Having problems with your Fuji FinePix F20 Digital Camera ?

Photos automatically erased.

\015 At some moment a huge part of the photos I've taken on my F20 have been erased as if by the camera itself, while I was taking new ones. Even more strange - they were random photos. Regarding those which were left (about 20%) - when I copy them to my computer I cannot rotate them, so it is as if they lost some of their attributes. Anyone have a clue what could have happened and whether it can be undone?\015

Use a card reader to download your pictures to a folder you create on your desktop. Open the folder and see if you have all your pictures. Right-click one of them and select properties. Does it say "read only" at the bottom? Change that to something else and you should be able to work with them again.

When my memory card ran out of space on my Olympus Digital E 500, I put in a new card. A "card error" message appeared on the screen. This has never happened before. Now neither card works and when I try to download the photos it asks me if I want to format the card. I assume that if I say "yes" and do format it, that it will erase all my photos. Is that correct?

I am having problems with the flash working on my camera. It does not seem to matter if it is in automatic or manual modes. When I take a picture in either mode, when a flash is needed, the flash icon just blinks on the display. The camera will not take any photo when this is happening. The only way I can get my camera to take a photo is manually set the flash to off. Why is this happening?

Camera takes photos without actually "focusing" on the object. Seems their is no "prefocus" with the button. As soon as you touch the focus button, the camera automatically takes the photo. When the camera was working correctly, you'd push the focus button half way down and then it would do it's job. Now it just takes the shot if you barely even touch the button. Not good...........
