removed photos from DSLR and moved back - Canon DSLR can't recognize photos


New member
I have removed card/RAW photos from Canon DSLR, renamed photos and without changing them moved back to card and inserted camera. Canon DSLR can't recognize photos...It can't play them. Why? Anybody can explain this? Thanks!

I've never tried this, but I'm not surprised that it has made the files unreadable by the camera. The problem can be a hidden file that the OS makes in a folder when modifying files in the finder, what characters you used in the file name, or if there are any spaces in the filename.

Generally, this is not a recommended practice.
