    Strange photo problem

    When I copy photos to my tablet, many photos develop this problem. Maybe 1 on 20 photos has this problem at the bottom. The original on my computer is not like this. It happens when I transfer from the computer to the SD Card. Any idea why? Or better, how to make it not happen?

    This posted from the version on my tablet. Semi-Corrupted.

    Here is the same picture but posted from my notebook.

    Photos that are fine on my notebook become semi-corrupted when copied to my tablet.

    I'm not certain why or what is happening, but this is exactly why I always hook up the camera to the computer instead of taking the card out. I had this happen to a bunch of photos from a short trip when I took the SD card from the camera and put it in the computer. Something is getting corrupted somewhere.

    I don't recall if I transferred the photos to the tablet by wire or if I took the microSD card out and using an adapter, put the card into the notebook. In any case, the photos are on the microSD card and not internal storage.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab S4. One of the newest and best. Android obviously. The photos are on the expansion MicroSD card. Not internal storage.

    For what it's worth, it's 32 GB and 91,500 photos.

    The end of the file wasn't copied. Are you making sure to click the safely remove hardware thingie in Windows?

    I generally do but the problem is with about 5% of the 91,500 photos pretty randomly located from the folder for 2003 to the folder for 2018 among any and all of the monthly sub folders within. It took hours to load all those files. Also though my example above isn't as clear as others, there is still data behind the yellow. The photo shifts and discolors.

    I think that it's likely that when I got this Tablet a few months ago that I put the SD card into the computer to copy the photos. I just tried copying over again one year, 2013, using the USB cable and didn't get any corrupted photos. Now I'm transferring the rest. It tells me it will be done in 23 hours! I will likely cut the process short and start it again overnight as I use my tablet in the evening.

    If this works I would still have no idea why putting the SD card in the notebook would create these problems but USB wire would not.
