No, they'll be on the memory card as long as they have not been overwritten with new files. This will be true even if you accidentally "erased" them or even if you reformatted the card.

If you put the card into an external card reader and use SD card recovery software then you should be able to recover the data. Do not use the card afterwards as you'll never be able to trust it again, SD cards are pretty cheap these days so replacement is often only a little more than one would pay to buy and then develop and print a couple of rolls of 35mm film. The only exception is if the card has suffered internal physical damage such as caused by exposure to high voltage static electricity; if so the card and data are both lost.

Best of luck, as long as you don't re-use your card there's a very good chance of getting your photos back. Please don't forget to take a moment to rate my answer.

How to erase memory card

If your photos and videos are stored on the memory card, then remove the 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 your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.
The quickest way to erase the memory card. Go to the camera's Menu and scroll through the settings to Format memory card then format the memory card.

Take note that you'd better remove the memory card from camera, and then connect the memory card to computer with a card reader.

If needed, you can do a quick format of the memory card, and then use asoftech photo recovery to recover the photos.

How to delete pitcures on a polaeoida530

Read the manual, it is there for a reason.
If you lost it, download an electronic version of it, all major manufacturers let you do that.

Everybody needs to read their manual several times.
Read it once, then take some photos. Read it again, and practice what you learned.
Read it again, you'll understand much more this time, then go experiment.

Also keep this in mind:
Memory cards can and do fail, and sooner or later there is a good chance that will happen to you.

The correct thing to do is this:
After a day's shooting, download your photos to your computer.
Backup your images (e.g. onto a CD/DVD).
Post process, sort, delete, etc, then back up the "good" copies somewhere else.

When you have them safely on your computer, format the card in your camera. That erases the photos, but also erases "housekeeping" stuff and errors. It isn't a guarantee, but formatting improves your chances of trouble free use of your memory card.

There are many mobile options for storing and viewing photos, your camera is a very bad choice for that.

Hope helps.

Many photos have disappeared from my camera, it's a Canon PowerShot DS800 IS. After you've taken a bunch do they get stored somewhere automatically? I haven't deleted anything, and I can only see about 5...

Yes they should have been stored automatically to the camera's SD memory card. Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, and take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that are available to help you recover your photos. This blog article reviews and outlines several of the better ones.

What setting should i have the camera on for normal photos, I have a 32 memory card, however after 10 photo's the camera tells me that the memory card is full.

A 32mb card is very small. If you are shooting at the full 8 megapixels, that's why your card is getting full. You should have at least a 1gb card.

Deleting or formatting won't make the data in memory card erased permanently.

Those lost pics are still stored on the memory card, it's just invisible or inaccessible. Only the FAT or NFTS table is erased (the information about where those data were saved), but the real data are still intact there in sectors of the hard drive.

So as long as those photos are not overwritten by new pictures, it's highly possible to recover them. And the MOST Effective way is to rely on some format recovery programs.

Try Asoftech Photo Recovery program, which can recover pictures after deeply scanning the memory card to look for lost pics you accidentally deleted or formatted.

Writing from pc to memory card in camera

Go with the obvious solution. The camera only lets the computer read the card and delete pictures. It does not let you write to the card.

Be aware that if you've edited the photos in any way (opening a photo in a photo editor and then saving it without making any changes counts as editing) then the camera may not display the picture.

Lost pictures?

I'm sorry to say that the card is erased. A format is a complete erase of the memory card. 
However, your pictures aren't necessarily lost. First of all, make sure you don't use the memory card in the camera. As long as you haven't taken any new pictures on the card, you should be able to recover your pictures.
Next, you will need a USB memory card reader that accepts your type of memory card.
Connect the card reader to the PC, then insert the memory card in the memory card reader. Then download this program:
This is a program for recovering lost pictures from formatted memory cards. It's a free trial version, that will show you the photos that can be recovered. To do the actual recovery, you will have to buy the program for $29.
I hope this helps you! Let me know if I can provide more help.
