Corrupted data


New Member
I am using the s50 with a 1 gb memory card. I took 100 pictures was able to review some then got
a corrupted data message and when I downloaded to
my laptop 10 of the best pictures were not there. The camera just arrived and I hope the card isn't deffective. Can anyone help?


I have had corrupted data on a Canon brand flash card. Sometimes the cards can be should contact the manufacturer of the card. Also, just as a tip, I have realized that it is best to purchase several 256mb cards (which hold approx. 88 images)rather than a 1gb card...the reason is because if you DO lose the images, you haven't lost ALL of the images (i.e.; all your eggs in one basket...)
