Hey guys, sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong forum, but this is kinda freaking me out...

I shot a powerlifting competition for a buddy of mine yesterday. Canon 50D, all images shot in RAW. They all look perfect on the camera. I dumped them onto my computer, opened them up with Picasa, and this is what I get:

IMAGE: http://lh3.ggpht.com/_MRVP6xWBoIk/S942g1oNTNI/AAAAAAAAAco/DnvrPIL318E/s800/WHAT%20HAPPENED.jpg

Some of them look fine initially, but after 5-10 seconds of looking at them, they either go all 70's disco colors on me, or just go completely black.

I know it's kind of vague, but does anybody have ANY idea what the crap is happening to my images?!

Does it do the same in other programs as well?

Bugger! Sounds like you've got a bad card.

I've had a couple of shots here and there do it but never anything to that extent. I would say it is time to nuke that card and get a new. I would check the website of the card maker to see if they have support for anything of this nature, might cost something so it is dependent upon how valuable these are to you. I know they can provide rescue software for deleted images but I don't know if they can help in this respect.


My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.

Did you try putting the card back into your camera and veiw them there? Does the camera see them? Are they normal? If so, maybe just reboot the computer and try to transfer them again.

God, I'm hoping this is all it is... The camera sees them and they look perfect on there. I'll try this and see what happens...

Before giving up and ditching the card try these:
1) another means of transfer (if used card reader, try another; if used wire try card reader).
2) another computer

good luck, ben.

I used a cable. I just pulled the card from the camera and put it into a card reader, gonna try it that way...

I also just discovered that, when looking at the images straight off of the card, there's no distortion or corruption. I'm hoping it was just a major fluke...

That's what happened. The cable must have messed everything up.

Thanks for the help everybody, I really appreciate it!

Another possibility would be a bad HDD.
So test that and BACK UP NOW.

Then again, bad cable is more likely.

It probably is the card so I'd ditch it. The strange thing though is you may be able to use a different method of removing the images from the card and it could be fine.

If you used a card reader then this time hook a cable straight to the camera and pull them that way.
