error message...:this image cannot be enlarged"

I'm getting this message erratically. It seems to enlarge the instant the image shows up on the LCD, then it won't enlarge anymore, and continues to give me that error message.
any help other than the already suggested SD card corruption?

Are you sure it is not a video?
I just got caught with that myself today.

The behavior you describe makes me think not.. but its just funny that I saw this myself for the first time today.
For me, it was a video.

If it is a photo, I have no other suggestion. But interested in hearing any other ideas.
