How did you load them.? I had a very similar issue and it turned out to be my card reader. Got a new SanDisk reader, and have never had another problem.

Good luck

Mike did say that the problem applies to images viewed on the camera as well as those viewed on the computer.

Try taking pictures in Auto, P, S, A, M modes. Check to see shutter is closing properly. Clean SD card contacts IN CAMERA which is difficult and may require some guidance or help from a pro.

O.K., Question...Cleaning the card contacts in the camera.
Would saturating a sensor swab with the sensor cleaning fluid or denatured Alcohol,then running it down into the card slot clean the contacts properly? Would putting Deoxit on the card contacts, then inserting and removing the card several times be a viable method for cleaning the camera contacts?
