Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I've got a Fuji Finepix s700 and it's started throwing an error when I'm importing files to iPhoto -- files can't be imported, unrecognizable file type or may not contain valid data. This is happening with both .jpg and .avi files, I can't see a pattern to which files are deemed unrecognizable (they're not always consecutive or at the beginning or end of the import). I've tried a new memory card, still getting the problem (though the error does not happen with every upload). It happens when I

Answers :


If you are sure that the camera is recording files with a bad header, then there is a problem with camera firmware.

Try updating the firmware follow instructions here.

If that does not work, then the camera logic board must be replaced.

In that case call Fuji and see if they are aware of this problem, if this is a factory defect, then the camera will be replaced.


If this only happens when importing files to iPhoto, then I would assume that this is only a problem with iPhoto.
Another thing, which might be worth checking, is whether the USB cable connecting the Finepix s700 to the computer is defective or not. If you are using the same cable when you connect the camera & when you connect the card reader, then I would suspect that the cable is defective. It is worth trying another cable & see if it solves the problem.
In all cases, please keep me informed with the result, so that I could help you solve the problem.

Importing Error When I try to import pictures from my camera onto my computer,  once the import starts an error pops up saying: "The following error occurred while importing DSC...JPG: The system cannot find the path specified."  It asks what I would like to do and gives three options: "Try again", "Skip this file", or "Skip all files with errors".  I tried all three- "Try again" = the error popped up again . "Skip this file" = the same thing happened with the next picture . "Skip all files

Invalid File... Hi, everyone... Recently, it's happening the following error when I try to download the photos from the camera to the computer: Error reading DSCxxxx.JPG: Invalid Parameters.

I have a Nikon S200 digital camera. I took some pictures last night, using the flash. When I flicked back through them, I found a problem.
