Default problem uploading to CF. Please Help!


Camera: Canon S30
Media: SanDisk Ultra 128MB and Canon 16MB
Readers: Simple Tech Flash Link (office) and SanDisk Ultra CF PC Card Adapter (home)
OS: Windows NT (office) and Windows ME (home)

I can no longer upload pictures to my CF cards. With a freshly formatted CF card I used to be able to drag-and-drop images back and forth from computer to CF card via a card reader. Everything worked fine. Now, however, when I put images on the card my camera will not recognize them. It usually just says “no image” and once it said “incompatible JPEG format”. The big problem is that now I can no longer take a CF card to a photo counter with a digital processing station to get prints made. :x
Nothing seems to work. Not dragging-and-dropping, not downloading and uploading via Canon ZoomBrowser software. Nothing!

Does anybody have any idea on what the heck might be going on?
Thanks for any help you can give.

If the images have been altered (or resaved without the Exif info) most cameras will not recognize them. If you copy unedited pictures, your camera should recognize them.

Mike is on point. I copy my pics to a folder from the card, then edit and save them to another location. This procedure will allow you to copy the pics back to the card. I always burn them to cd.
