I don't know what happened but my pictures are gone and I don't know how to get them back! Please help!!?!

Assuming you didn't download the pictures to your computer ... and as part of the download option, you elected to erase/remove the pictures (after downloading them) from the camera ... and you have not done anything (on the camera menu) to "refresh" or erase the pictures, or reformat the storage media (memory card) ...
then ...
... if the pictures are stored in a memory card .... you can take that memory card out of the camera, insert it into your computer ( ... or use a card reader, inserted into a USB port) ... and see if you can recover the "deleted" data from the memory card ...

... if the camera only has "internal" memory ... connect the camera to your computer ... and when it shows up as a storage media, try to recover the "deleted" data from the memory card ...

You can (find on the Internet) and install and use various (free) software (on your computer) to recover "deleted" files on storage media (memory card, etc.), ... on a Windows PC ... like PhotoRec, PC Inspector File Recovery, Undelete Plus (or Undelete 360), Glary Undelete, Wise Data Recovery, Recuva Free.

How do i delete photos from a nikon d 60 digital camera

To delete individual pictures, press the trashcan button while viewing the picture, then confirm.
To delete all pictures, format the memory card. FixYa is full of people asking how to retrieve pictures from cards that hadn't been formatted recently.
The format command is in the setup menu. Full details are in the "Formatting Memory Cards" section of the manual (page 24 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one here.

If the photos are on a memory card, format it. Memory cards should be formatted each time you finish downloading your pictures. FixYa is full of people asking how to salvage photos from cards that hadn't been formatted recently.

If the photos are in the camera's internal memory, format it.

The format command is setup menu. Press the MENU button, select the wrench icon, then select the camera-slash-card symbol. Full instructions are in the "Format Memory/Format Card" section of the manual (page 109 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one at

How do l free up my memory stick after downloading the pictures?

assuming that you are talking about a memory card ..just get into view mode..and on the menu choose storage ..than options and clear memory card ..or ..just again in view mode..choose a picture and options and when you try to delete will ask for multiple delete them all and delete ..or just insert the card into a card reader and when it shows in the my computer folder open it all pictures and than press delete ..
the fastest way though is to simple select in the main menu the storage there select card ..and on options format card ...this will erase all on it ..and format it in the same time for best performance in the device ..

Pictures will not goto memory card. They only store to camera, therefore i can only take about 5-6 pictures?

Are the pictures stored in the memory important? Then go into the menu , scroll to "copy" and follow the instructions for copying from internal memory to card. Then, remove your card, bring up a picture from the internal memory and push the delete button...choose to delete all. Then, download any pics on your memory card to your computer using a card reader. Then, insert your card back into the camera, go into the menu, scroll to "format" and follow the on-screen instructions. After all this, you should be ok.

Kodak M853 error message

My first inclination was that maybe the lock on the side of the SD card was on but after you mentioned that it worked in your mom's camera, I don't think that's the case. You may want to check that though. There's a little switch on the side and just make sure that it's switched to the "unlock" side.

The only other thing would be to format the memory card. When you do that, you will lose all the pictures on it. So, if it happens to work in ***********'s camera, I would transfer the pictures you already have saved on there and copy them to a cd before formatting the memory card.

In order to format your memory card, press the menu button, then go into the setup menu. There should be a list of settings. Scroll down to the format option and choose to format the memory card.

I hope this helps :)

PC will not recognize memory card

even though the card has video files on, this should not prevent you from seeing the still pictuers. Try and open my computer and open the removable drive to view the pictures.

Yes and in several methods as below listed. Since your posting refers to a generic problem for all digital cameras and not only an Olympus FE-230, some of the settings may have a different nomenclature or button name.
1. When you download pictures to you PC, rather than copy, select move; or
2. If you want to erase one picture at a time from the camera - press on the power button, then menu button, once menu is displayed, arrow down/up, you will be asked to erase the picture displayed, select yes/no by up/down, then press OK (menu button); or
3. If you want to erase all contents of the memory card of the camera - press on the power button, then menu button, once menu is displayed, arrow right, down to select card, right to select card setup, right to enter card setup, arrow down to select format or erase all, OK. Erase all just erases the files, format erases all and re-initialize the memory card; or
4. Remove memory card from camera and insert into a memory card reader attached to USB of your PC. The memory from the camera will be treated as a removable device and you can view, move, copy, delete/erase, format. This option seems to be most effective in viewing all contents under Windows Explorer with the view setting set to Thumbnail.
5. Connect the camera via the supplied cable to any USB port of your PC. The camera will be treated as a removable device and you can view, move, copy, delete/erase, format. This option seems to be most effective in viewing all contents under Windows Explorer with the view setting set to Thumbnail.

Specifically for an Olympus FE-230:
1. Press the < or > buttons to display the picture you want to erase;
2. Press the trash can button (bottom right);
3. Press the UP button to select [YES], press OK;


To erase all:
1. Press the MENU button to display the top menu in playback mode;
2. Select [ERASE], [ALL ERASE], and press OK;
3. Select [YES], and press OK

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

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.
