My daughter got her Kidizoom camera from Santa, which she loves, but on 2 occasions now it has mysteriously "lost" the pictures from its internal memory. Has anyone else had this problem and if so any suggestions as to how to sort???

The Kidizoom uses four standard AA batteries. You may use disposable alkalines or rechargeables. If you choose to use rechargeables, you much charge them using a separate charger. The Kidizoom is not a battery charger.
if everything is working i would think there is a memory problem, have a looking in memory and see if there is a format fertility, if not you will need to conect it to a pc and use the pc format on the vetec to reformat the memory for photos and video, its not the system memory and is safe to format.
My memory card was not securly in the slot. My camera is broken and just randomly ejects the disk. Therefore I am only taking pictures on the camera memory. In my case I took pictures on the disk, then it popped out of place, and I was only reviewing the pictures on the camera memory. I opened the door reinserted the disk and found the lost photos.
The instructions say that you will lose your pictures stored on the internal memory when you remove the batteries. Use a SD card instead of the internal memory, or download the pics from the internal memory before changing the batteries.
There is no software for the computer to recognize and it will not download to your computer automatically. This is what you do:
After connecting the usb cable from the camera to your computer, go into my computer and look for the drive, it will probably show up under removable drives. Can you see the drive VTech 733 there? If so, double click on the drive to open it and find the folder named Photos. Your picture should be there.
I figured it out and boy do I feel dumb. If you have an SD card installed in the camera, there are actually two drives when you open "My Computer" - one is "VTech773", which is the internal memory and the other is "Removable Disk", which is the SD card. If your camera has an SD card and it is set up as the default storage option, then the pictures and videos are located in the "Removable Disk" drive. Here's the text from the owner's manual...
You can connect Kidizoom Camera™ to a PC using the included USB cable. Once connected, you can upload and download files to Kidizoom Camera™ by accessing your camera as a removable storage device. When Kidizoom Camera™ is connected to the PC, a new drive called “VTech 773” will appear on the PC. If there is also an SD memory card (not included) inserted into the camera when it is connected, two new drives will appear. One will be the “VTech 773” drive and the other will be a removable disk drive for the SD memory card.
