Strange Files On Camera SD Card

Got a call from a user who couldn’t read the files off of her SD Card from her Cannon Powershot 190. We connected to her machine and this is what the files looked like in the card reader.

We found articles on the web declaring it is a virus, bad encryption, or just corrupt. We put the card back in the camera and used the camera to format the card again. This fixed the issue and the card could be used again.

Let us know if this helped you…
