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:

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!

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

How do i retieve my pictures that was deleted by mistake?


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.

I want to buy a digital camera , there are 2 brand of my choice one is nikon digital coolpix series & second is canon digital ixus series within the price range 11 to 12 k, so pls guide me which brand...


The best for you to decide is to decide on by yourself with the follwoing tips:
Take a trial shot using both the cameras in close up , portrait and scenes. and also using the flash. Now check the clarity to confirm your taste.
The customere controls are they friendly to you?
Finally check for accessories that come free along , stand, covers, memorry cards, chargers etc.
The price is the last to decide between Nikon and Canon.

Deleted smart card by mistake. want to get the pix back. Have a Olympus Camedia C-3000 Camera, 3.3 mega pixil. Is there a program to reinstate deleted pix?


Have you ever accidentally deleted pictures from your cameras memory card? Or pressed the Format button instead of delete button and wiped your card clean?
However, there are also a lot of good open source / freeware apps out there that can usually get the job done. And that’s where the nice people at CONVAR come in – offering a program called PC Inspector Smart Recovery , which can recover lost pictures for free. What’s even better is that it’s extremely easy to use and works well (based on my tests).
Please note that after you’ve lost the picture, DO NOT take any more pictures on the memory card, as writing new data to the card lowers your chances of recovering the picture. Also note, that recovering the picture is not 100% guaranteed, but there’s a good chance your picture will be recovered.


Step by step instruction, here it is: 1: Download PC INSPECTOR Smart Recovery.
2: Connect your memory card, either by a little memory card reader, or hook your camera up to the PC via the data cable.
3: Run PC INSPECTOR Smart Recovery.
4: Select the drive which is the memory card. It should be the one that has just connected.
5: Leave the format type as .JPG.
6: Choose a destination for the recovered files.
7: Press ‘Start’.

Hope helped with this. Good luck.
