First do not panic! It is possible to recover your pictures if you take care. Take the card from the camera (powered off) and if it has a "write protect" tab then lock it now. Do not try and write anything to the card or you risk causing more problems.

You can either plug in you camera to the PC as it should appear as a “Removable Drive” or put the card in a card reader attached to your PC.

Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a FREE utility that will recover your photos from the following link:

http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec

If you need something a little more "user friendly" then you will need to buy the software. If you search the web for photo recovery software you will find many.
One I have used successfully is RescuePro that used to be bundled with some Sandisk products. Now you can get it from the link below:

http://www.lc-tech.com/software/prwindetail.html

You can try the demo to see what you can recover before buying.

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to the card until you can recover your pictures to your PC safely!

I have lost the CD which came with my camera and can't download the pictures to my camera. Is there somewhere online which has this CD that I can download?


Try connecting to your pc with USB. Most computers/operating systems will detect it.

The other option is to use an external flash card reader. Remove the flash card from the camera - plug into the flash card reader (which should already be attached to your pc with a USB cable) and you should be able to download the pictures.

Need to delete protected pictures


Try to remove first the memory card of your camera. After you remove the card you can see a small button at the side of the memory card. Just slide the small button to unprotected. Insert your memory card back to your camera and try to delete pictures.

Please help, i have lost a lot of pictures from my camera and i have a horrible feeling i pressed the format button without realising what id done. Are all my pictures lost?


Unfortunately, if you formatted the card, yes they are gone. The memory is flash memory, and reformatting erases all information on the card. You might try taking the card out and downloading to your your computer, but it sounds like they won't be there. Always be careful, once you format a card there is no turning back.

Blurred pictures on fuji finepix J15fd


This is the camera shake warning, and thus the blur. It is suggesting you are using too slow of a shutter speed for the lighting conditions. The flash should be set to "auto" in order that it will automatically fire if the light is insufficient. Check your flash settings to make sure it's not set to "slow-sync" or "fill-in" settings.

Lost magnavox digital keychain manual


Having lost the owners manual I had tried everything to delete all the pictures at one time but couldn't do it. Evidently I had skiped one - the CA mode - which when pushing the shutter button once, while flashing - solved the problem.

Lost My Pictures


I think you have two separate issues going on, but I'm not sure.

The red lightning bolt on a Kodak I believe is a flash that is either not working, or shut off. Try the flash options and enabling the flash, or putting it on auto flash. That should take care of the red lightning bolt.

As for finding your photos, if you use windows XP, go to start, and then search. Your first options would be photos, video, music, click on photos, and search. If you have too, type in *.jpg in the search keyword box.

When you find them, you can move them back to your my pictures folder. This is assuming they are not deleted completely from your hard drive.
