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:

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!

Not Able to Transfer Photos


To get things clear for me, some questions. Do you use a Memory Stick Duo? As you know you can't use a Memory stick in your camera.
Can you see any picture you shot, on the display of the camera?
Did you protect the pictures in the memory and then did a format?
Because format will not look to any software protection, you really lost all pictures.

If so, there are some programmes, that could possibly restore your pictures, if you did nothing more than formatting the memory card.

You can recover pictures from canon camera with camera recovery software, download this one names asoftech photo recovery that helped me before

Take note that you'd better remove the memory card from camera, and then connect the memory card to computer with a card reader.

If needed, you can do a quick format of the memory card, and then use asoftech photo recovery to recover the photos.

Here's a video tutorial for camera photo recovery

I had over 700 pics. i formatted them didn't relaize it meant earse all pics. how can i restore them?


Hi,
Formatting the memory card erase all the data including protected images and other file types. So, once you formatted the memory card there is no way to restore them.

Rating the solution is highly appreciated...Good Luck

I just accidentally deleted all the pictures in my camera, is there anyway to recover them?


Chances are there to recover those pictures as long as they are not overwritten. First things first - Stop using the camera to take more photos immediately! Then connect the device where your lost images located to a PC which has installed this digital camera photo recovery. If you are using Mac OS X, turn to camera recovery Mac.

Remember - DO NOT write anything back untill you recover the photos safely.
