Re: Lodged memory card
If you cannot take apart the housing to remove the card here is one technique I have used that requires a steady hand. Provided the end of the card is visible but not exposed enough to be able to grab it with small tweezers, using a
small piece of wire or paper clip, bend the end so that a small part
will lay flat against the exposed end of the card. With extreme care,
place a very small amount of quick-curing epoxy on the bent end of the wire
and place it against the card and hold in place until hardened. Be VERY careful not to
use too much glue or you may wind up gluing the card in place. If luck
is in your favor you can use the wire to pull the card out when the
epoxy hardens. Best of luck, may the force be with you.

I took photo's without a memory card in the camera (Hitachi HBC 161E) and thinking i could retreiv them using my usb cable connected the me pc. However when connected the camera remains out of view to the computer. How do I retrieve my pictures
You are not able to load a camera built-in hard drive onto a PC, it would not have windows on camera so a PC would not read the data, however if the mem card is plugged into the slot like on most new PCs over last 3 years called SD/Mini the card certainly could still be read on the PC.
The answer is YES. Do it as follows. ---------------------------------------------------------
First things first: DO NOT take any more videos with the memory card or hard disk (on your camcorder) that you want to recover videos from. Take the memory card or disk out of your cam and put it in a safe place. Because if you take any more videos or save any data to your memory card or hard disk, you may quite possibly ruin your chances of video recovery.
Then Connect the card or disk to your computer 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 data recovery utility that will recover your videos with Wondershare Recovery Software (I once used this program bounded with some other software) from the following link:
Remove the battery and let the unit rest for a few hours, try again.Tap the tape door, the tape may have become lodged. If this doesn't work then you will have to send it for repair.
Safe mode is to protect it from any more damage.
When you use an SD card in mulitple cameras, each camera creates it's own folder beneath the DCIM folder. I'm not sure if you have a program that automatically opens when you insert the SD card in your reader, but perhaps you can try double clicking on "My Computer" and locating your reader/SD card and opening that folder manually. Once you're there, open the DCIM folder and see if there are multiple folders inside. Open each one to see if you can locate your pictures.
If you have a program that opens automatically when you insert the SD card you'll need to figure out how to tell it to look in other folders.
