I have seen this problem with generic SD memory cards so it could be a faulty memory stick. Try to get a replacement. If you want to try to recover the pictures you have taken, I suggest Zero Assumption Recovery (Google for it). Check to see if it is compatible with your camera before downloading.

Sony DSC-W70 "File Error", blue screen when viewing pics... Please help. I took many photos last week while in Turkey, and the last ten I cannot view. When attempting to view on the LCD camera screen I get a blue screen with a "File Error" message. I downloaded them to my computer and the CyberShot Viewer software that came with the camera, as well as the Windows photo program will not open the photos. I'm assuming that for some reason these files are corrupted. The file names look correct, endi

Lost Pictures I took a few pictures one night. Two days later I viewed these photos and they were on the camera. The battery was exhausted. I got a little juice in the camera and realized that one photo disappeared. I took a shot and the last set of pictures that I had just viewed simply disappeared. I put my memory card into another camera and the pictures were not there either. Help!! I have a CoolPix 10.

I took about 30 photos over five days. Everything worked until the last day, when I could only see the last 3 photos I took the last day. All the others have disappeared. I checked my card on my computer when I got home, but same results. I did do some re-organizing of features during that time, but I never deleted anything. I just did some test shots and my camera is working fine, displaying my last shots, but I am worried that I may lose my photos again somehow.

I just got my camera back from Canon but it still isn't working right! I took it in because when I turned it on it said NO CF CARD. They fixed the metal prongs. Now, it still doesn't work to store or view photos on the camera without a cf card. I inserted my old CF (undamaged card) and formatted it and now it seems to take photos BUT nothing shows on my camera viewfinder when I go to take the photos. It shows I have over 3000 photos on my card but they will not display. Help!

My SD800IS was working fine while in the very hot/humid environment of Yap. I took it out of my air conditioned room and went to take a picture almost immediately. The view finder, the LCD image and the lens were all fogged. The camera worked but took foggy images. Eventually the fog cleared and my photos were fine but most of the controls no longer work. I can change the selector knob that determines if the camera is on auto, manual, video or display modes but it won't zoom and the program
The foggy images and lens was due to condensation caused by the camera's surfaces being cold in a humid/moist environment. Usually this happens and goes away without issue. If you believe issues are continuing, consider placing the camera completely ... Canon Digital Cameras

My LCD goes partially black when I turn the camera on and shows a diagonal display of the photo from the upper left hand to lower right hand corners. The amount not black is not sufficient to take photos. I can make the LCD give a full display if I "jiggle" the photo settings devise from view to photo. I have tried this about thirty times and it always restores the LCD. I asked Canon Service Tech Support if the problem merited repair. Of course they said yes, but the flat rate they charge
