int main(void)
{
    FILE* file = fopen("card.raw", "r");
    if (file == NULL)
    {
        return 1;
    }

    for (int i = 0; i < 51; i++)
    {
        sprintf(title, "00%d.jpg", i);
        FILE* img = fopen(title, "a");
        int* buffer = malloc(sizeof(uint8_t) * 512);

        if(fread(&buffer, 512, 1, file) == 0xffd8ffe)
        {
            fwrite(&buffer, 512, 1, file);
            fclose(file);
            free(buffer);
        }
    }
}

I'm getting:

        sprintf(title, "00%d.jpg", i);

Have you ensured title is within the scope of main()? It is quite possible you only have it available within the function that previously declared it.

Update: I recommend you compile and see for yourself, although assuming it is above the first for loop inside main, then yes. However the title should be unique, three digits long (padded if necessary) and initially zero; I recommend you create a function for that, so you can call
char* title = get_filename();

where get_filename looks something like:

int count = 0;
char* get_filename()
{
    // Dostuff
    count++;
}

Alternatively you can also use static variables, which "remember" their state between function invocations.

  • I added char* title = "title"; before the start of the loop. Did I fix the compiling problem correctly?
