I am beyond pissed right now. I've just downloaded all our photos.... to the 8GB stick that Mr T purchased in Beijing. I've just open the photos, and every single one of them is ruined. They have stripes of colour through them, they look as they 2 photos have merged into one. I feel sick.
I'm SOOOOO annoyed with myself that I didn't transfer the last 200 that were on the camera directly to my laptop, then copy to the stick... but no, I thought I'd put them all in one place coz Mr T will want them all on his stick, then I'll transfer to my hard drive.
I'm so ticked, I'm not even going to try and salvage a few, right now. We have Beijing on my stick from home. And they're all good.
Woo-sa. Breath in, breath out.
Another tip to add to list - DO NOT BUY ANY COMPUTER GEAR IN CHINA. MAKE SURE YOU BUY AT HOME - AS ITS COMPATIBLE WITH YOUR HOME SYSTEMS.
