Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 Digital Camera

3 Answers

Lost images please help!

Hi, took 100 photos on sat, used the camera on sunday and it said "format error" and would not take a picture, went to view mode and all the images were gone. We were then able to take more photos which we have retrieved, but the other images have gone! Is there any way of retrieving them? I have gone on to PC to download and only sundays' images were there. The camera is Hitachi hdc-571es Digital.

    I paid for card recovery softwear £32 , looked at a few sites all seemed to charge , might try to get the money back from the camera manufacturer but won't hold my breath!

    That's the one I used the trial just gets you a preview to download the software you have to pay, i think they know how precious your photos are to you and know that you will pay up, these were a once in a lifetime trip to disney world, I'm just glad I got 2/3 of the images and not all were lost. Thanks for your replies

Hello EmmaBrown768,
There are many softwares available on the internet that can retrieve the deleted data. One of them is available at;
http://www.cardrecovery.com/
You can search for "memory card data recovery software" on search engine (I used Google) and it would give you bundles of softwares and many of them would be free. So try and let me know if this helps :)

All the best.

Regards,
Srinivas

    There is a trial software at
    http://www.cardrecovery.com/
    It sounds promising .. try using the trial version rather than buying the entire software as you might not fall into the kind of situation that you are in.

  • Srinivas Dhulipala
    Srinivas Dhulipala Apr 16, 2009

    Ah .. I get your point. Anyways you have bought the software now so no point in searching for free software. Although there are thousands of ways you can get a software but its illegal and cannot be discussed here :P
    I am glad that you got your photos back as photos might be worth much more than what you have paid for the software.
    However in case you need any assistance please feel free..

    Regards,
    Srinivas

Cannot open picture, get an error message, An error is preventing the photo from being displayed. using vista


Depending on what format you took the pictures in you may need to load the image editing software that camecame with the camera in order to view your photos and convert them to jpeg so your computer recognizes them. Check the settings on your camera and make sure it is set to jpeg not raw.

Take no more pics until you've recovered your photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that may help you recover your photos. This article reviews and outlines several of the better ones. Now after you've recovered your photos, consider formatting the card in the camera to prevent this from happening again.

Hi,
Actually the camera is fine and the cause of problem is memory card, Mostly cheaper cards do this but the original cards don't. And as far as concern that you have lost many precious pics, No need to worry about it. Just install any recovery software on your PC and with the help of the software you can get back your pics, Secondly, shift all your pics on memory card in your PC and then format the card through camera, this will solve your problem.(Remember that run recovery software before you format the card if you need to get back your data from memory card)
Thanks

'File error' message on samsung L200 camera when viewing a photo


Possible solution:

I had/have the same problem using L200 and SDHC memory card, called Samsung. Can't view certain pictures on camera or computer, camera freezes when viewing those certain pictures, green light flashing.

Samsung support told me that I needed to copy my (good) pictures to a computer first because a memory format will erase everything. Then format (menu->settings->format->yes) my memory card. Tried this just now and took some new pictures, so far so good.

Format of sd card on canon ixus 60 lost pictures


Try PC Inspector "Smart Recovery" from the following listing. Select "Intensive" mode from the File/Settings menu. The program may need to run all night in this mode. If this doesn't recover the photos, am afraid then that they're permanently gone.

My memory card is full but my camera reads "no images."


Don't fret, your images are probably still there. But 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:

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/recovering-those-accidentally-lost.html

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're cheap:

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_st?keywords=card+reader&rs=172282&page=1&rh=n%3A172282%2Ck%3Acard+reader&sort=price

And finally, after (and only after) you recover your images, format your card. This should refreshen your card to be usable again. Format it in the camera, using a "Full" or "Low Level" format, and NOT a "Quick" format. Keep in mind that the photos will no longer be recoverable after doing the Full or Low Level format.

I Reset the settings on my camera and lost all my pictures!


Maybe, maybe not. You can try using Windows properties to fix an error. If that doesn't work, try image recovery software, which is usually downloadable from the net. You then run the software on the card and hopefully your images are readable. Save them to CD or hard drive, and format the card in the camera to remove bad or fragmented data.

File error


I have seen this problem with generic SD memory cards so it could be a faulty memory stick.  Try to get a replacement.  If you want to try to recover the pictures you have taken, I suggest Zero Assumption Recovery (Google for it). Check to see if it is compatible with your camera before downloading.

Picture Error


Hi, It is possible that the memory of your camera got corrupted. You can try and format the memory and see if it will clear any errors and make the memory (card) available for use of the camera. Should you want to try and recover any images stored in the memory card, it has to be a removable one that you can plug in to a card reader attached to a PC. Run data recovery software to hopefully recover whatever you can from the memory. You can also format the memory with your PC and use a disk checking utility to check for any other errors. Thereafter, if things are ok, it will be ready for use of the camera. Hope this be of some use to you. Post back how things went or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
