Image loss


Link Posted 30/08/2010 - 20:19
Did a short studio shoot (50 images) with my K-x and a Fuji 2GB card yesterday. All images recorded well and were uploaded to my pc and left on the card. Today with the same camera/card combination I did a location shoot. As one does, the images were reviewed on the LCD at regular intervals and all seemed to be going as per normal. However, when I came to upload them to my pc, the camera generated file was there, but not a single image. Any ideas as to what the problem might be would be gratefully received. Thanks

How were you uploading ?

If direct from the camera by wire try using a card reader

Try using a different USB port on the PC

Check you haven't accidentally locked the card

Just a few thoughts for starters

It could be a faulty card or a faulty card reader. In my previous laptop every card I inserted (directly into the laptop) became corrupted, yet was still fine physically.

By only ever using a cable connected to the camera I never had the same problem again.

If you can take a picture then see it in the preview on the camera it is unlikely to be a fault with the camera or the card.

Thanks for the reply.... The card is definitely not locked...I've tried both the camera/pc link cable, two different card readers and alternative USB ports... but nothing. I've also tried reviewing them in camera on the LCD... and although yesterdays images are still there's no sign of todays. Further I've checked the indicated remaining image total and it doesn't add up. There are only 63 retrievable images on the card, which should leave about 213 more available. The indicated figure is 121.

Thanks.. I downloaded Recuva... looks like a useful programme but unfortunately it didn't find anything.. The loss of the images is no big deal per se.. It's just the fact that it happened and I don't know why and whether or not it will happen again that's worrying. At this time I can do more than quarantined the suspect card... and hope..

Not a Dell by any chance?

Had exactly the same problem.
