If you have a computer and a card reader can connect the camera to the computer- do this Download image recovery software form called PC Inspector. Install the program and follow the prompts - it will pull back all your lost images.

If you just did a quick format, it's no problem to get them back. But If you had selected (checked) the low-level format box, you may have a problem. In the meantime, 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:

If she only deleted them instead of formatting them, there are expensive software programs that can retrieve the pictures providing you didn't keep adding more pictures to the card.

Unrecognized format

It sounds like your SD card might be faulty.
It is very unfortunate since the only thing that can help this is to format the card, which will delete the information on the card.

Before formatting I would try to transfer the pictures using a card-reader or go to a shop to see if they are able to retrieve the pictures for you.

Instructions to format the SD card:
Press OK

Canon SD1000 keeps erasing pictures

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:

Finally AFTER you've recovered your photos, consider formatting your card IN YOUR CAMERA (did you do this when you first got the card? if not, this is what eventually happens). Keep in mind formatting the card will also totally and permanently erase the card. Press menu, then select the tools menu, then scroll down to the selection stating your cards memory capacity and select it. Then follow the on-screen prompts for a "low-level" format. This should help prevent this from happening again in the future.

Deleted picture

Hey LucyBe,
Yes there is a way to get your image back. You would need to install a data recovery program on your computer, which there are multiple free programs out there that would suit your needs. Once this program is installed connect your memory card to your computer with a card reader, and as long as you haven't overwritten the deleted image you should be able to retrieve it using the recovery software.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
