Neural Compute Stick 2 , toolkit and sdk Installation up to this point went fine, but when trying to run the demo:

./demo_squeezenet_download_convert_run.sh -d MYRIAD

I get this error at the end:

[BMP] file is not bmp type
[ WARNING ] Image /home/myname/intel/computer_vision_sdk/deployment_tools/demo/car.png cannot be read!
[ ERROR ] Valid input images were not found!
Error on or near line 235; exiting with status 1

I have looked for existing posts but have not found a solution within them , please help thanks

I had the exact same problem.

Probable cause: I ran ./demo_squeezenet_download_convert_run.sh without the -d MYRIAD flag initially, so it built the inference engine samples and openvino models for the default device (CPU), not the Myriad.

Solution: Delete the ~/inference_engine_samples and ~/openvino_models directories and run

./demo_squeezenet_download_convert_run.sh -d MYRIAD

I am guessing you are trying to read in file that is not a bmp file.
