I'd start by trashing the memory card, making sure the replacement card is not a cheap off-brand one and being sure to format the card in the camera prior to use.

Corrupted image file by the look of it.

You just need to narrow down the source of the corruption. Do you see this whilst the card is still in the camera, on the screen, before you try and download? If so it is likely a fault in your memory card, or possibly a camera fault.

If the images were fine in the camera, but like that on your computer it is more likely to be a faulty card reader, or connecting cable that is causing the problem, but it could also be a software issue on the computer itself.

You can try different cards, different readers etc., try and eliminate possibilities until you are sure where the images are getting corrupted.

That's weird. Does it look like that on the LCD screen when you review the image on the camera or is it like this only after you upload and/or PP?

Whilst a faulty card is a quite strong possibility, this sort of thing is also quite commonly caused by a faulty (or cheap) card reader or cable. I certainly wouldn't start by throwing out what is quite possibly a perfectly good card. At least find out if it is the card at fault first.

Equally of course, I wouldn't be using that card for any important shoots either, not until it has been cleared of blame.

Sorry sandpiper, your post didn't show up on my monitor until my comment posted. I had a similar issue last year and figured out it was due to a known glitch in PS when you convert a color image to B&W and save it. I had to click on the "RBG" box after the conversion and just before I saved the image to prevent this from happening.

I use a Trandscend 3.0 external reader. My memory is Sandisk Extreme 95MB/s so it is indeed not any off brand.

I know the image was fine on camera but is now junk. I usually take doubles so I didn't lose the image nor was it anything special as this shot was me really jacking around however I do believe the image got corrupted at import.

This has happen once before I know. I'll have to keep an eye on it.

Good luck! It can be a very aggravating process trying to determine the source of the problem. It ended up taking us here on POTN a while to figure out my issue and it even took them a while to figure out the problem over on the Adobe forum-which I was eventually advised to go to. I hope you can nail down the exact problem quickly and soon!

It is most likely a fault in the card reader or the cable then, good brands reduce the chance of faults developing but do not rule them out, even the best gear can go bad.

I can't comment on Fitness Freaks PS issue as it has never happened to me when I've done mono conversions. Obviously though, if you had done such a conversion on the image just before it went bad (presumably it would have been fine after download or you wouldn't be converting the image to mono) then that is the likely answer.

Keep in mind that a good jpeg preview doesn't mean the rest of the RAW/jpeg file is also good.

If the preview is good in camera and bad on the computer then it's most like something in the transfer chain(card to drive), card reader or cable are most common failure points.

I cannot see the image you are all discussing. How does it appear?

Same old corrupted look that people post all the time, it is all discolored and discombobulated. In a vast majority of the situations, it is either a corrupted card, or bad card reader/file transfer.

Even if a Sandisk is being used, one has to be careful where they bought it, because it is the most popular card to be counterfeited, or at least was just a few years ago.
