Issues viewing pictures from K-r on the computer


Hi all,

I'm new to the thread and this is my first post! I recently became a proud owner of the Pentax K-r and I have been able to test it recently at my brothers wedding and this week while in London through work.

On the whole I have been delighted with the camera so far and I am just trying to get a feel for it.

I've noticed that when I take the pictures off the camera - either by putting my SD card straight into my computer, or via the supplied USB cable I am finding that every so often one of my images appears split - i.e. the left hand side of the picture appears on the right.

When I look at the pictures on the camera (i.e. through the LCD) they are fine and appear as they should be but not on the computer.

I have tried loading the pictures using Elements 9 and the software supplied by Pentax with the K-r but the pictures still come out split.

Has anybody had this happen to them and can you stop it from happening or at the very least fix the images?

Any help/advice will be very much appreciated. For reference the memory card i'm using is an Invo8 4Gb SDHC card.

I would upload some examples but I'm not sure how to do it - when I try my page keeps coming up with a security error.

Thanks,

Adam

This appears to be a data corruption issue, ie. failure to write and save images correctly on the Card, so they can't be read back and rendered correctly.

It's not uncommon, like Hard Disks, flash media cards will occasionally be faulty from the start or fail in ongoing use; and I suggest you obtain a good known reliable class 6 grade Card and use that. Do some general research on the 'net first and don't judge by fastest speed or high price!
Most of the better reliable cards are also quite modestly priced.

Sorry but I don't think it would be possible (or practical) to salvage your existing corrupted images on that card.

When you say pictures; you mean all the pictures or some of them? I have never seen that before, either you can read it or you can't....
