Would appreciate someone who can help us with this problem.

Recent my bro went for a trip and took some pictures. He tried to upload his pics using a card reader and apparently, it went bonkers. As a result, when he placed the card back to the camera, there were 4 duplicates of every invidual photos. The card itself was original had 600+ photos but after duplicating, he had 100+ photos but with 500+ duplicates.

The rest of the photos seems to be replaced by the duplicates. Is there anyone who had the same experience and can share no how to resolve this matter?

:cry:

So just delete away the duplicates & format the card & hope nothing is wrong

oh sorry mis-read your problems.
Does the files size of the photos similar to that of the whole card data size used?

It seems that the card reader created 4 copies of 1 pic for the 1st 100+ pics and filled up the whole card. The rest of the images are gone.. *sigh*

:dunno:
