Hello all,

I bought a 2gb sd card of a well known internet auction site and up to now it has been fine.

2 days ago I decided to review some shot and a small video 'in the camera' all my shots and the video were gone nothing at all to review, I put the card in the computer card reader and opened the file, it was all gobbledygook just a load of icons in html format.

I tried to open the files but all said empty, some of the icons were 2.5 gb 3.4gb very large files when I looked in properties some were created in 2088! 2065 years from now and some in 1995 when the camera was not invented!

Anyone help with this as I cannot trust the card.

Try this:

to see if you can recover your files and then try formatting your card in the camera and hope it's a one off glitch!

How can the file sizes be 2.5gb and 3.4gb when it's only a 2gb card?

Are you sure you're reading the correct card?
