First do not panic! It is possible to recover your pictures if you take care. Take the card from the camera (powered off)and if it has a "write protect" tab then lock it now. Do not try and write anything to the card or you risk causing more problems. If you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a FREE utility that will recover your photos from the following link: If you need something a little more "user friendly" then you will need to buy the software. If you search the web for photo recovery software you will find many. One I have used successfully is RescuePro that used to be bundled with some Sandisk products. Now you can get it from the link below: You can try the demo to see what you can recover before buying. Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to the card until you can recovered your pictures to your PC safely! Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

Sony Cyber shot 7.2 mega pixels digital camera

This seriously does work. I just took the battery out, placed it back in and when it was accessing I banged it (not even that hard) against my knee and it now can focus in and out. I almost can't believe that it worked, but it surely did.

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.

My camera erased my pictures

These cameras have an internal store and also can use a card. So, when you add a card, it is writing to that store and only shows you the pictures stored there unless you change the device settings or remove the card.
If so, the images you have on the EasyShare One internal store may be originals
Another possibility is that you did a BragBook synch to EasyShare and you might be able to see these images in your 'Favorites' view. The 'Camera Favorites' or BragBook pictures are a smaller version of original images, to allow you to carry more pictures with you to share, but these pictures may be a lower resolution version of the images you took. They would be sufficient for printing 4x6 pictures, but not enlargements.
Change to Favorites mode to see if they show up that way.
Good luck!

You can buy a cheap multi card reader at an office supply store, Best Buy, a computer store or a photographic supply. Use the card reader to read your memory card from your computer
