I don't know what happened but my pictures are gone and I don't know how to get them back! Please help!!?!

Assuming you didn't download the pictures to your computer ... and as part of the download option, you elected to erase/remove the pictures (after downloading them) from the camera ... and you have not done anything (on the camera menu) to "refresh" or erase the pictures, or reformat the storage media (memory card) ...
then ...
... if the pictures are stored in a memory card .... you can take that memory card out of the camera, insert it into your computer ( ... or use a card reader, inserted into a USB port) ... and see if you can recover the "deleted" data from the memory card ...

... if the camera only has "internal" memory ... connect the camera to your computer ... and when it shows up as a storage media, try to recover the "deleted" data from the memory card ...

You can (find on the Internet) and install and use various (free) software (on your computer) to recover "deleted" files on storage media (memory card, etc.), ... on a Windows PC ... like PhotoRec, PC Inspector File Recovery, Undelete Plus (or Undelete 360), Glary Undelete, Wise Data Recovery, Recuva Free.

i can't view all the photos in my JV200? may i know why and if there any solution to this problem?

I don't know why you think you can't view all the pictures? You can't be sure all the pictures you can't see, are still on the memory card.
It is not much I can go on, but I give it a try.
First, if you are not sure if something happened with your memory card in the came, don't shoot a picture till you have checked the card in an external card reader connected to a computer.
With free software to recover your files on a memory card:
http://www.memorycard.freedatarecoverysoftware.org you can check if some pictures that should be on the memory card are deleted. If the software detects one or more files, it will show you. Then you can try to recover the files.
Other sites you can look for software are :
www.cardrecovery.com www.wondershare.net with free trail
www.cardrescue.com with free evaluation version
I hope you find what you are looking for.
Could be some software only detects some files (Then you know there is something to recover) but the firm wants mont for a full version. Just try another link.
I got my software in a package with an expensive memory card, so I stopped checking what link worked the best.

Now what could have happened with your photos.

Someone else could have deleted some pictures, because the did not like the pictures. Or in the past year the camera was switched on, while the battery was almost empty. And while accessing the memory, the voltage was too low to write back the correct file system. Some pictures or the pointers to the pictures ware corrupted. That is why it is not allowed to remove the battery, while the camera is accessing the memory. Can be seen when a light is flashing on the camera.

I hope you find your pictures.

I have a Dell Inspiron E1705 laptop. The battery is testing as full; however, my laptop will not power on. I have removed the battery, let it set for 2 minutes, put the battery back in and have tried to power it up...nothing happens. I've plugged it in and nothing happens. The bluetooth symbol lights up in blue above the keyboard and the #9 lights up in green. The A and the Down Arrow boxes are flashing green. I've never seen this before and I don't know what it means.

Hi, Your computer power up but no monitor display as i understand. My advice is to remove the battery and remove the memory card cover, remove the memory card clean the memory card connectors with pencil eraser and wipe with cotton with alcohol and reinstall the memory card and the cover. Reinstall back the battery and press the on /off switch, It should power up and you will have display. I hope this will help you to solve your problem. Have a happy New Year... HRH

Many software programs will undelete a file deleted by accident but if you've used your computer and loaded other files onto the hard drive then it's possible you could have overwritten the spot the photos were in. An undelete command is built into windows but make sure you know exactly which folder or directory the photos were in prior to attempting an undelete. If you haven't used your camera since offloading them it's possible to run an undelete program on the memory card in the camera. If you've reused that memory card it's a good chance you've overwritten the old ones. Personally I've had little luck with the windows undelete but there are literally dozens of programs available to do the job. Do a search and find one. You could be lucky enough to land a freebie. or maybe one with a weeks trial. Simply enter "I deleted a photo by mistake" You'll be swamped with instructions on what to do. I can't do it myself as I don't know what OS you run etc.

Memory care error

You will probably have to reformat the SD card. This can happen once in a while as SD cards are often subjected to a lot on trips etc.

Tips to good removable device use:

  1. Careful storing your camera for extended periods of time in extreme heat or cold.
  2. When not using an SD card for an extended period of time remove it from the camera and store it in a plastic SD card case or other storage container away from magnets, microwaves, and household pets.
  3. When removing your camera from the computer, use the safely remove device utility in Windows, don't just yank it out.
  4. Large capacity SD cards mean more data to lose. SD cards are like floppy disks, do not rely on your SD card to archive photos, documents, etc. Backup SD cards to your drive or burn them to CD frequently.
