After updating to KDE 4.4.1 (14/03/10) from factory which included Digikam 1.1 packages I have trouble importing photos.

The photos become corrupted when imported from a memory card reader.

Can anyone point me in the right direction to trouble shoot this?

3) KDE 4.4.1 (factory)
4) Images stored locally under Home/Username/Photos
