Re: Lost My Pictures

I think you have two separate issues going on, but I'm not sure.

The red lightning bolt on a Kodak I believe is a flash that is either not working, or shut off. Try the flash options and enabling the flash, or putting it on auto flash. That should take care of the red lightning bolt.

As for finding your photos, if you use windows XP, go to start, and then search. Your first options would be photos, video, music, click on photos, and search. If you have too, type in *.jpg in the search keyword box.

When you find them, you can move them back to your my pictures folder. This is assuming they are not deleted completely from your hard drive.

Cannnot delete fhotos from my apple iphonethe delete button does not appear

There is a difference between the pictures in your camera rol and the albums you created on the computer and sync with iTunes.
From the Albums created with the computer, you can't delete the pictures. The pictures in the camera roll, you can delete by pressing on the bin symbol on the right bottom corner. Or when you have the thumb nails by pressing select on the top right and after selection, press delete on the left top.

How do I delete photos from my Kodak C143

To delete individual pictures, press the delete button while viewing the picture. The delete button is the top button on the "button bar", marked with a trash can.

To delete all pictures, format the internal memory and/or memory card. Memory cards should be formatted each time you finish downloading your pictures to your computer.

Some of the pictures was lost. How to recover it?

You can often successfully recover deleted files from a PC, phone or camera memory card or USB Memory stick, it just depends on what's happened since the files were deleted.
When you delete files the data itself isn't deleted, just the index entry that says where the data for those files is located. The space containing the deleted files is also now marked as free space so it is available to the system for any new files to be written there instead.

If and when that happens, then it becomes too late to recover your deleted files so it is very, very important to not save any new files or data to the device concerned.
If the deleted files are on a memory card or USB memory stick, just don't save any new files to it.

One of the easiest ways to see if you can recover deleted pictures is to try some photo recovery software. Recommended asoftech photo recovery as it saved my life many times.

Missing pictures on sd card

I had success with this
1. Do not save any new file to memory card.
2. Connect your card to computer. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in My Computer.
3. Download SD card photo recovery software, recommended one is this photo recovery (simply because i was using it and it worked)
4. Install and open the photo recovery program, select your memory drive, and click 'Start' button to start scanning process which will find your deleted photos.
