Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD960 IS Digital Camera ?

I will take a picture. A day later I go back to view it on my camera and there will be some pictures missing and it will say incompatible JPEG with a question mark on the screen. Where is my picture?


Answers :

Hi.

First try to recover any images you want to keep with a program like the one you can download here, which is free:-

http://www.easy-flash-recovery.com/

Then try to format the card or memory, either by:-

1.) Format the internal memory or memory card (whichever has the problem) by using the menus in the camera, such as:- Review menu, Setup> Format

or if if that fails and you are using a card:-

2.) Format by inserting the card into the PC or using a card reader.
Then right click on the memory card's icon in the 'My Computer' window to bring up the format option, then format the card again in the camera itself to ensure compatibility.

Hope that helps. Regards
