Having problems with your Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera ?

Can not play back image. Box with yellow ? (question mark)

\015 My mother-in-law purchased a new Canon EOS-40D and has only used it a few times. After shooting her daughters wedding her pictures were copied to my wife's laptop. However the orginal pictures were not deleted from the CF card. When she went to view her pictures on her camera she received an error message on some of the pictures (at one point 10 in a row) that stated "Can not play back image". There was also a bow with a yellow "?" (question mark). What would cause this and how would she resolve this issue?\015

We have just got a Wii and the kids have changed something so when we go back to the DVD it plays with the people looking green. I think they have changed the cords connecting into the TV. They say they never actually touched the DVD player. There are five cords - red, yellow, white then a green and blue. When you move the blue one it changes it all to black and white. Most are colour coded to the same colour as the plugs on the tv.

My g9 was playing video clips very fast. i changed the setting back to "standard" and can record/play new videos correctly; however, the video clip that i previously recorded before i changed the setting back to standard still plays back fast and that is the video i need. any suggestions?
