Question about Pentax Optio M10 Digital Camera

3 Answers

Retrieving files pictures that were recently stored on the micro sd card cannot be viewed anymore. We do not remember deleting the pics manually. Question: Are there other ways of deleting pictures from the cam aside from doing it manually? If the pics were accidentally deleted, how can we retrieve them? Is there a setting on the camera which might lead us not to access stored pics (like a hide picture option, perhaps?) aisha

It may be accidentally without your notice, it could be a hardware issue, or some software problem, or someone press delete all, or format without realize that.

The good news is that you are able to get back deleted pictures with 001 picture recovery program. download the program from

Hello

My apologies if this message finds you long after posting this problem , but I am currently working through a backlog of problems that never got answered and hopefully this info can still be of use if not now possibly in future.

Please download Disc Digger HERE. This is a free tool you can use that works very well and there is no installation required, just run the program once you downloaded it.

Once you have connected the memory card to the computer via either the camera or preferably with a usb card reader , run the program.

On the program , select the dig deep option for accidentaly deleted files or dig deeper for a formatted card. Then select the card you want to do the recovery on and run the program.

The data will be displayed and you can recover it from there. This will only work if the card has not been used since the pictures were lost. Save the files to a location on the computer hard drive and not back to the memory card as this will overwrite the other pictures that still needs to be recovered.

Some of the properties of the files may become lost in the recovery but the pictures should be fine.

Feel free to ask if you need more assistance.

Kind Regards
Andrea

Marie, If your computer is not equipped with a SD/Micro SD card Reader you will have to purchase one to simplify looking at it and copying it on computer. You can also use appropriate cable possibly to hook your camera up to computer.
Step 1/ Insert a USB card reader into an available USB port on your PC.
Step 2/ Insert the micro SD card into the card reader. Some card readers will only accept standard SD cards. If that's the case, insert your micro SD card into an SD card adapter and insert the adapter into the card reader.
Step 3/ Click "Open Folder to View Files" in the Auto Play window to launch Windows Explorer in the appropriate drive letter. Alternatively, press "Windows-E" and click the card reader's drive letter.
Step 4/ Drag and drop files to or from the micro SD card's drive letter to copy files. Alternatively, right-click and drag files and then select "Move Here" to move the files without keeping the files in the original location.
Step 5/ Select a file, press "Delete" and select "Yes" to delete files from the micro SD Card.
Step 6/ Right-click the micro SD card's drive letter and select "Eject." Once ejected, you may safely remove the card.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

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.

Kodak Easyshare V803 "unrecognized file format."


Sounds like there is a fault in the SD card.

Try an alt. card reader and computer.

Hopefully you will have the chance to retrieve the pics. If not ;(

Once pics are transferred. The SD card needs to be formatted. Remember this will delete all data on the card.

Memory Card Error


You could take the card to a store that has a Kodak picture maker machine (Walmart, etc.). From there, you can print your pics or even make a cd of them. The card may be faulty or just may not work in Canon cameras.

Not able to 'delete' a picture from my Lumix TZ3


Sounds like a MobileMate quirk Tanya. Use your USB cable connection to your PC/Camera interface and delete pics that way too see if this funny goes away.

If it does, and I believe it will, then it is a SanDisk issue not revising the File Allocation Table(FAT) after deleting the Pic File on the mem card.

You could also find out if this is just an SDHC SD card reader issue by using an older less dense standard 1 or 2Meg non-SDHC mem card in the reader and see if issue goes away.

The fallback of course to view and delete the pics on the camera before download, or download pics then note which pic file numbers you want deleted after viewing on PC, then put SD card back in camera and delete them there.

Another option for trial, is to cut and paste the whole DCIM folder, or sub pic folder to your PC from off the SD card using the card reader. The camera automatically generates subfolders under the DCIM folder if you completely remove(deleting by a cut or move), when you take your first picture on a camera with a DCIM but not sub pic folder. Try this first and I think you will find all pics will be deleted from camera that are in a subfolder under DCIM. If not, then cut or move the whole DCIM folder and create a new DCIM(empty) folder on the SD card using the PC and card reader. Of course using this method you cannot selective delete individual pics from the mem card. You would be deleting them all after the Folder cut or move from the SD card.

Retrieving file


There are companies that claim to be able to retrieve deleted files on mem cards, if their space has not been written over by other pics taken sense, or a mem card FORMAT. Google it.

Your better approach may be to try to recover the files showing 3Meg size on your computer download. Sounds like mem card quit working correctly after first 100 photoes. Was this a name brand SD card like San Disk or Panasonic? Beware of off brand junk sold on ebay or other sites CHEAP. They are designed to report back the size they claim to be, but are 1/2 size capacity or less in reality. You never know until you need your photos. The other thing is SD cards fail and are never a good as a BackUp source for files. For file xfers only in general.

Good lesson for all is to be sure all your pics show up on your computer before deleting on camera.
