I use my Rebel SL1 nearly everyday, and I've never had trouble uploading photos by either inserting the SD card into my desktop or using the camera cord to upload the photos to my desktop.
However, I took about 20 pictures over Christmas and for the first time, they won't upload. I can view all of the photos on my camera, however, when they try to upload the message indicates there has been an error, the photo gallery cannot open the photo, and the file format is not supported.
I tried another SD card to determine whether it was the SD card which was broken, but the next SD card I inserted and snapped a photo and tried to upload, the desktop is showing the exact same "cannot open the photo" message.
I'm using the exact same program to view the photos, and the photos were taken on the exact same camera setting as the 2000 other photos that are uploading from my SD card.
So it appears to be the camera (not any specific SD card) that is preventing new photos from uploading to my desktop.
IF you can see the photos on the LCD they exist. If you can't then they are not being saved to the card. Is the little LOCK tab set forward or to the rear of it's slot OR missing? I've had more than 1 SD card split open enough for the lock to fall out.
Yes, I can see the photos on the camera screen when the SD card is inserted in the camera. It is when I upload the photos to my computer that I get a message saying the photo gallery can't read the photo.
The same thing happens with multiple SD cards, so it must be the camera.
I'm wondering if there is some way to open them, or something I can set the camera to to make them readable when uploading?
Yes you can undo it but you'll need the correct software to view the files you already have & to convert them to jpg's Use your manual to re set what types of files the camera writes to the card. Select any of the jpg ONLY settings & test fire a few shots & see if they show up on your computer.
To see & edit RAW files install DPP from your software disc.
