OK! That often depends on what you've done to this memory card since then.
In fact, after the formatting process, the deleted photos on this memory card of your camera are not actually wiped out as you normally think. They are still stored on this memory card and only become invisible. But, they cannot be there forever. They can be rewritten by anything new on the same memory card. So, you should take care.
Plunge this camera to your computer and download a formatted camera data recovery freeware to help you out:

I believe this data recovery freeware can work perfectly on your memory card just in the same way as it completely retrieves all the deleted data of my friend off from his camera memory card. Just give it a shot!

PS: If you don't want to encounter the similar data recovery problems, you'd better back up everything important well in the future.

Not if you've truly formatted it. But if you've only used the "erase all" feature of your camera, then there is hope. 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:

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

If you have a memory card reader, insert that in your computer and download Recuva from Piriform's website.Its a free download unless you want to pay for premium support.

You should be able to recover any lost photos from the memory card and copy them to the computer. Then you can reformat the card to see if that resolves your problem.

Also you may want to see if you can take a photo without the memory card, and if that works you know its a memory card issue.

Hi, My canon PowerShot A540 camera gives an error " Card locked" Memory card error. I tried switching off the lock, but it didn't help. The card does not get recognized while inserting it in...


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Other causes include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.
You also mention recovering photos saved on the card. If you actually did take pictures with this card (assuming it's a 2GB or less standard SD card, as 4GB SDHC was not designed for your camera), you may be able to recover the photos using recovery software. See this other link.

My problem is.. when I insert my memory card a message goes "this card cannot be used" please help me to solve my problem in nikon s210. thanks


Greetings - The message indicates that the file system of the card has been damaged. If you reformat the card from the camera's menu it will be fine to use again.

The problem, of course, is if there are photos on the card you need to recover. There are many tools that will help you try to recover your data (no guarantees). HERE is a list of such software, some free some not, with user ratings.

If you need to recover photos (DO NOT REFORMAT) the SD card!

Good Luck,

Yes you can recover most or all if you act quickly. Go to your local staples or other computer store and speak with the technician about which piece of software you will need. j.

I have formated my digital camera photos..how to recover them?


dont worry, you can still recover photos after you reformat the camera. However, you need to use a camera format recovery software, recommended asoftech photo recovery as it helped me before.
http://www.asoftech.com/apr/

You'd better take out the memory card from camera, and then connect the camera memory card to computer with card reader, and then use asoftech photo recovery to scan the memory card and recover photos.

Canon SX200 Kingston 4GB SDHC card


Deleting or formatting won't make the data in memory card erased permanently.

Those lost pics are still stored on the memory card, it's just invisible or inaccessible. Only the FAT or NFTS table is erased (the information about where those data were saved), but the real data are still intact there in sectors of the hard drive.

So as long as those photos are not overwritten by new pictures, it's highly possible to recover them. And the MOST Effective way is to rely on some format recovery programs.

Try Asoftech Photo Recovery program, which can recover pictures after deeply scanning the memory card to look for lost pics you accidentally deleted or formatted.
