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 used the PhotoRec solution to recover 4gb of pictures from my Sandisk CF; worked great. It's a little tricky but gets the job done. I have Rescuepro which came with my Cf card but it would only let me run Demo mode and refused to accept my serial number...Thank you for providing the solution

Can i still retrieve deleted pictures from my memory card the problem is i took another photos big mistake i did.is there any options still to retrieve?


Your memory card has a certain amount of space dedicated to storage and you can continuously take pictures for storage. Once that space is used up, new pictures will overwrite anything that is old on the card. Probability of recovering anything deleted highly unlikely.

Deleted photos by mistake Is there anyway of


You can often successfully recover deleted photos from a PC, phone or camera memory card or USB Memory stick, it just depends on what's happened since the files were deleted.
When you delete files the data itself isn't deleted, just the index entry that says where the data for those files is located. The space containing the deleted files is also now marked as free space so it is available to the system for any new files to be written there instead.

If and when that happens, then it becomes too late to recover your deleted files so it is very, very important to not save any new files or data to the device concerned.
If the deleted files are on a memory card or USB memory stick, just don't save any new files to it.

One of the easiest ways to see if you can recover deleted files is to try some file recovery software. Recommended this data recovery as it saved my life many times.

Pictures were on memory card, i was looking through them and it then said picture error and erased all of them. can i get them back


If you are using a memory card, take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that are available to help you recover your photos. This blog article reviews and outlines several of the better ones.

You want to download a program called Zero Assumption Recovery. It is a very simple program to use and people have had much success in recovering lost or erased images.

Can I retrieve deleted pictures


Yes, you can recover your deleted photos on your own. It's a just common situation that we lost data after accidental deleting.
Follow the below steps you can recover your deleted photos.
1. Stop taking new photos with this camera.
2. Download and install a recovery software. Last time I used Wondershare Photo Recovery to recover my photos (Shift+Del)
3. Connect your camera to your computer, then you will see a drive letter like H:
4.Select the drive letter and click Next to start automatic scanning.
5. Preview and save your recoverable photos
Notes:
You can preview your photos from Preview Thumbnail to check if all the photos you need are recoverable and evaluate the recovery quality before you buy.
Here is a guide on how to unerase deleted pictures from digital camera.
