Well when i take a picture, it takes it. but when i try and take another picture, it just beeps three time. and then i tried to turn it off, and it wont do that either. it just says "please wait for your camera to finish recording" but im not recording anything. and i waited for a bit to see what happened. and all it says not is "system error" in red. the only way to turn it off is to take the battery out. i tried to reset it. but nothing is working...

"Invisible" Pictures I just took a day's worth of pictures, and while I can view all of them on the camera in viewer mode, about 18 are simply missing when I hook the memory card up to the computer.

I own a Canon EOS Rebel XTi. This camera is unpredictable; i.e., I never know when it will decide not to record an image. I have reset it many times to the manufacturer's default settings, and then it SOMETIMES works, but then for some reason stops recording images. I have started to always carry a second camera (a point & shoot). However I am enrolled in a number of photography classes in the new year where I need an SLR. Is this camera issue serious or something I can fix? Thanks.

I can only turn on my Cybershot DSC-N2 while the camera is in playback mode. I can look at the pictures and videos and change settings with no problem.. but when I try to switch to camera or video record mode the camera turns off by itself. Sometimes the lens will come out and then the camera powers down with the lens stuck out. Other times it just shuts off before the lens even has a chance to come out. The camera has never been dropped or damaged.
