If you cannot find all your photos on the old folders, you can try to use a photo recovery freeware:

This photo data recovery freeware was found when the camera of my friend accidentally formatted by his little daughter. All his inner stored photos were gone. But, this freeware finally saved all his photos back successfully. So, I also believe it will restore all your inaccessible photos back from this camera for free:

Note: Next time, you should never forget back up everything important before you do any change to it.

Usually when you create a new folder on the camera, the camera only shows photos in the new folder. If you go back to the prior folder, the photos should be there. If not, the recovery software solution posted previously should work.

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:

After you've recovered your photos, consider formatting the card IN YOUR CAMERA. This should help prevent such episodes from happening again. This will also erase the card, so make sure that you've recovered the photos first.

Press menu, then select the tools menu. Scroll down to the selection showing the capacity of your card and select it. Follow the on-screen prompts for a "Low-Level" format.

Uploaded pictures are out of order


After downloading the photos to your computer then click on Date created at the top of the your picture folder. The photos will the sort by the date the photos were taken starting from the earliest date. If you click on Date created again it will sort by the latest date the photos were taken.

How do i rename pictures so that my computer won't think they are duplicates?


Rename the photos on the computer before you download the new photos.
OR
Create a new folder (say Photos1) in another area away from where the existing photos are located in your computer and move all the existing existing into the new Photo1 folder.
Then when you download the new photos from your camera then there will be no conflict or the need to rename the existing photos.
Later, you will need to create another folder and move the current photos into this folder before you download the next lot of photos from your camera.

I had taken pictures at my son's 16th bd party. I had looked at them on the camera throughout the night. I took a picture and tried to look at it and the camera said file error. None of the pictures...


Take no more pics until you've recovered your photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that may help you recover your photos. This article reviews and outlines several of the better ones:

Internal camera memory is only 7 pictures, so I bought a 2mb memory card and can not download pictures. PC does not recognize UB port. Went to camera menu and touched 'format' and camera deleted all...


Well, first of all, format completely erases the card so those pics are lost. In the future, use a card reader to download your pics to a folder you create on your desktop.

Try using a card reader to download the missing 1000 pics. In the future, don't leave so many pics on the card...they aren't made for long storage. 0b2a25a.jpg

Card Error


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 very inexpensive.

The reason this occurred is that you likely never formatted the card. The card will work fine in the beginning but eventually will corrupt. AFTER you've recovered the photos, format the card in your camera to prevent this from happening again (dig out that instruction manual to figure out how). Keep in mind formatting will also totally erase your card, so again only do this after you've recovered the photos.

I have a folder of photos on my camera which I can see on the computer but I cannot see on the camera when I go on the Quick View. How can I see the folder of photos on my camera?


did you put the folder onto the camera using a PC ?
Most cameras make their own file structure, and so you cannot view any added folders. You would have to put the picutres into the folders created by the camera -  usually Card\DCIM\100_1  or similar.
Dont create folders on your card, always put the files into the correct folder.

Hi

The camera creates its own folder named " DCIM " during the initial Format process
New folders would be created in this folder. To recover your lost images

Try removing the memory card and connecting it via a card reader/usb adapter to browse the contents of the card. Save all pictures elsewhere on your PC.


But chances are when you created the new folder the camera may have deleted the contents of the default folder. (the previous existing photos)

Save any photos you can find & re-format the memory card using Camera settings menu.
