I believe this is one of the pitfalls of the jpg image process. The way JPEG files are organized, the pixels are broken up into grids (typically 8x8 pixels), and each of those grids is simplified individually. As a result, you'll often end up with a grid pattern within the image that is visible, particularly when you enlarge the image. Now, what is exactly causing this display when you transfer your images I'm not sure. I don't know whether the issue is in your camera or the card or what. Only way to know for sure would be to test it out by changing one variable at a time. Sounds like a GOOD reason to take it to a camera shop to me.

Default Fixed

First let me thank all who gave advice & second I think we cracked it. I have downloaded same photo's direct from the camera (no XD reader) & every one has loaded without a clitch, so defently learnt something from this (put the reader in the bin)
Again Many thanks.
