Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I took many pictures yesterday, as i connected it to the computer, it says no valid pictures to view. i really need them. im actually very disappointed.


Answers :

Have you tried opening the chip as an external storage device in windows explorer? I suspect that the photos are all there but in a folder that the automatic viewer/downloader does not recognize. You should be able to do this even using the camera's USB connection. If not, try using your card reader.

Disc Error I'm in desperate need of your help. I tool almost 100 pictures at a friend's bridal shower.

No picture I have a FinePix S2 Pro that I have had a couple years. Yesterday when I took pictures with it every picture is black when viewed on the LCD screen. The lens cap is off and I have tried several different lenses and memory cards, adjusted the ISO, tried it with and without a flash, but still the same result. I can view previously recorded pictures, so I know its not the LCD screen. Could the CCD have gone bad? Any thoughts by anyone?
