Hi,

Please let us know whether you formatted the memory card after the images were deleted from the memory card. Also, have you shot new pictures using this memory card after the pictures were deleted?

If the image files have not been over-written or damaged beyond recovery, then they can be recovered using file recovery software. You can try Recuva which can be downloaded free from: http://www.piriform.com/recuva

Hope this solves your problem. For more help and clarifications, please reply to this post. Thanks for using FixYa.

Can't see icon on computer with camera connected. trying to down load pics. Reloaded program from disc. Still can't see icon


Try 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 any photo cataloging program, such as Canon ZoomBrowser or Picasa.

I took a few pictures with out my sd card in my Nikon D50, how do I get those pictures off my camera?


do you have a usb cable to connect your camera to your pc?
Then generally by pressing the power button once the usb cable is connect, your pc will recognise your camera and then follow the onscreen instruction.

I need to dowload pics but no cd to my camera


If your computer is relatively new and has memory card readers built in just take your SD memory card from the camera and stick it in the reader or go buy one. Most ppl don't use the cable from camera to computer, wastes batteries.

Internal memory??


Highly recommend that you consider using a card reader to download you pictures. You insert the camera's memory card into the reader, and then insert the reader into a USB port on your computer. The card then shows up as a hard drive so that you can simply copy/paste or drag your picture files onto your computer. Card readers are much more faster in downloading pics, do not require the use of your camera's batteries, and provide much more reliable downloading of the pictures (fewer errors). They're also VERY inexpensive these days. Here are some examples of CF card readers from Amazon:

Also, if the card has somehow become corrupted, take no more pics until you've recovered the photos. Take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:

You will also need to use a card reader with this software. Finally AFTER you've recovered your photos, recommend formatting the card IN YOUR CAMERA to prevent this from happening again. Note that formatting will totally erase your card. Turn on the camera, press the menu button, select the tools menu. Go down to the selection that states your CF card's memory capacity and select it. Then follow the formatting prompts.

How do i down load pic on computer


Almost any computer store (even drugstores these days!) sell inexpensive memory card readers that have a connector that you plug into a USB port on your computer. Most have slots to read several different types and sizes of cards. Just be sure that the reader you buy takes CompactFlash (CF) cards that the Nikon 5700 uses. Your computer treats the card and reader as one more disk drive.
