Well, it's a "corrupt" image!

What we don't know is how/where the corruption happened. It could be in the card, in the card reader, in the port to the computer, in the hard drive...welcome to the world of image/electronic trouble-shooting!

If all the images look like that, it could also be the sensor.
I had that happen to me on an old P&S camera in the past.

It could also be the camera firmware having a bad day and just goofing it, for a once-in-a-million failure. Or something that hurts a number of images until the camera is restarted - possibly by removing the batteries. But my bet is more on something that happened in the camera than on the transfer.

Not the sensor, because the preview shows the full photo. When the file gets sorted it shows that. It was just that photo. Another had a corrupt file error, but the rest are good. It was like that in DPP and in LR5

It's "any one of the above", one of the first things I'd try is a new memory card, shot a whole bunch of shots, see if the problem repeats. If not, go back to the old card and see if it repeats. If it does not, well, it makes things tougher to troubleshoot "from the get-go", but if it does then, step-by-step, walk through your whole process and the hardware involved. Actually, the USB cables can go bad, and they're easy to replace and check, the card reader can go bad (unless you're using a direct camera/computer connection), really, it can be anything!

But, like I said, getting the problem to repeat itself is pretty important, first with the original card/setup, and then take it from there!

These high-tech systems can do odd things! Fortunately many things have an "easy fix", although...not always!:)

I honestly suspect it was the memory card. It is one of my older ones 8gb Hs cards that probably has reached the end of its life. I am scared to use it over. This was an important event, and do not need it to happen again

I know what you mean, the one time I had a suspected faulty card I just put in a new one and dumped the old one into the trash, no reason to risk running into the same problem over and over again, and fortunately the problem didn't reoccur, so in fact it must have been a problem with the card!

Check/replace the USB cable and/or card reader (if you used one) - Dodgy (cheap) USB cables can cause this.

*UPDATE* It was the card reader. On my desktop it loaded fine, thank you all!

Well, it's good to know, get yourself a new reader, don't leave home without it! Better yet get two or three new readers!

Glad all is now OK - I had a faulty USB cable a few years ago, although it worked for other things it was corrupting images.
