Answers :

Unrecognized file format usually means that the image was taken using another camera.

\015\012If this is not the case, you may try a card reader and it may be a faulty memory card. Once you have backed up your images, try to format the card in the camera itself (if Kodak has that feature-I'm sure it's in the menu) and try again to use it. Formatting the card in the camera may solve the problem in the future.

Pictures Lost??? We have a large number of pics on our 1GB memory card in our camera. However after unsuccessfully trying to transfer images onto file via the olympus master software, the pictures cannot be viewed on the camera. They don't seem to be erased, as only 10 pictures can still be taken on the memory card (in HQ format). If they were erased there'd be more space available? These pictures are very valuable but I cannot work out where they have gone to. I haven't pressed the Erase All bu

I have a Casio EZ-Z1050 10.1 megapixel digital camera and am very pleased with it. I use a 2Gb memory chip with it, however, some snaps have gotten into the cameras on board memory and I cannot seem to delete them. If I look via the camera it displays a No files message but if I download via USB all the pictures I don't want keep re-appearing. Advice as to how to delete from on the camera's on board memory would be very gratefully received. Thank you. Ron Bernstein.
