Looking for your technical opinion: This image problem is occurring every so often now. Is it the G10 camera itself or the memory card?

Try another card. If it still happens then it's the camera.

More details would be helpful. How are you downloading your images? What computer and OS are you using? Have you tried downloading the image a second time? Also, what brand of card....has it ever been formatted?

Each of the corrupted images had been downloaded only once via a Lexar multi-card reader capable of SDHC format cards. Images are always cleared from the card in the Lexar Reader by deleting via Windows Explorer first then the SDHC card is formatted in camera. PC computer. Windows XP Service pack 3. Kingston SDHC card.

That looks a lot like a corrupted JPEG which is often the memory card but sometimes the card reader.

Do they look like that on the LCD of the camera, or just on the computer?

Lexar card readers have been know to have issues with XPSP3 and SD cards. You can try going to Piriform.com and downloading a utility called Recuva. An excellent file recovery tool....you might be able to save the file yet.

or simply try connecting the camera to the usb and download with zoombrowser straight from the camera and hence leave out the card reader

That was it... direct USB connection resulted in the suspect files transferring perfectly without issue. The problem seems to reside in the Lexar reader. Thank you.

The images look fine in camera.... A direct USB connection resulted in the suspect files transferring perfectly without issue. The problem seems to reside in the Lexar reader.

I too had problems with a recent Lexar reader. It worked fine with CF and Pro-Duo (MS) cards but sometimes locked up when reading an SDHC card. I replaced it with a Kodak reader and have had zero problems but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.:p

This looks like the card to me. I've seen this a bunch of times... especially older cards.
