Unable to recover images

I had a number of personal pictures and videos on my laptop which i later copied them all on my pendrive and later deleted all my files from my laptop. I then gave my laptop to a service centre for servicing. After i got it done i opened my pendrive to check my images and videos which i was unable to view most of my images and videos from the pendrive. The error i get everytime i view my images is "Filename, directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect" for some pics and for some i get the error saying " The image refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer, or on a network. Check to make sure that the disk is properly inserted, or that you are connected to the Internet or your network, and then try again. If it still cannot be located, the information might have been moved to a different location." The file names have weird characters and im unable to understand the issue. I tried recovering my images from Stellar phoenix windows data recovery and managed to recover few pics but unable to recover the others neither could i recover the images from my pendrive. I wish to get my images and videos back. Kindly please help.

SOURCE: External Hard Drive I/O Error

Somehow i tried to format and it was formatted. took pretty long time as 1 terabyte. i thought all is ok as the drive was accessible. Just to double check, i scanned the drive thorugh the seagate manager and it got stuck on 10% for few seconds and then said that the hard disk is faulty and should be immediately returned if under warranty. and to confirm it also gave me read errors http://www.dtidata.com/resourcecenter/2007/05/15/how-to-tell-hard-drive-physical-damage/

so i'm giving it to seagate service centre as it probably has physical faults, bad sectors. and someone told me that 1TB hard drives are not stable.

SOURCE: Recently my external hard disk freezed. i

i would check the image you have saved before formatting your external drive just to make sure you will have it after a format you will lose all data

if you can see your external hard drive

right click on your external drive select properties tools check now you should check now with two boxes you could tick both boxes automatically fix files and attempt repair bad sectors on your drive

have no input while chkdsk utility is in progress any may damage this external drive

also

click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers

if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,


check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems

if this fails to fix the problem
you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap

hope some of this helps you

I Have taken pictures with the camera , after it saves it keeps telling me photo error , im trying to recovery images i have taken , and they are unable to view and when i copy them to my pc , windows says...


Your pictures may be corrupted.You can recover those corrupted pictures with this
1. Do not save any new pictures into the memory card of your camera.
2. Insert the memory card into a card reader. Connect it with computer. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in My Computer.
3. Download recovery software, recommended one is Tenorshare Data Recovery (simply because i was using it and it worked)

4. Install and open the program, select your memory drive, and click 'Start' button to start scanning process which will find your deleted photos.
