Question about Digital Cameras

1 Answer

Can't retrieve some photos from Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ11.

Photos from a number of sessions can't be read either by the camera or my card reader drive.
The photos I could access I copied and deleted from the card. The 'lost' photos can still not be found, but the card is 80% full.
This problem occurred before, but after removing and replacing the card (as suggested in the troubleshooting) numerous times, the photos returned.
Card has been formatted by the camera.
Card: SD ultra II 1GB
Bought the camera new 2 weeks ago.

First, if you want those photos, dont do anything else to the card yet. Use a utilty like RECUVA (you'll find it at http://www.filehippo.com/download_recuva/) it is good at retrieving images from cards in these situations. and better yet its free.

When you are satisfied that all is lost or found...you'll again need to format the card with the camera not the computer. I would also check with the cameras manufacturer website. look for a Firmware update. if one is posted get that and apply it. Some Flash memery cards have advanded features that cameras need updating to handle.

Finally if this keep happending try a new memory card, flash can have defects.
Good luck!

Panasonic DMC-155 camera no longer uploads photos to PC


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS AND VIDEOS TO A COMPUTER
If your photos and videos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos and to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

Your best bet may be a card reader.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa.

It's 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:

I need to recover deleted pics


I have had success with this... Download Asoftech Photo Recovery program
http://www.asoftech.com/apr/

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.

Single exposure, double download????


From your description, your problem may be using the same card in two different cameras. You will need to format the card in the Lumix to get it to work properly. This will erase the card so download any important pics first. Then, stop trading cards between cameras.

I lost Panasonic LUmix DMC-TZ15 driver


Do you have a USB card reader? Just take the card from the camera, pop into the reader, and you can transfer your photos.
No drivers required unless using Windows 98 or earlier.

Also, the model is wrong, do you mean TZ5? You should be able download software for the camera from www.panasonic.com

Like mem card problems. Try another in the camera, try reading card on a computer via a usb port card reader. Try reformating card using camera FORMAT function.
