Hi.. not sure if this is the right place but can someone give some guidance to a newbie here pl? :embrass:
I cant download my shots from the SD card into my pc but I can review them in my camera. What's wrong? And I cant copy them too.. got this error message about some I/O problem. But some shots taken earlier were fine and can be viewed and downloaded. Is it a faulty SD card? Would appreciate some enlightenment please. Thanks !

what's your method of download? do you use a cable to connect the camera to pc or you use an external memory card reader?

Hi.. my laptop has a supplied card reader. Problem is, it can read and download pics taken few days ago, but lately some pics taken on a different occassion wont open up. They are all saved in the same folder. So, my reader will read up to a certain no. of shots and then get stuck with the rest.

but those pics 'taken on a different occasion' manage to show up on the camera itself?

u can try using an external usb card reader to test the card.
u can connect ur camera via the suppiled cable to ur PC and use the camera as a card reader.

see whether this 2 methods work for u.

Hi guys.. thanks for response. I managed to set up transfer using the camera via the supplied cable. The transfer rate was very fast :sweat:

Guess it must be the problematic card reader... making its own decision to transfer what it wants. I'll probably get a new card reader to do the job instead of using my camera. Hope to get good bargain at the IT show next week :)

good to know you have found and solved your problem.

there are various card readers in the market, some costing a few dollars to tens of dollars due to the higher transfer rate.

hi,

i do have this problem only recently.. i think it's the SD card problem rather than the reader..cos i normally use Scandisk as my memory card, but only recently due to a rush, i have gotten another brand, which gives me this problem.. It can't even be formatted when i first wanted to use it..

i cant stand this error..
its called Sandisk (note the spelling!) :bsmile:

yep, sometimes it is the card's fault. if u cant seem to access the card using different card readers/cameras/computers, its most probably the card's fault.

:think: hmm.. that is quite a problem. I am using Toshiba (2G). Should be reliable I think? That card has given me this problem twice. Anyone has recommendations on a reliable card?
