Default A70 - Photos now corrupting

I have had my A70 for about 4 months and have taken well over 1000 photos and suddenly some of the photos I move to my hard drive are showing corrupted.

Ex: http://www.ultrasoundamps.com/2.htm

Anyone have any idea why??? The computer has not changed.

Thanks

I have seen several discussions at this an other forums which suggest that your CF card may be the problem.

good luck

What do you mean by that? Does the CF card have to be reformatted?
I've seen pics like these but, when I refresh the screen on the computer, they appear normal. It's always been my PC at fault and, I've shot about as many pics as you Dig.

however, what does this have to do with the monitor screen?
Other people like us can also see the corrupted picture.

Ok so now we know that it must be the picture that is corrupted but I still do not know why.

Still looking for the reason why.

Maybe I will just try a new cf card

Thanks

In discussions, re-formatting has sometimes addressed picture file corruption, but more frequently, it has had to be replaced.
