Kind of like this: https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1276253

If you just read the first and last page, you can quickly skip all of the attempts to problem solve and work thru the process of elimination and find the solution. ;-)a

^^^ In MY case that was the issue, I'm not saying that's the OP's issue though.

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.

Exactly. Which is why for memory I only buy retail. I got mine at best buy.

Yup.. That is almost certainly data corruption. There are a lot of good ideas here, basically, you need to start attempting to isolate the problem. If you know someone else that is a canon shooter (or really anyone that has the ability to read your card) let them try to read the card to see if they see the corruption or if they get a clean image. If they see the corruption, it is the camera or the card, if they don't, it is your reader, computer, software...

If they see the corruption, it is the camera or the card, if they don't, it is your reader, computer, software...

Or you can do the troubleshooting entirely without a friend with a Canon (or assuming their camera takes a different type of memory card!)...
Here is a block diagram of your camera data flow. Somewhere along the flow is the problem, at any one of the numbered stages in the chart...

IMAGE: http://i69.photobucket.com/albums/i63/wiltonw/Principles/IOproblems_zps73c6be41.jpg


  1. The problem (not likely) is within the camera processing before it writes to the memory card
  2. or the memory card itself is bad...if you see the bad image on the camera LCD, the problem is #0 or #1.
  3. If the picture looks good on the camera LCD, the next problem can be in the USB port or on the USB cable (if you use direct camera-to-PC transfer)
  4. If the picture looks good on the camera LCD, the problem could be in your memory card reader, or it could be in the USB cable connecting the memory card reader to the PC,
  5. or the USB cable connecting the camera to the PC.


The key to puzzling this out is to swap out the next item in the daisy chain if you can, to see where the break in the data transfer is occurring. Start by suspecting Item 0 and ruling it out...
...by verifying Item 1 and viewing the image immediately after it is taken, reviewing it on the LCD.
If #1 good, swap out #3 with a borrowed one, if you can. If #3 works, try to swap out #4 if you can.
If you do not transfer data by plugging in the memory card into a reader, skip above and go to #2 and swap out #4.

By the time you are done, you will have isolated the breakdown in the data passing.

You need to give me OK to edit your image and repost! Keep POTN alive and well with member support https://photography-on-the.net/forum/donate.p​hp

I had that happen to me, was fine on the camera but not on the computer. Turned out the built in card reader on the computer was dying. I bought an external reader and then the pics transferred over just fine and I'm still using the same card with no problems 2 years later.

Have you tried copying the file directly from the card, in Windows Explorer, to your computer? It does look like a upload problem.

I could be wrong...but I've had this happen a couple of times over the years and found that it was an upload issue

Agreed.. Yes, there are many ways to go about isolating the problem and determine the where the fault is by process of elimination.

Sometimes these exercises are kind of fun, sometime are are a real PITA.
The bad news, though, is that something is broken; hopefully the cheapest component.

You also can't assume the simplest component in the chain is safe -- I've seen plenty of bad cables cause problems too.

I don't know but it's awesome and you should order up a very large print of it.

Haha... like huge size to cover a wall.

I agree it could be card/usb cable/reader/pc/ alot of crap.

I'll just keep an eye on it for now.
