    The number of images the card holds depends on the size of the card in Mb and the image size also in Mb
    All this information is in the handbook for the camera.
    The software disc that came with the camera usually has a more comprehensive manual in PDF.
    Browse them both and tell me - the size of the card and the image size
    indeed you camera has most likely options to vary image size[quality] and therefore the number of images it can hold

Lost Pictures - camera or memory card?


The photos on the SD card may have been deleted. To recover deleted photos use the Recuva program.

Recuva (pronounced "recover") is a freeware Windows utility to restore files that have been accidentally deleted from your computer. This includes files emptied from the Recycle bin as well as images and other files that have been deleted by user error from digital camera memory cards or MP3 players. It will even bring back files that have been deleted from your iPod, or by bugs, crashes and viruses!
  • Put the memory card into an USB card reader and plug it into the USB port in your computer, then run the Recuva program.
  • Simple to use interface - just click 'Scan' and choose the files you want to recover
  • Easy to use filter for results based on file name/type
  • Simple Windows like interface with List and Tree view
  • Can be run from a USB thumb drive
  • Restores all types of files, office documents, images, video, music, email, anything.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

Welcome to Fixya

Try the alternate way of transferring the pictures to your computer instead of using cable.

I was transferring pics from my Nikon Coolpix S210 via Nikon transfer. Pressed the deleted icon, and photo's were deleted instantly. Tried to retreive them using a download from the internet, but no joy....


Without being harsh or rude don't do anything to that memory card but take it to someone who has the proper recovery program. There is a chance as long as you haven't formatted the memory card and started shooting new images over the ones you want to retrieve. There are a lot of recovery programs on the Internet but most are for specific memory cards.

I use Lexar memory card because I know the photo Lab I use has recovery programs for Lexar and SanDisk. Some off brand or no name memory cards may be more difficult to extract the data from.

To answer your question "What am I doing wrong" you aren't doing anything wrong except not having the correct retrieval program.

Sorry I know this isn't a quick fix but it's the best way of saving those images.

How to protect pictures so they do not get deleted


Best way is to only delete them 1 by one. Another is to transfer files (pictures) to your computer delete the ones you don't want, format your card and then put the ones you want to keep on your camera back. You can't delete just a few pictures. I carry 3 memory cards. one just has the pictures I want to show people. I load that card from my computer. The other 2 are like great big rolls of film that let me take lots and lots of pictures without the worry of running out of film. I transfer the pictures I want to show people on my camera to the third one and keep the other 2 erased. Most of my pictures are only on my computer and backed up on DVD's.

Memory card error


Try another card. The card can have a life limit, after all it is flash memory.
Also try to use the card in a card reader, not the camera. If that works, and you can save your pics... (remember never try to delete or change any of the pics. on the card from the computer, a lot better chance of corrupting the files...that may be due to the fact that the camera and the computer can be seeing different ways of making folders and reading them...just mention that because I had it happen... always format and delete all pics in only the camera you use that card in.)
If you are successful to transfer your pictures, then format the card in the camera, and see if it will work.
The final on this is that if the card will not format, and will not save pictures, then it is finished. You can try to use it in another kind of camera, sometimes that may work as well.
