'No Image' message even though files are there!

Apologies if this has been asked before... I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong with my G10 but after I've moved or copied files (I only shoot in RAW) to my PC from the SD card using a card reader and then re-insert the card into my G10 I get a 'No Image' message when I press the review button!

If I then re-insert the card & reader into my PC it still shows files are there! Its as though once moved or copied, my G10 is no longer recognising the files even though if I go to the 'format' function in the menu it's showing some of the SD card's space is used - is this normal? Is it something I'm doing wrong? I'm sure it hasn't always been doing this.
:confused:

Thanks in advance

If you "move" files from one device to another, you're essentially deleting them from the source device and copying them over to the other device. If you "copy" the files, the files should remain on both devices.

Are you properly unmounting the card before removing it from the card reader?

Cheers,
R.

rbil, thanks for the reply :)

the same thing is happening regardless of whether I copy or move the files across. By 'unmounting the card', I take it you mean clicking the 'remove device' icon on my PC?

What's confusing me is that if I re-insert the card (& reader) into my PC, I can view the files as normal, it's just that they are no longer available to view on my camera's screen

If it was me, I'd get the files into my PC and then put the card back in the camera and reformat the card. See if that then fixes your problems.

Cheers,
R.

I have noticed a number of weird things with my G11. For example when I plug it into my PC (XP SP3) I find that unlike a normal USB device / mass storage device the images cannot be viewed from Windows (which I can do with my Nikon). I must first transfer the files using the Canon software and then they show up on my PC at their transfer destination. Maybe this is part of the same issue.
