Try this...Download the camera photo undelete program Asoftech Photo Recovery from

You must not take anymore pictures on your card. You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader.Put the card in the card reader, open the the program, select the drive where you recover pictures from, then click on start. Wait, for it to do it's magic.

You need to use a card reader either one already in your computer (some have one, some don't). Or buy an external USB card reader. They are around 10.00 and can be found at walmart, bestbuy, frys, probably target.
The problem with built in card readers is that they will usually only read up to a 2G card.

I was not able to recover photos by hooking the camera up to the pc with the usb cord, it just won't work.

This is the important part. Choose the pics you want to recover, then choose recover, a box comes up asking where you want to save to. Choose documents/my pictures or wherever you want to save your pictures too. The pictures ONLY save to your pc and not the card.

Format your card in the camera after you have retrieved your photos and backed them up to an external source.

If the pictures are not overwritten by the new ones, you can recover them back with memory card data recovery program like Card Data Recovery. It is the professional photo recovery utility that can help you recover photos, video, audio, etc. from SD card, mini SD card, microSD card,etc.

Re: no pictures message showing on blue screen when card...

The camera may have damaged the memory card contents when the
batteries ran down. It's always best to take the memory card out
when the batteries are low, because the CPU gets all confused
when the voltage drops, and its behavior becomes erratic.

1) Take out the memory card and put it in a laptop card reader
to see if any of the pictures can still be recovered.

2) If the card looks empty, some of the data may still be there,
but you will need a professional "Data Recovery Program"
specially designed for recovering data from memory cards.

This software is expensive, but you can download a free trial version,
that will show you what data could be recovered, before you buy.

Professional recovery services are also available.

Search the Internet for:
"Data Recovery" and "Camera" and "Memory Card"
software and services.

Did you buy and insert a memory card?
Is the memory card unlocked?
The internal memory is very small and not fit to shoot your pictures.
If you did put in a new memory card, please goto the setup menu and format the card.

The best quick fix for this is to take the memory card out of the camera and read it with a card reader attached to your computer. That won't fix the camera problem but you will get your pictures. Once you have the pictures safe, you can try formatting the card (which will delete everything on it), but it sounds to me like there is an issue with the connections in the card slot.

Erasing the pictures using the computer is the problem. Your camera does not recognize the card anymore. If your pics are safely on your computer, format the card in the camera to get it working again.

My dsc-w80 keeps saving all of my pics to the internal memory

Set camera on playback mode, you will see any saved picture in internal memory. Insert memory card and lcd screen will show you either blue screen if memory card has no picture files or will show you picture in memory card. That means memory card is intact with camera and ready to store fresh picture.
Set camera to camera mode and take few fresh pictures and check them in playback mode.
Let me know if you have additional question.

My fuji finepix s5600 has stopped taking pics,just as i put new batteries into it,i can look at previous photos that i took,but it just wont take the pics,why?

Is it showing any message on screen as to why it won't take pictures or is it when you switch over from viewing to taking pics that it shuts off or just won't let you take pics?

A red image pops up when I take a pic

I chose the DMC-TZ3A since I didn't know what the letter was at the end of the model number for your particular camera. If this is the camera

Here is a link to the manual

If not

Here is link to the Lumix series cameras

Pg 25 indicates that flashing red in the upper right corner is the battery needing to be recharged. If the battery was recently recharge and its turning red on the screen, it could be that the battery isn't holding a charge and may need to be replaced.

I didn't see any other error messages on the screen indicating that icon unless b,c, or d models have a different error message in that area of the screen.

Screen shows full memory card

It's quite possible that it's actually taking photos and storing them to the camera's onboard memory and not the memory card, explaining why it gets full so quickly with two pictures and why you can only delete two pictures. Look for a setting to change the storage to the memory card.
