Jessops Memory Card Erased

My friend accidentally erased all files (folders on it when you open in on my mac) on my jessops memory card. When I inserted it back into the camera it would take a picture then close the lense and all the buttons would become inactive. I think it is missing a DCIM folder, Frame folder and a folder that contained some file which I think told the memory card what to do. How can I restore this?

Format the card in the camera to restore the folders and prepare it for use in the camera.

I sure hope you're not actually doing this on a Pentax film camera...

I want to format my transcend from mac how can i do it


Transcend produces different kinds of memory modules, including Random Access Memory, or RAM, chips for computer systems, USB flash drives and a variety of flash memory card formats, such as SD.


Transcend's flash memory devices are usually preformatted with either FAT32 or NTFS. Macintosh systems primarily use the HFS+ file system format.


You can format a Transcend flash memory card to the FAT format using the Disk Utility program on a Macintosh.


Insert the Transcend flash card into a card reader connected to the Mac.

Some Macintosh computers have SD card readers built in.


Open the Disk Utility program in the Utilities folder.


Click the flash card in the left column of the window.


Click the "Erase" tab.


Click "MS-DOS (FAT)" in the "Format" drop-down list.


Enter a name for the flash card in the "Name" box.


Click "Erase" to format the flash memory card to FAT.


Hope this helps

Undelete erased pix from sony cybershot 10.1 mega pixels

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

I need to recover accidently erased image files from my sd card for my Canon S2-IS camera


First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download this photo recovery software

Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

Pictures from my digital camera have been erased can they be retr


Yes, and no. If you have NOT re-formatted the memory card (you DO have a removable memory card in it, don't you?) then, yes, the pics are recoverable. If you DID re-format the card, or have taken pictures since, on the same card, then no. Google search for "free photo recovery programs" on the web. Read about them, including customer reviews, and pick one that you would be comfortable using. I use one called "Photo Recovery Pro" but I don't remember if it was free or not. After installing the recovery program in your computer, put the memory card into a card reader and insert into a USB port. Windows XP & Vista will recognize the reader and the card as a new drive and assign it a temporary drive letter. Open the recovery program and enter the place (the drive letter and/or folder) of the pictures you want to recover and click enter or start to begin the recovery process. Create a new folder on your computer to save the new files (pics) to so that you may save them OFF the card and won't loose them again. When digital pictures are taken, tiny files called EXIF data are created for each picture. This EXIF data is embedded into each picture as well as remains on the memory card until you overwrite the space on the card where the original picture was, just like on your hard drive in your computer. This tiny EXIF file contains ALL the information that was that picture, unbelievable as it may sound, and an identical picture, pixel for pixel, can be created from it, that is how the recovery program works. If you have NO memory card in the camera, or it is all INTERNAL memory only, simply connect the cable that came with your camera to a USB port and the same process should work that way. Sorry to be so lengthy but I felt you needed to understand how the process works. Get into the habit of saving your pictures to your computer on a regular basis. This will leave memory open for important events to photograph in a hurry and you won't be so prone to accidentally erase your precious memories. Besides, you can never tell when a flying saucer will land right next to you and you WOULD want proof of that, wouldn't you?

2. Format memory card

(WARNING: After running this low level format tool,
the whole USB flash disk surface will be fully erased.

MEMORY CARD


Hi there.

This may be easier than you think.<grin>
SD cards can become accidentally locked. Double check your card. Take a look at the side of it. There will be a little switch. Make sure the switch is in the unlocked postion and see if that's your problem. Let me know if that doesn't help.

Pictures come out blurry and now all images were erased


Yes, just try photo recovery software to rescue the erased photos, here are some you may rely on. Both programs can also recover videos and music.

Photo Recovery Software (for Windows)
Mac Photo Recovery Software (for Mac OS X)

Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the memory card of your camera in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.
