couldn't recognize image file format

Thu Sep 11, 2014 1:22 pm

Hi, I downloaded SD card image I've found on site on DOWNLOADS section (DEBIAN os).
I made it ready for Raspberry Pi B+:

Code: Select all

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
Then from next restart I can't see jpeg, then if I try to open an image I get:

Code: Select all

Couldn't recognize the image file format
How can I solve?
Thanks.

What program are you using to view the files?

What's in the file?

Post the output from
hexdump -C file.name.here | head -4

File????

Every image. On desktop I can't see icons, only text under icons.

I''l check the command, actually I can't access to my Pi.

Take a photo of your screen (so we can see what you're trying to describe) and post it on http://imgur.com, post a link here.
