No I think not, I had changed the batteries a couple of hours earlier on, and had taken about 60 shots when the failure occured.

Thanks Quension for the insight.

Sadly though, I was NOT doing anything else than shooting when it happened - right during a photo "session" at a friend's birthday.

I had placed the spare batteries I always carry in case the "rechargeable" ones are flat. Maybe this could have caused the error, though I doubt it because I use them at most an hour every 2-3 month. The only trouble could be that they are 10 month old.

Other than that, I always check every single shot I take, and usually don't turn the camera off every time, I find its power saving ability very convenient.

Hi all

I've just had the problem with my K200D and a SDHC card Transcend 4GB class 6, many shots, but not all, lost after an error message (cannot display picture, or pictured not stored).

I remembered having similar problem, last summer (a few days after receiving my K200D), but then it was only 1 image lost.

Now the interesting stuff:

I had shot all day, pictures were stored in \DCIM\100PENTX. At some point the K200D created a new folder \DCIM\101PENTX. My guess is that all pictures in the first folder were kept, and all pictures in the 2nd folder were lost. They were available and correctly stored (I kept checking them, truned the camera on and off several times) until 1 error, that erased backwards all the shots in the folder.

I'm thinking this because the \DCIM\101PENTX still contains one 2GB (huge) file named "IMGP." which I guess contains all my lost shots.
The used space of the card (drive properties) 3.58 GB, free space is 137 MB.
The size of DCIM is 4.37 GB (incoherent).

So I guess the error occured because the camera did not "see" that the card was full but tried to record additional pictures, and screwed the file system.

Now I'm trying to recover the files, with no success yet.
