Some options might be:

  • Access the data card by itself, by plugging your card into a card reader hooked to your computer and download/copy through Windows explorer
  • If you don't see the photos, you can use some Unerase software on the internet to try and recover deleted files. This is if you haven't yet written to the disk.
There are some sophisticated programs that help you to extract data and try to recover information. Here are some links.

How do I retrieve pictures after they have gone missing from my card?

So the pics vanished from the memory card, right? Perhaps you can insert the card to your computer and try a photo recovery tool on it. Give this app a try if you're a Mac user. Recover Digital Photo Music and Video on Mac OS

I need to know how to have the date stamp print on the pics I take. Very important that I have every pic date stamped. How dod I do it. Also, I have the M580 digital camera but I didn't see a choice...

Unfortunately your camera does not have the feature to have the date stamp visible on the pictures. It does, however, save the date and time information on every photo in EXIF data. Every photo taken with this camera (and most all digital cameras) contain hidden EXIF data containing the exact date and time the photo was taken as well as other information such as aperture, shutter speed, flash mode, etc. To view this data you can look at the properties of the photo using a photo program or even windows.

Hi i need to put the date/time stamp onto my footage. So i can present it in court..please help Adam

Google BatchPhoto and download the software. The program has a free 30 day trial and it'll add the date/time stamp to your photos. BatchPhoto can read the original date/time when the photos were taken from the embedded EXIF data. It can add the date/time on dozens of pics very fast and in one operation. Also it offers extensive options for setting the timestamp: the font, color and even the text's transparency can be adjusted, also the date format as well as placement of the stamp are fully customizable.

In playback/review mode of photos, only some appear while others are blank. All photos are present when uploaded to the computer or displayed at a photo kiosk, but only intermittent photos can be reviewed...

If, after viewing the pics on a computer, you don't use the "safely remove hardware" function before pulling out the cord/card, the files on the card may become corrupted and not recognized by the camera anymore.

Why corrupted data message on photos taken on Canon A610?

Cards and cameras can be corrupted by pulling the USB cord out of the computer without using the "safely remove hardware" function. Sometimes, a card can be rescued by formatting it in the camera although this completely erases it so download any pics first using a card reader if necessary.

Can't get the photos to download from Scandisk. Format issue?

if u remove the card while the cam is on then it sometimes occurs the files may get corrupted so copy all the photo to a computer then format the card then copy it again to the card then insert it to your cam all cam pics are in jpeg extension so check the extension of the pics while copying to your card.

Looks like you have managed to corrupt your memory card, this is normally caused by the card being taken out of a camera/computer while data is still being written to the card.

You may be able to recover the images using a file recovery program.

You could try some of the free ones they seem to work ok from my experince.

Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're cheap:
