Canon sd card can,t read


Remove the card and clean the contacts then re-insert checking first that you have not accidently locked the card. If that doesn't work try re-formatting.

I accidently click thr format option and delted all my photos is there a way to recover the deleted photos


No, you have great chance, no matter you photos in Canon camera got deleted, formatted by accident or became inaccessible due to camera memory card errors. Chances of recovery is possible as long as you take the right action.

Take a try of this Canon Undelete Software, Not only general photo formats, but Canon RAW photo formats (.cr2 or .crw) can be retrieved easily.

Note: before the photos are recovered, Never should you attempt to take more photos or save more data to the memory card in case chances of photo recovery might be reduced. Hope it helps. Regards.

All my photos from yesterday were deleted, and I have no idea how. No one touched it. I was fiddling with the settings last night. Could I have accidently set it to auto-delete or something?


Hi,

I think you accidently selected FORMAT option from settings, Formatting the memory card erase all the data including protected images and other file types. So, once you formatted the memory card there is no way to restore them.

Thanks...!!

My canon sd600 says Memory card error?? any


I'm afraid that's exactly what it could be. A bad card which can't be formatted. Occasionally digital warnings can get it right, Occasionally.

Memory cards don't last forever and depending on it's use and treatment they can die sometimes somewhat prematurely. Just removing the card whilst it''s being accessed by the camera can ruin a card for good. Just check that the record inhibit tab isn't in place on the card. It's a little tab which when closed will stop the pictures stored on it from being accidently erased. Although usually the camera will say protect and not error.

I'd be inclined to try formatting the card in another camera if you can borrow one for a few minutes. Whatever you do, don't try formatting it in your computer. Or borrow a known good card and try it. If it works it would appear your card is dead.

Hi, i accidently opened the battery door cover with the camera still on and now it says "memory card error" and won't take any more pix. how do i fix the problem? thanks


Hello. Turn the camera on and go to the menu. Find reset and reset your camera. This will take you back to the original factory settings. Next you may have to format your memory card. once again go to your menu and find format. Formatting will erase what you have on that card, so if you do not want to lose those pix save them to your computer first. Joe

FORMATTING


Hvae you tried taking the card out then looking on the camera for any stored images.

A lot of cameras will automatically use the storage card when it is inserted instead of the camera memory.

You maybe out of luck and lost all your pictures.

Accidently formatted memory card-seem to have lost pictures that were on it


Hello Dear,
There is no internal memory present in any of the Canon Cameras but you can take your Card to a data recovery expert and your photos can be retrieved 100%.
You are suggested not to use this card any more, as if over written there will be NO chances for Data Recovery.

Format restoration


Hey seasea911,
I've read nothing but good things about Art Plus Digital Recovery software, but if it's not working I would keep trying different software until I find one that works. I would make sure your SD card is not set to the locked position before trying to recover your images.

Sincerely,
Allan
