Cannot access photos on Canon Powershot SD400 Camera
I shot a whole vacation and when I got home, only the last 2 photos were viewable in playback mode. I was just about to give up, but when I went to reformat the card, I noticed that it says there is 316MB used of the 1.8 on the 2G SD card. I cancelled the format, but can't access the photos. So, it appears, the photos are still on there, just hidden somehow. I tried using a different camera as a reader. At the time I was taking the last two photos, the camera battery was dying and I turned it on real quick to get the last two. Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.

Unfortunately, no. Time-lapse video works by taking fewer frames and then displaying them at normal speed so as to give the impression of time going by faster than in reality. Thus, the camera simply hasn't recorded all the information it would have in normal mode, and there's no way to recreate that information. Think of reading just the first line of every page of a book: you'd get through it quickly, but you'd also miss some things.
Now, if you'd shot in slow-motion, then you could throw out some frames until you got to normal speed.
Press the timer button until the clock symbol is displayed. Point the camera at your subject and take a shot as you normaly would. As soon as the second switch on the shutter button is pressed, the 10 second countdown will begin. A yellow lamp will flash every half a second until the last second where it will remain lit and then take the picture.
You mean SD400 camera doesn't show any error sign and it just doesn't have live view to shoot picture? If yes, its problem of bad CCD imager and Canon will provide free of cost repair facility for SD400 camera. Click Canon CCD Advisory for details.
In both the situations the problem is with the apperture control mechanism of the camera. 1). sometimes the flexible ribbion cable carrying signal to the lense assembly get worn out, replacing the same will resolve the problem. 2) in some cases the leaf blades of the apperture gets sticky, cleaning of the same solves the problem. 3). If you happen to drop the camera then the alignment of the motor moving the blades get disturbed.
In all the cases only a good repair man can fix the problem .
