Verifying Images

A second important reason why it's always a good idea to wait until the File Browser has generated the previews before reformatting the camera media is that if Camera Raw has any problem reading the images, the problems will only show up on the high-quality thumbnail and preview. The initial thumbnails are the camera-generated ones, and they don't indicate that the raw file has been read successfully. The high-quality ones do indicate that the raw file has been read successfully, so wait until you see them before erasing the raw image files from the camera media.

If you do see a problem at this stage, check the second copy (if you made one) or go back to the camera media—you haven't reformatted it yet, right? It's fairly rare for the data to get corrupted in the camera (though it does sometimes happen), so the first suspect should be the card reader.
