Yesterday I took some pictures and when I reviewed on camera they all show up. However when I go to download on computer, one photo wont show up. It just shows as an icon. It also has sound on it which I dont know how to remove. I have tried to copy the photo, but it copies with sound and I still cant open the image. Is there anything I can do to get image? I dont understand why it shows up on the camera, but I cant transfer it off the card. Help!
