Question; Have you tried plugging the camera in to the computer with the usb cord?...If not, leave your memory card in the camera and connect the camera via usb cord into the computer, after a few seconds orso a window will come up asking you"what do you want to do with this device" orso, just close (x) that and click on "start" on the desktop. When that opens, click on " my computer". A window named"my computer" will open up showing several devices (depending how many device you have on your computer). For instance, the hardrive is usually marked (c) disk..Look for a "device" with a name that sounds like your camera and open (double click) that. If you don't recognize any devices, then open them all, one by one, (except the hardrive (c) ) and see if there are any folders in there that seems to represent your picture file orso (mine says 100dcism or something like that, I dont know why lol), double click such file and it will open up. If you then see files named gpeg etc then those are your pictures. If you are still not sure then double click one and it will open up, if it is a picture then your picture will come up in full view, voila,you found your pics (they are in the file you openend before yopu actually saw the picture come up)...If you still dont see your picture, just close all windows and repeat process on different "discs" ( (c), (f), (g) and any others, except (c) thats the harddrive usually....Once you've located your pictures copy or cut (hover the mouse pointer over the picture you want and right-click then select cut (this removes the file, picture in thid case, from wherever you cut it, or you can copy it(same right-click procedure) and select"copy" this will leave the pic where it was while making a copy you can "paste" anywhere you want them from the place you found them and paste them in to the folder you want ( I sometimes create a new folder on the desktop and put all my files I take from the camera in there, then later I can sort them to seperate the video's from the picture files....For your problem in particular, I would follow these procedures till I found the new (undeleted ) files you are trying to load into your computer, whern you find those then cut or copy those to wherever you like (ie "my pictures" folder).

E900 wont upload pictures to my PC


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Windows Photo Gallery or any other photo cataloging program.

TRANSFERRING PHOTOS TO COMPUTER
If your photos are stored on the memory card, then removethe memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader.Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of yourworking computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device oran external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card andcopy the photos to your computer.Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. Youcan copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off yourmemory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing anyprograms.
