Don't fret, it's likely the pictures are still there. Just 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:

Can't initialize SanDisk Ultra II for S7000


try formatting it in the computer, then initializing it in the camera.
It's possible that the camera can only handle memory up to 1Gb. Try a 1g CF card.

Can't initialize SanDisk Ultra II for S7000


It looks as though the camera cannot support memory as high as 4GB. Capacities above 2.2 GB require that your camera supports "FAT32", and S7000 does not support FAT32.

Can't retrieve some photos from Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ11.


First, if you want those photos, dont do anything else to the card yet. Use a utilty like RECUVA (you'll find it at http://www.filehippo.com/download_recuva/) it is good at retrieving images from cards in these situations. and better yet its free.

When you are satisfied that all is lost or found...you'll again need to format the card with the camera not the computer. I would also check with the cameras manufacturer website. look for a Firmware update. if one is posted get that and apply it. Some Flash memery cards have advanded features that cameras need updating to handle.

Finally if this keep happending try a new memory card, flash can have defects.
Good luck!

Error 50


The "E50" error code indicates formatting a SD card has failed. Solution To clear the "E50" error, try performing the following procedure. 1. Try using another SD card. If you have another SD card, try loading it in the camera. If the error code is not displayed when the other SD card is loaded, there may be something wrong with the first one rather than with the camera. 2. Use your computer's ScanDisk utility to check the SD card for errors. Use ScanDisk to check the SD card for card error or card failure. Refer to the instruction manual for your operating system or Windows Help for further instructions. (If you are using a Macintosh, use the "Disk First Aid" program to check for card error or card failure. Refer to the instruction manual for your Macintosh OS for further information.) Be sure to back up the data on the SD card on the computer before you check the SD card. If a card error or card failure occurs when you use your computer's ScanDisk, there is something wrong with the SD card. Follow ScanDisk's on-screen instructions to solve the problem.
