    I think it is a recording problem due to weak battery.

    I really don't know what's the problem but would advice that you do not store photos in your memory card for too long. Best transfer them to external hard disk and delete. After deletion of photos best you format your memory card before you use it again. Unless you use zero recovery software to wipe photos from you memory cards most photos taken and stored in your memory card can be recovered by using recovey software.

    Your JPEG file is corrupted. Repeated opening/saving can corrupt the file. This has nothing to do with the card or your camera or PC. Repeated formatting the card will also shorten the lifespan of the card as it has a fixed read/write lifespan.

    i converted the picture from NEF to JPG. originally the photo is already like this in NEF after i edited.
    i realised that the lifespan is limited only recently. will stop reformatting my card after today.

    Not late to learn something important...and stop formatting card despite what others say or swear by it.

    Use Lightroom to view the NEF file directly and see whether it is corrupted. If it is, then it's better to throw your card away or use it for non critical photoshoots. For me, I usually throw them away (yup, it's expensive to do that but no choice)

    How do you format your memory card, may I ask? Thru comp or DSLR?

    It does look a little like a faulty card.... might wanna send for servicing if it has warranty.

    btw you should use your camera to format the card and try again.

    If problem persist, try your card on another camera and see the result.

    if both these tests have the same problem then the problem is the card.

    Also try use another card on your camera if it does have the same result then your camera is causing the problem.
