Question about Canon PowerShot SD630 Digital ELPH / IXUS 65 Digital Camera
Hello. I am in a desperate situation here. I just came back from my trip to Thailand and I took some real precious family pictures with my canon sd630. After I took the pictures, I took out the battery to recharge it. And when I put it back in, the images were gone! I didn't erase a thing! I promise! BUT the weird thing is that when I try to play my images back, my camera will say that there are "no images." Yet when I try to take pictures, it says that my memory card is FULL, which seems to mean that the pictures are still inside somewhere. I REALLY don't want to reformat my memory disk because I don't want to lose my pictures! Please please help me get back my pictures.
I had the same problem but I took another picture. Have I lost my original pics forever?

Don't fret, your images are probably still there. But 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 need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're cheap:
And finally, after (and only after) you recover your images, format your card. This should refreshen your card to be usable again. Format it in the camera, using a "Full" or "Low Level" format, and NOT a "Quick" format. Keep in mind that the photos will no longer be recoverable after doing the Full or Low Level format.
