Having problems with your Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera ?

How does corrupted photos get corrupted in the first place?


Answers :

If you connect the camera to a computer for download and then pull the USB cord before using the "safely remove hardware" function, the card and sometimes even the camera can get corrupted. Never formatting the card in the camera on a regular basis after downloading can eventually corrupt the card. Turning off the camera before it completes writing to the card will corrupt the pics.

Photos unread I have an Olympus Stylus 720 SW with the same problem. When I upload photos, some are corrupted and are chopped with parts of the photo misplaced. It has nothing to do with computer as it does this on all computers. I'm not using a reader, but simply uploading VIA USB cable. Some photos are so corrupted, I cannot even get a partial view of the choppy remnant of the photo taken. Could this be a memory card problem or a camera problem? I don't know.


Use a card reader to download your pictures. It may solve the problem. After you do, format the card in the camera. Be sure you use a high quality card. ... Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera

Double Images. Under natural light, low light, basically any light... the images will show the correct photo and then a moment later another photo will superimpose itself on the first image. Only one photo. One .jpg when transferring to the computer and I can't get the photo to separate. Some are really great photos... if not for that extra photo on top of it. My problem sounds like the same as the other poster.

We are now on our 3rd 5.0 bushnell night sentry camera and the night pictures are black. With the second camera, we might get the first picture where the flash goes off, but the subsequent ones are black. We have replaced batteries and also have a solar panel. We did use this same model of camera last winter and were getting beautiful night pictures so we decided to get a second one. Day photos are beautiful. Help!


OK, I think that this is a problem with the flash not working correctly, and you are within the warranty period, I'm hoping, so that you can get it replaced.\015\012\015\012Power shouldn't be an issue since you have a solar panel.\ ... Bushnell Trail Sentry 11-9200 Digital Camera

I have a Canon Ixus 700 with a 2GB SD card. I dont know why, but sometimes after I take a picture it deletes the previous ones. For instance, I have taken 20 pictures, everything ok, when I take the 21st it could happen that all the pictures get corrupted (including the last one), I get the first 10 and the last one or I loss all previous and only get the last one I took. I have checked the SD card, changed it, formatted it, etc and it still happens randomly. It is frustrating and I dont feel co

Sony DSC-W70 "File Error", blue screen when viewing pics... Please help. I took many photos last week while in Turkey, and the last ten I cannot view.

According to specifications the built-in memory should hold 125, 19 or 12 pictures, depending on quality.

Grainy, image I bought my Riccoh Caplio GX 5.1 mp three years ago. At first it took the best pictures I could wish for, but for monyhs now I am getting very variable results. Some photos are OK, but many are grainy, "pixleated" - having tiny spots of the primary colours throughout the image. There doesn't seem to be any one situation when this happens. It can be inside, outside, flash or none. The pictures also seem to be a lot darker, so photos taken inside or at night are much poorer quality,


You might have changed the settings; ISO setting too high or something else, just reset it to factory settings if you can't figure out ISO. ... Ricoh Caplio GX Digital Camera

Process Cropping For the very first time I placed an order for prints with Snapfish. Most of my images had been edited by me more or less with Photoshop. There is a place at the end of the ordering process where they let you know how some images will be cropped (on the top and bottom). I didn't want mine cropped so I choose to have the photos printed to a slightly smaller size where the cropping would not be necessary. Well, I received my prints and found that some were cropped anyway, and, of
