Hi!

I am looking some explanation for the strange situation.
I bought a new camera Canon IXUS 220 HS and Transcend 8GB SD-card 2 months ago. After 200 pictures made, there was a case then I did 6 pictures in one event. I defenetly saw that camera captured them. After some time I wanted to watch the pictures from camera, and it said that pictures are unidentified! Same answer occured when I had transfered those few pictures to computer.

For now I have been taken about 1500 pictures and after some time, in totally random places he skips some picture like that. I think the total of 15-20 pictures are skipped in pairs or something like that. And every time I do a picture I check it immediately under play, and all seems to be ok. You will find the suprise next time, then you check your done pictures under "play"!

What could be the problem? Should I buy a new SD-card or can I somehow fix that? Or is the problem in camera?

Big thanks to you,
R.

If the card has been used a lot, you should try replacing it. They have limited writes, much more limited than hard drives (of the order of 100's before they can't be used as opposed to millions for hard drives). For something important, it would be a good idea to replace the cards periodically.

sounds more camera like to me, are you leaving the camera on for at least a few seconds after the preview goes away? depending on the camera it could be waiting to save to SD or even slow to save.
