Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera ?

Incompatible JPEG format

\015 I used my memory card to download some pictures on to my computer. When I replaced the memory card, many of my pictures were gone and a large question mark displayed-Incompatible JPEG format written beneath it. What has happened and how do I fix this?\015

Answers :

Since i've read so many many site and they didn't give me the right solutions,I just simply view the picture in the computer and took the photo with\015\012my camera again. Don't worry,cannon is a good camera, it won't blur\015\012your pics from the computer. And for anybody who is going try my simple\015\012way,what i did(detaily) was turn off the light outside so the comp\015\012won't be "shine" like a mirror , turn off the flash of the camera and\015\012turn down the light of the computer about 50% so the pic we took won't\015\012be too bright :P I always did it the most basic and lamest way. Who\015\012knows? It works for me.
I have the same problem. I didn't understand the suggested solution. I downloaded pictures from the memory card to the computer using the software supplied by Canon. When the memory card is replaced in the camera I get the "incompatible jpeg format" error message and no picture is displayed. I did not move a modified or edited picture from the computer to the memory card, so I don't understand why I can't view the original picture in the camera. I may also be getting this error message on photos that I did not download to the computer. How can I view these files? Are they now lost?
