Corrupted files on camera media card

  jack 11:29 28 Oct 2007

In a previous post click here
I discussed corrupted files image files on a CD.
It appeared that the files on the CD came from two different cameras and the the corrupted files [25 of them] came from a higher mega-pixel camera [each 2.5 Mb as opposed to the majority of 1.5 Mb]
Of the 25 I managed to retrieve 10, with Iso Buster and Bad Copy pro .
Some of those rescued appeared to be two images combined
Does any one remember getting prints from film back from the processor like that- where perhaps the film did not wind on properly?
The two images sort of flowed into each other.
What sort of fault would cause that.?

The remainder being grey squares- some with an odd line or two.
Irfanview reported such files could not read the header.

I would like to report back to the disks owner what a likely cause could be'
A duff card or malfunctioning camera.
Any suggestion how I may be able to determine this with the files I have or should I ask to see the Card/Camera?

Looks like a Camera problem rather than the card. Perhaps card not fully inserted, if that is possible without the user noticing.

Having loaded Irfanview Plug in set and taken a 'deeper' look the the image info
Things got more puzzling
It appears that all images were taken with the same camera- Nikon E8800 The image recorded on camera are all 7.5 MP
But 2 image 'types' and sizes appear on the CD
DSC at 1.5 MB and EDSC at 2.93
and it is the larger images that are all corrupt
So this would seem to a camera setting?
or what?

Could be that the person concerned has tried to delete the photo files whilst the camera or memory card reader was still connected to the computer system.

Thanks Stuartli
I have those - but of course not the Card - I am thinking of asking about getting hold of the card
We shall see.
