    TZ1-transcend 2GB 150x ==> cannot read jpeg???

    Hi all, I read the previous post, but I think my problem is a little different.

    I have taken a lot of pictures with my TZ1. But half of my pictures I cannot see on my computer or laptop. I CAN see the jpeg files, so they ARE there, but when I want to view them, it says something like cannot read image/corrupt file/etc. This, while I can view them on my the TZ1 lcd...

    Has anyone experienced the same problem with the TZ1 or the transcend 2GB 150x? Is this a failure of the camera/the card/the computer or the cardreader (usb1.0).

    Please help, because I wouldn't want corrupt pictures taken on my upcoming trip to Southeast asia!!!

    I had a similar experience with my FZ20. I my case, the problem was with the card reader. It was not capable of reading a 1 GB card. A new reader did the trick. Also, I was able to transfer the pics from the camera with the USB cable.

    Hi I have the 2GB too and they are the best I had up to now. There are two possibilities
    1) The card is defekt - but then you wouldn´t see the photos in the Lumix
    2) The Cardreader has a problem with 2 GB cards

    Try one thing. Link the camera directly to the PC ( if you have XP it will be recongnized as external HD) and transfer (copy) the photos to your PC HD and then see. If this works - its the card reader.
    If this does not work try the SD card in another computer with a other card reader. If then it still doesn´t work then its the card. I would call TRansdcend, explain the problem, maybe they will be able to transfer the pictures to a new SD card.

    Cheers

    I would for sure get a new card reader and it does not need to be expensive...a 10 dollar reader will do, just make sure it is USB2....and you may wish to consider if it SDHC but thats not real important.

    My issue happened at my wifes grandparents place. They have a Kodak with a printer dock. Before I had the TZ1 I had a Canon SD550. I took photos with the 550 and put the 1gig SD card in the Kodak camera to print. Worked fine. That wasn't the case with the TZ1. For some reason the dock said that the file was corrupt with the pictures that were taken by the TZ1.

    Now why would this card work when the pictures were taken with the Canon, but not with the TZ1?
    When this girl at the art museum asked me whom I liked better, Monet or Manet, I said, "I like mayonnaise." She just stared at me, so I said it again, louder. Then she left. I guess she went to try to find some mayonnaise for me. -Jack Handey

    Is it a 1 gb card or 2 gbs..... Also the easyshare software for the kodak may not be set to read the Pansonic #s.
    Most of this software and older readers were built when 256mb was the largest card available.
    And the Canon was a year older...may fit with the technology of the Kodak dock better

    The simplest way to do this is get a new Card reader or I do not like this system but use the camera to transfer the photos.

    If you can get it to work one way then you know where to look .....I still think a card reader is the answer.

    This may be the answer to my question.

    No I haven't formatted the card throughly since I had the Canon. The dock still read the 1gig card when the pics came from the Canon. I bet it is the Panasonic file numbers.

    Thanks for all the suggestions!

    It did seem to be the cardreader! When connecting the TZ1 directly to the pc, there is no problem viewing pictures. So I guess it's an old cardreader.

    Now I can take pictures in Asia without having to worry whether I'm able to see them again :-)

    Case closed I guess!

    Please get yourself a reader before the cable to the camera fails and you are up the creek again.
    I have one of these great on vacations....
