There are file recovery programs available on the Internet. No guarantees that all files can be recovered, but I have talked with people who have had pretty good success. Prices range from free to $30 or so. If these are important images, it would be worthwhile investing in an application that will give you the best chance of recovery. I haven't had any personal experience, but you can browse what's available. Type "image file recovery" in your search engine.

If your photos are stored on the memory card, then removethe memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader.Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of yourworking computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device oran external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card andcopy the photos to your computer.Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive.

I think you would be better off using a card reader and downloading to a folder that you create on your desktop. That way, you know exactly where they are.

SLR's don't have hard drives. Buy an inexpensive card reader to download your pictures to a folder you create on your desktop. See if that works.

I have meet a lot of people asking similar question. The answer is absolutely Yes. You can always recover the lost photos from your digital camera even you have formatted the device. Formatting won't make the data in your memory card erased permanently. The pictures you formatted are still in the disk of your memory card, just not accessible right now.

The best way to recover them back is trying some photo recovery programs. A nice one is Asoftech Photo Recovery that helped me before.

This program can deep scan to find your lost photos first and then perform recovery with nice quality. But before your photos are recovered, please don't take more photos in case your lost photo data are overwritten.

Missing photos


The camera has no internal memory.

If you hit the format button, you will lose images without warning. I am not sure if this is what you did, but if you really need the images, stop using the card for the moment and try some data recovery software:

www.z-a-recovery.com it's free and effective.

Hope this helps!

Well, 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 software to recover Canon photos, 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.

CF card problem


Try a CF card reader. If that shows no files then try some file recovery software with the card reader acting like a drive. There are some nice freeware programs that might help. It may be that the files are corrupted then the solution is more difficult. Good Luck!
