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!

When viewing pictures on playback some turn black and no image is available? Does anyone know why this happens? Thanks.


Hello SugarAlmonds,

If by that you mean some pictures are OK and some are blank/no image available... that usually happens when the pictures have been edited (could be accidentally by rotating it while viewing it) in a computer OR the pictures are not properly deleted. So, when viewing pictures from your camera to your computer, it is always better to copy all of them first to your computer then you can view/edit the copied files.

To correct the problem, copy ALL the pictures to your computer and then format your memory card using your camera.

Note: all pictures on your memory card will be deleted when you format it.

I hope this helped you.

How to delete pictures from a canon power shot sd 1000


It's very easy, there are 2 ways:
1) Using the camera itself:
  1. Slide the black slide switch on the back to the lowest position (to access stored pictures; now the images you took earlier can be seen on the screen.)
  2. Using the directional keys, browse to the image you want to delete.
  3. Press the down directional key (marked with a blue icon of a 'picture' being put into a dustbin)
  4. Confirm by selecting "yes" and pressing "func.set". the image is now deleted.
2) Using a computer (more convenient when you want to delete multiple/all the stored images:
  1. After plugging the camera in (using the supplied cable) open "my computer"
  2. open the camera and keep opening the folders until you find the pictures you have taken.
  3. Holding down the "ctrl" key on the keyboard, click on all the images you want to delete to select them. (if you want to delete all the images you have taken, replace this step with; click on "file" or "organize" and then click "select all")
  4. press the "delete" key. click "yes" now you have deleted the pictures.
There you go. I hope I was helpful.

How to delete pictures from samsung L200


To delete a single image, select the image in view mode by pressing left/right buttons, then press delete button (little garbage can symbol). To delete more than one image go through images and press T button (zoom button) for each image you want to delete to mark them for deletion, then press ok to delete the selected images. If you want to delete all images, just format the card. Hope that helps

''SYSTEM ERROR'' & How can I retrieve back images? URGENT. Please.


Sorry for the late reply. You should take the memory card out of your camera first and connect it to another comptuer(via a card reader or so), you are possibly to recover the lost photos with so-called photo recovery software but it's not 100% sure. Well, since you failed to mention the OS you are running, I'll recommend you have a try of Wondershare Photo Recovery, a program equipped with both Windows and Mac versions. For Windows OS, download here. If you are running Mac OS X, get the program from this link.

Step-to-Step Instruction:

1. Download and install the trial version on your computer, then connect your camera memory card to the computer (I assume you are using Windows). Start Wondershare Photo Recovery and select the drive letter that assigned to camera memory card.
2. Then choose the file type (all, photo, video, music) click "Star Scan".
3. Now the scanning process will start automatically to look for the deleted items. You will then get a list of all recoverable ones.
4. Preview the photos. If your deleted ones are found, then you need pay to get the activation code. And click "Recover".

Tips:
1. Take the free trial version before you buy.
2. Before your deleted items are recovered, do not take more photos or videos.

I hope you good luck,

Delete multiple pictures


The only way you can delete multiple pictures with this camera is to use the format function. This deletes all information including pictures and video from the card giving a totally blank card. You can set it to do this with internal memory also.

There is no function to selectively pick multiple images for deletion.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks.

Put computer pics back on camera?


Hello,

One very easy method is to find the picture you want back on the camera. Right click on the picture and select COPY. Then double click on "my computer" and locate your camera. Double click on the camera and it should open up the memory card. Click through the folders until you find the pile of images. Right click in the "free space" and select paste. You may need to rename the imaghe once it's there but, that will atleast get the image back on the camera.

Hope this helps, Let me know if you need anything else.

Deleted pictures


It should be no problem at all to get them 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:

Ahhh help!


You should use photo recovery software to rescue the lost pictures, here are some you may rely on. Both programs can also recover videos and music.

Photo Recovery Software (for Windows)
Mac Photo Recovery Software (for Mac OS X)

Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the memory card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.
