I have had success with this camera photo recovery software... Download the program

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

I suggest creating a backup file. This way, you can retreive files that you have accidentaly deleted by acessing the backup file. Try it. Good luck!

I don't know what happened but my pictures are gone and I don't know how to get them back! Please help!!?!

Assuming you didn't download the pictures to your computer ... and as part of the download option, you elected to erase/remove the pictures (after downloading them) from the camera ... and you have not done anything (on the camera menu) to "refresh" or erase the pictures, or reformat the storage media (memory card) ...
then ...
... if the pictures are stored in a memory card .... you can take that memory card out of the camera, insert it into your computer ( ... or use a card reader, inserted into a USB port) ... and see if you can recover the "deleted" data from the memory card ...

... if the camera only has "internal" memory ... connect the camera to your computer ... and when it shows up as a storage media, try to recover the "deleted" data from the memory card ...

You can (find on the Internet) and install and use various (free) software (on your computer) to recover "deleted" files on storage media (memory card, etc.), ... on a Windows PC ... like PhotoRec, PC Inspector File Recovery, Undelete Plus (or Undelete 360), Glary Undelete, Wise Data Recovery, Recuva Free.

Why does display indicate SD card full and no pictures can be taken?

Have you by any chance moved the small slide to lock the card by accident.

When trying to playback photos from SD Card, the message "cannot playback image" is displayed. Happens when using more than one SD card, which rules out that it is the SC card that isn't working.

which rules out that it is the SC card that isn\'t working Not necessarily, switching SD memory card from one camera to another without formatting isn't going to happen. If the SD card was new and not formatted in the camera that it's going to be used in then there could be a lot of different errors occurring. Also if pictures were downloaded from the memory card to the computer and the card not formatted this will cause a problem as well. If you have been deleting the pictures files then again this could be a problem the card needs to be formatted. Another IF is if you downloaded pictures from the computer to the SD card and then put it back in the camera without formatting then it's not going to acknowledge the card. If you formatted the SD card in the computer then it's not going to work or work properly in the camera. Picture files can go from the camera to the computer but not back again because the computer operating system and software is not compatible with the camera firmware. It all comes back to format the memory card in the camera you are using it in before taking pictures.

Won't let me take pictures and/or delete.

Without knowing the make and model of camera I'm just going to guess you are using an SD type memory card and the card has been set to the "Lock" position most likely by accident. I have a diagram that can explain it faster then I can write it.
After downloading pictures to a computer Hard Drive the memory card should also be formatted for the camera it is being used in each time.

Cannot figure out how to move pictures taken on Nikon 3200 without SD card in by accident. Want to move pics from camera to SD card. How?

Use the Copy command in the Playback menu to copy your pictures from internal memory to the SD card, then download them from the card as usual. Full details are in the "Copy" section beginning on page 79 of the manual.

Problem with taking picture with SD card

The only thing I can recommend is using the brands of memory cards that Casio recommends. They are Panasonic, San Disc, Toshiba. Make sure the card is formatted with the camera before use.
