Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera ?

"Unidentified Image" I took a bunch of pictures and now about 15 of them say "Corrupted Data" when I go to view them. A few of them say "Unidentified Image" and I can still view the picture. When I loaded them all on my PC, those that say "corrupted Data" or "Unidentified Image" loaded, but no program will open them. Even the ones that I am still able to view the picture. I believe all these pictures are my close up shots, too. Hmmmm... is there any solution to being able to open these pics


Answers :

After your memory card recovery software has successfully retrieved your images either try reformatting on a low level format and or burn your SD card and buy a new one. A few bucks on a new card should save much angst at lost or corrupted images.
You need some image recovery software that will fix the files that are corrupted

I cannot manually delete any of the pictures from the camera, since nothing shows up on the monitor except for that frozen weird design. It will still take p

No matter how clear and crisp the image is in the view finder. After the photo is taken and loaded into PS4. The image is blurry and unsharp. I have reset all camera settings to factory with Canon. And I am still getting the same results. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
