If I keep the folder open more and more will start apearing like this and sometimes there is lines through them. What causes this? I have been doing digital photography for years and it only started happening the last few every now and then.

Corrupted card? Try with a different card and see what happens.

Other than a corrupted card, it could also be the card reader.
Place the card back in the camera, and then try downloading to your computer directly from the camera using the USB interface cable that was included with your camera.

As in the folder on your computer?

The photos show signs of corruption. If you mean the folder on your computer, it likely means your hard drive is dying.

I have to agree with the others, something is causing file corruption. My (computer)professional suggestion would be to try the card reader/USB interface on A DIFFERENT MACHINE to see if that's where the corruption is coming from. Leave that machine off until you either backup important files or determine a faulty card or reader.

Thank you for your suggestions. I will try that. My reader was cheap. But the card is new. The computer is only 6 m old.

Copy the existing files to the computer via the reader or camera
Format the card in the camera
Reshoot and try to transfer it to the camera

This happened to me this summer. And this helped

After every transfer is done
I check that the files looks OK
Then I re-format the card from the camera
Every time.

The last time I saw anything like that the CF card was on the cusp of permanent failure.

The card was 5 years old.

Additionally, Make sure you're not just pulling the card out from the card reader without properly ejecting it first.
Don't know about Mac, but if you're using Windows, you can open the explorer window, Rght Click on the Drive and then select Eject>

Tim, I think the idea of "hot-swapping" devices causing problems went away a long time ago -- I've never had a problem with just taking out and inserting cards and other USB devices. But certainly that would have nothing to do with the problem the OP has posted!
