I was attempting to transfer pix taken on my cell phone to a memory card and accidentally hit the button to erase all pix from the phone before they were transferred. Is there any way to recover the data?? Please help!

    Thank you for your suggestion. Doesn't look like the phone came with a USB to hook up to the computer. Any ideas how I can accomplish this?

  • not2tekkie Feb 04, 2009

    It doesn't that I'm aware of. It's a pretty basic phone.

  • not2tekkie Feb 04, 2009

    No, that's what I was trying to do. I have a new phone and was in the process and taking the pictures off the old phone by transferring them to a memory card. The phone menu changed on me and somehow I accidentally erased the pics from the phone before they were transferred to the card. I was hoping there was some sort of "undo" process built into the phone that I wasn't seeing.

    Thanks! The phone is an LG, model VX8100. I looked through the manual but couldn't find anything so if you can, that'd be fantastic!

  • not2tekkie Feb 05, 2009

    No, I don't have that cable...it did not come with the phone. I suppose I'll have to buy that separately?

  • not2tekkie Feb 05, 2009

    Ok...I will get one and keep you posted on my success. Thanks so much for all your help so far. I hope to report back that I've recovered my pix! :-)

Www.recuva.com it's a freeware program... download and install it... hook up your phone to the computer and see if that program finds the phone... if it does .... recover the deleted files

    what method does the computer hook up to your computer (if any)

    unless that phone actually hooks up to a computer i'm not sure how i can help you.... are the pictures normally stored on the memory card ?

  • Roberta Smith
    Roberta Smith Feb 04, 2009

    yes i know what the topic says... but what is the exact brand and model of your phone i'll see if i can't find the manual and look and see if there is a "fix"

    http://www.lge.com/support/manual.jsp .. you can get the manual here... on page 94 it list a usb cable to connect the phone to a pc... do you not have the cable ?

    pretty much any computer store or even walmart will have them... take the phone with you but it should be a mini b connector on one end and a usb on the other. it should allow you to connect your phone to your pc and hopefully recover the pics you are after.

    it should work fine but don't panic if it doesn't work with that program... i'm not sure you know this one but do NOT add any more things to your phone including pics till you have attempted to recover what was deleted... it will be overwritten and make the success of recovery more difficult.
    and we are basically all volunteers on this site... a fixya rating would be appreciated.. thanks

Have you tried erasing old pix and text messages? If you check your phones available memory, and you have a lot of pix etc you can get a micro sd card and move your pix and videos to it. You check memory by going into menu, then se1ttings/tools, then phone info , other information usually...Good Luck

All my contacts have gone from my nokia 6500 slide phone. i try to switch to phone or sim but they still arnt there but when i get a text it still comes up with the persons name so they must be there...


Most probably you've accidentally transferred them to Memory Card. If it has taken place, no problem at all.

Just connect your Phone to the Computer and the Memory Card will pop up. Select `Open Folder to View Files' and you may find your Contacts therein the `Contact' Folder.

All you've to do is Move them from the Memory Card to the Phone Memory.

If you still find it complex to do so, please visit any Mobile Merchant or your Nokia Care and they'll do this for you.

Phone memory used UP! HELP


Navigate or go to the present location of the files and just cut and paste it to the memory card. You should use Nokia Pc Suite software that comes with the phone or over nokia's website .

Memory


If you deleted some files in the file manager, they are gone for good.
I don't know what you mean by "erase the memory in the file manager" !

Transfering Pictures


if you have a card reader on your computer you can copy the pics from your memory card on your phone via the card reader. this is about the easiest way that i know. I have not seen good sync programs for this phone.
