Accidentally deleted video from Cannon EOS 600D Rebel T3i

It should be no problem getting it back with recovery software. Just try to stop taking any more photos or videos to lessen the chance of overwriting your lost video. See this article for instructions on how to recover deleted/formatted videos/photos.

What is error 9 mean

Error 9 is usually contributed to processing time. The camera is taking to long to process the picture that has just been taken. I would suggest downloading the pictures you have to the computer and then format the memory card in the camera it is being used in. I'm thinking that you have been deleting the pictures and not formatting, here is a diagram of the menu you need and the sets needed to format the memory card.

This will solve the problem

I have a Cannon EOS Digital Rebel Xti. When I try taking a picture, I keep getting an error message indicating there is a problem with the CF Card. I have replaced the card several time but keep getting...

What you require is to format the Compact Flash Card. The CF card should be formatted when new and after every download. Format the card in the camera it is going to be used it. Constantly deleting pictures on the memory card will cause major corruptions and total failure. Formatting cleans the memory and allows the camera to communicate properly with the CF Card.
I going to give you several diagrams on where to go in your camera to format. these diagrams are screen shots right from your manual.

I own a Canon EOS Rebel XTi. This camera is unpredictable; i.e., I never know when it will decide not to record an image. I have reset it many times to the manufacturer's default settings, and then it...

Okay at least the memory card isn't locked or it wouldn't be taking any pictures. Couple things one is did your format the memory card before using it? Do you format the memory card after downloading pictures to the computer? Do you just unplug the USB cable or remove the memory card from a card reader before doing a safe disconnect? What I believe is that you delete and delete and delete pictures from the card and it's not corrupted with a lot of useless data residue. Short answer to your problem is format the memory card in the camera you intend to use it in. Have a great day

While using my Canon Rebel XT camera today the 4MB CF card only allowed me to take a few pictures and then the "CF Full" started to blink. I deleted the card but it is continuing to blink "Full CF".

mine has done this to me before.

dump all of your photos on to your computer
put the card back in the camera
in playback mode, hit the menu button.
in the menu, scroll over to the first settings tab.
there should be a "format" option.
Format your card.
this *should* fix it.

Hello there Danika,

You can install a utility software to recover the pictures from a formatted memory card. Just install the link below, its free and effective:

Then hookup your camera to your computer. The system will recognize the device. Then run Recuva software and choose to recover the drive letter for your camera. It has an easy step by step process and you can even restore the pictures to your computer or back to the camera's memory card as well.

If you need further assistance, please let me know.
