I have an L100 camera and I made the mistake of pushing the formating button and I believe I lost all of my pics. Is this true because I do not see any of pics?

I am using kodak easyshare m530. I recently took my family pics on a picnic but when i came home i found that i had lost all my pics. I would just like to know if there is an auto format kind of thing


Digital cameras do not have auto format. The format can only be carried out by going to the camera's menu and to select the format function.
Try using Recuva to recover your photos.

Recuva (pronounced "recover") is a freeware Windows utility to restore files that have been accidentally deleted from your computer. This includes files emptied from the Recycle bin as well as images and other files that have been deleted by user error from digital camera memory cards or MP3 players. It will even bring back files that have been deleted from your iPod, or by bugs, crashes and viruses!

  • Simple to use interface - just click 'Scan' and choose the files you want to recover
  • Easy to use filter for results based on file name/type
  • Simple Windows like interface with List and Tree view
  • Can be run from a USB thumb drive
  • Restores all types of files, office documents, images, video, music, email, anything.
  • Supports FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, exFAT, NTFS, NTFS5 , NTFS + EFS file systems
  • Restores files from removable media (SmartMedia, Secure Digital, MemoryStick, Digital cameras, Floppy disks, Jazz Disks, Sony Memory Sticks, Compact Flash cards, Smart Media Cards, Secure Digital Cards, etc.)
  • Restores files from external ZIP drives, Firewire and USB Hard drives
  • It's fast, tiny and takes seconds to run!

I have formated by mistake and all my pictures were erased. how to you unformat and get them back? I am using Canon A450


Take no more pics until you've recovered your photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that may help you recover your photos. This article reviews and outlines several of the better ones:

How do you erase all of the stored pics on the sd card at once?


Use the Format command to quickly delete all images from the memory card. This will also prevent fragmenting of the memory - which can significantly slow the transfer of images to your computer - and increase the amount of time it takes to save a picture after pressing the shutter button.

To format a card on in your camera, at the main menu choose "Settings" then select "Format".

I hope this helped!

How do I erase all of the photos on the memory stick?


The best way to erase all photos on the memory card is to format it. This should be done every time you finish downloading your pictures to your computer, to prevent the card from getting fragmented.

To format a card on the L100, from the main menu select Settings (the gear and wrench icon). From there select Format.

Format is used to clean everything off your memory card or memory device. Do not format until you have downloaded your pics.

I seems they are lost.

Format button deleted my memory card???


Format will wipe clean your memory-card like new - Always.
so normally avoid that button.

if you lost some photos using the format then there maybe some chance to get them back.

take out the card and put it in external card reader.

Now get hold of some file recovery software like 'GetDataBack for FAT32' (buy/borrow/steal :) ) install it on your computer, GetDataBack should be able to pull back the data.

Let me know if any more clarifications needed.

Pushed the Format button on my L100 Samsung Digital camera and my memory card was erased??? Please explain this?


formatting the memory card automatically erases all the files in the memory card.
it's like restoring the memory card to factory settings to be compatible with your camera.

when you format the memory card using the camera the camera erases everything then creates folders that the camera needs to store pictures in your memory card.

you can try to look for software that can TRY to retrieve the images but i cannot assure you that this will work
