Question about Canon PowerShot A410 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Gone? I had my memory card in a ready hooked up to my computer. I took several pictures off the card and saved them to my computer. But I left several pictures on the card. I put the card in my camera and got a no image message on my camera. I took the card out put it back in my computer and was able to view the photos. I but it back in my camera and there were still not available. So I went to the menu of my camera and selected the format card button. Now it says my card is empty. Is there anyway to get my pictures back!

Re: Gone?

Buy a memorycard reader and stick it in the computer. not by usb cable on the camera


You might use a program like ontrack easy recovery.
choose data recovery then formatrecovery.

I accidentally deleted some pictures I took out with my samsung s5 this afternoon. However the pictures were saved on my memory card. Is there any way I can retreave these pictures

If you have only deleted the photos and have not taken additional photos or used the card in any way is is very likely they can be restored,

First lock away the SD card until we are ready. Find another and after saving some test images delete the images on the test SD card.

Pandora Recovery has saved my bacon and was a breeze to use.
Next step download and practice several times with your test SD until you are confident.

Next open the lock and after your are done just be happy!!

Hope this helps?

Make sure you have no pictures on the internal memory of the camera. If you do, format the internal memory with no card in the camera. Then, download any pics you can save from the card to your computer. Then, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase and optimize the card for the camera.

Nikon d100 tok several pictures and they are not on card

It sounds like it may have reformatted itself and if thats the case, they are gone. Some camera's have the option built in, then again, your computer might have done it when plugged into the card reader. I hope this can help shed some light on what may have happened, but sorry to say, if the memory card is now empty, chances are slim on recovering the pics.

Help with kodak M753 camera and memory card!

If you format the card, the pictures are gone leaving you with a blank memory card.

Format the card in your camera, then load it up in your computer and see if the cycle goes away.

Once you get a picture on the memory card and in your computer, keep an eye on the memory specs reporting on the computer and see if there is anything unusual. I've heard of a few defective cards but its rare.

Cannot access pics

Once you took pictures without a memory card, all pictures taken will automatically be saved on the INTERNAL MEMORY of the camera.
When taking pictures with a memory card, all pictures are just saved on the memory card itself.
If you are seeing 100-757 on the LCD screen. It means that there are already 757 pictures taken from the first time you've used the camera.
It is possible that some of the pictures are in the internal memory and some are in the memory card.

1) Remove memory card out of the camera
- Turn on camera
- View pictures on the internal memory
by just pressing on the PLAY mode button
(lowest of the 3 little buttons)
- Pictures seen are just the ones saved on the internal memory

2) Return memory card back in the camera
- Turn on camera
- View pictures on the internal memory
by just pressing on the PLAY mode button (
lowest of the 3 little buttons)
- Pictures seen are just the ones saved on the memory card itself

*** If you want to transfer pictures on the internal memory of the camera to your MEMORY CARD, you just have to follow the steps below:
- Make sure there is a memory card inside the camera
- Turn on camera
- Press on PLAY mode button to view pictures
- Press MENU/OK button
- Keep scrolling to the right until you see COPY TO CARD
- Select YES using the arrow keys
- Press MENU/OK to confirm
* When you've done these steps, all pictures from the INTERNAL MEMORY of the camera will be copied to your MEMORY CARD but it depends on the space left on your memory card

** If still, you could not view the pictures, it's possible that the pictures are really gone when you have transferred the previous pictures to your computer.

** Once you have transferred pictures to your PC, and you have deleted those on your camera, the FILE NAME of the pictures will not start from 100-001 again unless you have reset the file name on the settings of your camera.

In example, i already have 256 pictures on my camera so the filename reads 100-256 for the last picture taken. And then i decided to transfer those 256 pictures to my PC and i deleted those immediately after being transferred. So, as i took another picture, FILENAME will start with 100-257 if i have not reset
the FILE NAME settings to 100-001.

Hope i've helped you enough.

How do I transfer pictures onto the memory card?

You should be able to download the pictures if they are on the camera or memory card to your pc, just browse the folder in windows for the camera name and and the pics will be in that folder, because it is just another form of a media device.
