivity between camera makes one thing for sure is you don't "just unplug it" that is a sure fire way of corrupting the memory card.
With the camera turned off . The proper transfer sequence for your camera will be listed in the owners manual but, normally you connect the cable (if you connected a cable between it was the right cable) to the computer USB port not a hub or a keyboard. Then to the camera digital out put which looks like a mini USB port. Some will have you turn it on while others will have you press the "playback" button for about a second when it come on there will be a download screen appear on the computer, read your manual.
Okay after you have downloaded the pictures to the computer you need to format the memory card sound all complicated now but as you get onto it it's like breathing, you just do it.
1) Check the resolution the camera is set to, it may, for some reason have been set to the lowest photo resolution.
2) Have a look on the Pentax web site, follow links to Support and or Downloads. There may be a firmware upgrade for your camera. There also may be a forum on the website where someone has had this problem before and resolved it.
Press the Home button. Touch the right-pointing arrow to enter Playback mode. Here you can view the photos and videos you've taken. You can also rotate, protect, delete and crop your photos and you can protect and delete videos. You can also go into thumbnail view to see more than one picture at a time.
I had a Camedia 560 and it had this problem. Take a picture and then look at your memory card or camera from the computer. I think you will see that there is a complicated structure of folders - the pictures are in one folder and there is some kind of index file in another folder. The camera cannot display pictures restored from the computer unless you restore the index files as well as the picture files. Sorry I can't remember the details, but one way to do it would be to copy every last thing on the memory card. Not very convenient.
This is a design flaw - my new camera doesn't have the problem and will display any picture I copy to it provided it was taken on the camera and not rotated or cropped. It doesn't mind other editing like putting a caption in the photo with a paint program. Panasonic Limix.
your memory card has a virus! try formatting using camera. make it a habit that whenever you reinsert the memory card in your camera format it first before taking shots, this will erase everything including virus!
