Question about Canon PowerShot S400 / IXUS 400 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Pictures gone! I have aPowershot S400 camera. We took about 50 pictures on a LEXAR 12X 256MB flashcard. We are able to see and download the last 16 pictures we took(about 8MB). The others are nowhere to be found. Howerver, the memory card indicates that half the card is full. Is there anyway to retrieve the missing pictures???

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. Recommend the last program listed on this page:

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're cheap:

After you've recovered the photos and backed them up on your computer, recommend formatting the card in your camera (note that this will erase all photos on your card). Look for the "Low Level" format option in your camera's menus. A low level format should help prevent this from happening again.

My sony cyber shot camera suddenly is saying that my Lexar 4GB CompactFlash Premium Series 80x needs to be formatted. What about my pictures?


You might have locked memory card. If not first try to connect memory card to PC with memory card reader and try to copy your stuff... then after you take all stuff try to format it.

If card indicates "Format Card" will I lose the pictures I took?


Memory cards are not made to hold pictures permanently. Like any stored data, they can be glitched and then you've lost the data. You should always copy them to the computer hard drive AND make a backup or 2. Even CDs can go bad. All my pictures are stored at least 2 but sometimes 3 places. Perhaps there is a way to retrieve the data, but I do not know how. Contact the manufacturer and see it they can help... but I'm afraid you've lost them.

I took a picture wihtout a CF card in the camera


When you take pictures without the internal card , they get stored inside the camera internal memory (usually 8 or 16 MB only).

Connect the camera to a computer using a data cable, without putting any memory card inside the camera. The camera internal memory will be displayed as a new external usb disk on computer.

Sounds like your LCD might have gone bad. The LCD might cost more than the camera costs, but there are a few places on eBay that you can buy a repair and replacement service from for pretty cheap.
