D30 Files Crashing!

I'm posting this here in the hopes that one of our D30 users can help me. Right now I'm extremely frustrated. Basically, when I try to open a jpg that I saved, that was created on the D30, it crashes Photoshop. And if I open Widows Explorer it crashes that too when I click on view that directory. What's wrong?

What i do is download the D30 images to a folder in the zoombrowser directory, in the original camera's filename. For example, 100-263.jpg
Then, I open that in Photoshop and that usually works ok. I make my adjustments, crop, USM, etc etc and now save as D-AIBH.jpg (Just one new pic, for example) and I save that in a totally different directory/folder so the original remains.

Now, wierd things keep happening. Sometimes I get a crash, with no error, sometimes I get a message "unknown software exception memory referenced cannot be written" and crash, and sometimes, photoshop just closes down with no warning!!!

I really need some help....  Angry

Oh yeah, forgot to mention, i have 256mb RAM, no other applications open - camera is disconnected from USB. and 90% is allocated to Photoshop. So I dont think its a memory problem???? It'll crash Explorer even if Photoshop isn't open.

I'm not too familiar with the D30, but have you tried opening the files directly from the camera? And can you view the files with no problems in the camera? It sounds like bad files...

I've never seen this problem with the D30 I used and D60 I bought. I did find that downloading them through the camera's digital port was very slow though and instead I download the card through a USB CF reader to my computer or laptop.

Your D30 creates jpeg files (or RAW files) that have a header. I don't think they are any different than other jpeg files just because they were taken with a particular brand of camera. To see what the problem is, try downloading some sample original D30 shots, available at www.dpreview.com or elsewhere (if you can't find any email me and I'll send you some). Open them in Photoshop, resave them, and see if there is still a problem. If the problem continues, you probably have something wrong in your photo program or on your computer. My best judgment rules out anything wrong per se with your D30 files.

Well, what i did was move my "uploads" folder to a different location, in a different directory, and now all the pics open! But as soon as i move it back to its original location, they crash with "memory exception cannot write".

i think somehow there is a problem with the hard drive at that exact location but i scanned the drive for errors and there are none.

I just dont understand it.

Memory exception cannot write has nothing to do with the image itself. THe buffer that the pc is write to write out is being restricted for some reason (usually hardware fault or direct software conflict).

Planedoctor: the header on a photo from a d30/60 is very different to other jpegs. Its hold information such as shutter speed, apature, film speed emulation etc. Normal jpg files dont have this information.

I realize that the header contains different info regarding camera settings (I use the EXIF info all the time), but nothing that should prevent the file from opening. Nor is the header info drastically different from any other digital camera- I have used it with 3 different digitals, and not just the D30. "Normal" jpeg's don't have it because it just hasn't been written in.

I had similar, if not identical problems - turned out to be early symptons of a very sick hard disk which had to be replaced.

I suggest you first run scandisk, then defrag the disk - this should reveal whether or not the disk is the culprit. But before doing this, I would concentrate on making sure you have copies of anything you need ... running defrag on a sick disk can result in total disk failure.

Cheers,

Colin
