My Canon Rebel XSi says it "cannot play back image". I can't upload the images onto my computer, either. Can I somehow recover them?

Insert your SD card into an external card reader and try uploading from it.
If this does not work, then try again using file recovery software (just enter "sd recovery" into your search engine) : there are many types, some may be a free download from your memory card manufacturer's website, others may only be on a limited use free trial basis and some are genuinely free. The best ones are the ones you pay for though. Your choice depends entirely upon how badly you need to recover the images, and the manufacturer's software should always be tried first unless you have a superior option already available.
After recovery you should discard and replace your memory card (major brands often have a 5 year or even lifetime replacement warranty) unless you are certain that the fault was due to your camera and not the card.
Good luck, and I hope that you recover your images. Please take a moment to rate my reply.

My Canon EOS rebel erased the pictures on my sd card


There is freeware programs that can recover your fotos if you haven't tried to place any more info on the SD card. Check on the internet, and try the programs...or, if you're worried that you might not be able to recover the images, take the SD card to a reputable camera shop, or computer store that repairs laptops, desktops, etc. Certainly, someone has a program to recover your fotos.

My canon xsi takes pictures and shows on the screen but when I go back to look at them it says it cannot play back images what can i do to correct this and are my pictures lost


Your memory card is either corrupt, improperly formatted (can be formatted by the camera in the menu) or you've purchased a fake "hacked" memory card online. Photos *may* be able to be recovered, but the odds are slim.

How can I download pictures that were already downloaded from my Canon EOS XSI? My husband used the wrong cord and all were distorted so I erased the pictures off the computer. I just need to download it...


On most DSLR cameras, you have the option to delete all photos after uploading them to your computer. Unfortunately, that is a default choice. Chances are that was selected and thus the photos were erased from your memory card. In the future, deselected that option and you will retain the images on your camera.

Display window is blank and not showing image being shot


Try pressing the display button when playing back an image. Also check the custom settings menu for your review tiume settings. Mine is set at 2 seconds. Perhaps there is an option not to review the image...though I need to check.
