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!

First thing I did is format the memory card my first mistake, how do I download to the computer


If you formatted the memory card, you will not be able to download your pictures to the computer. Once you format your card, all pictures are deleted. I am sorry for your loss.

If she only deleted them instead of formatting them, there are expensive software programs that can retrieve the pictures providing you didn't keep adding more pictures to the card.

I hit the wrong buttons on my camera 400+ pics deleted from memory card...how can i get them back?


First, don't take any more pictures! Take the card out of the camera and set it aside. Once you have made a mistake like this, any additional saving to the disk WILL overwrite the deleted photos. Even if you format it, it's ok, just don't take any more photos or write to the disk.

Some card manufacturers will now provide a photo undelete software package on the card. However, this may not be available to you if you have formatted the card.

Here is a link to a software package that will help you to retreive them. It will cost you though. That's one thing I would hope people would provide for free, but nope. That's what we get for making the mistake. But good thing is, once you buy it, you're relatively safe so long as you follow my first advice.

Please mark a FixYa!

I deleted all my holiday photoes by mistake


Go to here download the Recuva program (free but be sure to uncheck the option for the yahoo toolbar during install) and be sure your Flash card is plugged in before you run the program. Choose the Card Drive letter and it should locate the images unless you have formatted the card again or covered the files up with new pictures.

Good Luck!

Pictures gone!


Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for. Recommend the last program listed on this page:

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/recovering-those-accidentally-lost.html

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're cheap:

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_st?keywords=card+reader&rs=172282&page=1&rh=n%3A172282%2Ck%3Acard+reader&sort=price

After you've recovered the photos and backed them up on your computer, recommend formatting the card in your camera (note that this will erase all photos on your card). Look for the "Low Level" format option in your camera's menus. A low level format should help prevent this from happening again.
