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 GE C1130 and it has a tendency of losing pictures . When you go on the viewing part it shows empty. Also shows empty when you hook it to a computer. I haven't deleted anything. Last time the pics...


This is a formatting problem (in other words, it's likely you did not format the card in your camera when you first got it). First thing to do is back up all photos from the card onto your computer. Afterwards, format the card IN THE CAMERA using the camera's format feature. This will correct the problem from reoccurring in the future, but will also erase the card! So again, only do this after backing up your photos.

Everytime I load my pics to computer there are same 7 photos that are not showing on camera. How do I delete them? How do I locate them?


The next time your pics are safely on your computer, put the card back into the camera, go into the menu and find "format"....follow the on-screen instructions to completely erase and optimize your card. The 7 pics should be gone.

WHEN I HOOK MY CAMERA TO MY COMPUTER AND TURN THE POWER BOTTON ON TO THE CAMERA MY COMPUTER "SHUTS DOWN AND WILL NOT RESTART TILL I TURN THE CAMERA OFF. PLEASE TELL ME WHAT TO DO PLEASE MAKE IT SIMPLE...


First of all, stop hooking the camera to the computer to download pics. That's not the best way and obviously, your computer doesn't like it. Get a separate card reader and use it instead of your camera. This one is only $13 at Walmart. 46e433f.jpg

File contains no image data


If you format, you will lose everything...format means erase and optimize. Take your card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture maker machine. It will usually read all the pics on a card and you can make a cd of them on the machine.

My kodak easyshare c913 turns of when hooked up to usb


Try opening the Kodak software first, then turn the camera on. I've found that you need the Kodak program to transfer the pictures from the camera. I personally do not like this, my old camera (also Kodak) would act like a plane old flash card/removeable device, this new one doesn't.
Anyhow, I find it super easy to just take the SD card out and pop it into the media slot in my printer. Then just open explorer and it's there just like any other hard drive or CD/DVD drive and transfer them to where ever you like.
If your printer or computer doesn't have a slot for SD cards you can get one that plugs into a USB port, pretty cheaply at any store that sells computer products.

Camera wont turn on after trying to download pics to computer/can't find pics on computer now


You probably had a bad USB connection that supllied to much voltage (or had a bad ground or reverse polarity) to the camera and shorted out the circuit board. Disconnect all cables. Hook up to a charger and try again. If this does not work, the camera is fried, sorry.

Downloading pics from camera to mac


We had trouble uploading to our mac, especially with videos.  A camera store guy suggested using a card reader instead of uploading through the camera -- it's much faster.  Hope this helps.

Memory card formatting


Unfortunately, there is no way to format your card without losing any saved pictures. Sometimes, if you insert your card into other cameras or printing kiosks at walgreens or target, it will work. it's a long shot though. Chances are, you may have to lose your saved pictures :(
