it happened last night when i was shooting my nephew on his birthday. all the shoots seemed faithfully recorded onto the smart media card. but when i was reviewing the shots taken in play mode, the photos became corrupted with green lines all across the lcd.

i loaded the card onto my pc via a card reader, almost all the photos became corrupted. i swapped another card to check if it's a card failure, the same problem happened. looks like my camera has gone busted.

anyone got this similar encounter like mine on your camera before?

i use the cards for storing computer files using my card reader like a thumb drive. could this have corrupted my cards?

i will try again using a virgin card tonight to determine if it is my camera that has gone busted or my cards.
