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!

How do I delete the photos from my Canon PowerShot SX100 IS 10X Optical Zoom 8.0 Mega Pixels camera?


To delete individual images, press the trashcan button (below the cursor pad) while viewing the picture. To delete all images, follow the instructions in the "Erasing All images" section of the manual (page 153 in my copy). Better yet, format the memory card following the instructions in the "Formatting Memory Cards" section (page 59).

If you need a manual, you can download a copy at

I have heard of this happening if the card was not formatted on your camera. Be sure you retrieve what you can from the card, then format it in your camera. It may solve your problem. The higher capacity SD mem chips (>2GB) sometimes don't display with some computers. I had to use a separate USB SD reader because the computer would not read the 4GB chip when I put it in the SD slot.

Videos are now a small picture and when expanded are POOR quality


It seems that you have reduced the resolution of the vedio capturing format. In format settings change it to maximum avaialbe resolution such as 1024x900, etc ( maximum among available). Also for increasing the still photo resolution, select the maximum mega pixel such as 3.2/5/etc.. Usually the mega pixels can be changed using any short cut keys.

Took photos without memory card in - can I retrieve them?


Hi there
You should have a USB lead that goes from the camera to the PC, just connect them up and let the computer install the new hardware, once done if it doesn't autoplay just look in computer for "removable device" just double click on it to open the device and then copy the pics to the PC.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

Lost pictures


It's no problem at all to get your pictures back. Please see this post for several free software that you can download. You'll need to use a card reader with these programs though:

Your user manual may be downloaded directly from Canon for free at the following page:
