    The LCD is very dim and sometimes you cannot see the display. Evne in the preview mode you cannot see the images and you cannot see them when you take pictures. The display is on and the brightness is set for the highest. The camera still works, however, the images on the LCD are barely visable. I tried adjust the contrast, nothing seems to work.

All my photos from yesterday were deleted, and I have no idea how. No one touched it. I was fiddling with the settings last night. Could I have accidently set it to auto-delete or something?


I think you accidently selected FORMAT option from settings, Formatting the memory card erase all the data including protected images and other file types. So, once you formatted the memory card there is no way to restore them.

Lost vacation photos...message is memory card failure

As long as the xD card was not formatted it is possible to recover the images that were accidently erased,lost or corrupted. You can go to the following website link and download an image recovery software program that is free of charge.
You want to download a program called Zero Assumption Recovery. It is a very simple program to use and many people have had much success in recovering lost images.

Data recovery is a booming industry, and many appropriate services and software can be found by searching regional phone and business directories or the Internet for terms such as "image recovery" or "data recovery".

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.

Canon Powershot A570 digital camera I had around 250 images in my memory stick, but all of a sudden when I tried to click another photo, all the images disappeared and showed the last picture clicked...

As all your photos are stored in your Canon digital camera's memory stick you could tryCard Data Recoverywhich will help you recover pics without casusing any damage to your photos. My bff recommended this extremely easy-to-usel software to me and he had used it successfully to recovered photos, music, etc. from his Sony memory card. Best wishes!
