Question about Digital Cameras
When putting the memory card into the hp 1350 to download we received a memory card error, we then put the card back into the camera and the camera asked FORMAT ? and my husband formated the memory card. Are we unable to retrieve these pictures. Are these pictures lost ? can we recover them ?
Once the memory card is formatted, the files saved or pictures will be deleted and there is no way to retrieve the images.
I would advise that you transfer the pictures first to your PC before formatting the memory card.

When you have formatted a memory card in error the pictures can be retrieved again. using and your pc. You can download and application online to do this. Just do not take any pictures with the memory stick as you will over write the lost pictures. I am using card recovery to find my lost pictures.

Download a copy of CardRecovery (@ www.cardrecovery.com). The free trial will allow you to determine if any of the photos are retrievable. If they are, buy the software. The software can do exactly what it says it can do: "It can effectively recover lost, deleted, corrupted or formatted photos and video files from various memory cards."

Maybe. I answered an earlier post suggesting a free program Zero Assumption Recovery. It worked brilliantly for me. Formatting the card could cause problems, but it will be worth trying. BTW, don't take any new pictures until you have attempted the recovery or you will certainly have lost your pictures.

I had this problem too. I ended up using a refrigerator magnet, strongest one I had on hand, to scramble the card. The camera then recognized the card as a brand new unformatted card and formatted it as usual.
