I have a ixus 700. I was trying to make more space for pics and I went to format and checked "low level format" and clicked ok. Afterwards I couldn't find my pics. Were they saved somewhere or did i lose them.

Normally I'd be optimistic, except that you selected the worst case of low-level format. You can try the following freeware programs, but recommend starting with PC Inspector Smart Recovery, and let it run all night in intensive recovery mode:

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're cheap:

I have a Canon Ixus 700 with a 2GB SD card. I dont know why, but sometimes after I take a picture it deletes the previous ones. For instance, I have taken 20 pictures, everything ok, when I take the 21st...


Have you ever connected the camera to your computer for downloading and then disconnected it without using the "safely remove hardware" function? If so, you could have corrupted the camera. Try going into the menu and find "reset" to get back to factory default settings. Also, have you ever tried using a separate card reader for downloads? It's easier and faster and it's entirely possible that your missing pics will show up. fa1b737.jpg

Photos from Ixus 100 won't display on laptop after transfer - may be a problem with the SDHC card? Can see pics on camera but not on computer - other sdhc card transferred without a problem


This is often down to a lack of battery power - check the charge level.  Level may be OK for the moment of time you need to take a pic, but will not support a long transfer operation.
Its always best to use a card-reader. If the computer can "see" the card, then any photo-program should read the card.

Whwthwr Canon IXUS 700 can accept Micro SDHC card


Sorry, but according to Canon's technical specs, your camera was designed only for use with standard SD card format. SDHC format will not work with it, and will likely give you a memory card error.

Lost pictures?


I'm sorry to say that the card is erased. A format is a complete erase of the memory card. 
However, your pictures aren't necessarily lost. First of all, make sure you don't use the memory card in the camera. As long as you haven't taken any new pictures on the card, you should be able to recover your pictures.
Next, you will need a USB memory card reader that accepts your type of memory card.
Connect the card reader to the PC, then insert the memory card in the memory card reader. Then download this program: http://www.datarescue.com/photorescue/download.htm
This is a program for recovering lost pictures from formatted memory cards. It's a free trial version, that will show you the photos that can be recovered. To do the actual recovery, you will have to buy the program for $29.
I hope this helps you! Let me know if I can provide more help.
Regards,
/Chris

Formatting a 4GB SD card for my canon ixus 700


The IXUS 700 works with SD cards, 2GB and smaller. It will not work with higher-capacity SDHC cards. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

The IXUS 700 is called the SD500 in some parts of the world. You may download the SD500 manual and more from here.

Canon Powershot A630 video recording issue


This could be your memory card going bad. Recommend trying a "low level" format of the card to see if that jump starts it. First download all images and videos as the format will erase them from the card. Next press the menu button and select the settings (tools) menu. Go down to the format option, and press the "Func Set" button. Make sure "Low Level" format option is checked before selecting OK. After you format the card, try the video to see if the problem is fixed. If the above didn't help, recommend trying a different card.

Jpg files corrupt


After you've donloaded your pictures, have you tried formatting your card in the camera? Press the Menu button, then go to the settings (tools) menu. Go down to the Format option. Select "Low Level" format if available in your menu. Again make sure that you have downloaded your pictures first as this will also erase your card.

If the above doesn't work, have you tried using an SD card reader? If so, the next thing to try would be a different card reader. And finally, have you done a recent sweep for spyware on your computer. Spyware can cause temporary hangup/hiccups that could potentially corrupt your download.

Lost of pictures from memori card


The camera does not support low level format, so the pictures may still be on the card.

To _TRY_ to restore your images, get a USB SD-card reader (they are pretty cheap), and try a utility that restores files on memory cards, such as VaioSoft Recovery Manager 1.5

Lower level format problem


Unfortunately, there is little you can do since low level formatting just as same as formatting a hard drive on a computer. There is one way that I know of called data recovery/forensics but this service is extremely expensive. A forensic program called "EnCase" will read any data on the card but the data may be corrupted to the point where there won't be anything of use.
