Question about Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

Can changing settings delete the memory card?

I am an amatuer photographer and was changing some settings under the menu screen while flying home on the plane. Today I went to download my newest shots and nothing is there. Is there a way to re-convert back to my original settings or to somehow find these missing shots.

Sincerely,

totally bummed

It's no problem at all to get them back. Please see this post for several free software that you can download. You'll need to use a card reader with these programs though:

You can recover lost photos from memory card of your digital camera with this
1. Do not save any new photos into the memory card of your camera.
2. Insert the memory card into a card reader. Connect it with computer. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in My Computer.
3. Download recovery software, recommended one is Tenorshare Data Recovery (simply because i was using it and it worked)

4. Install and open the program, select your memory drive, and click 'Start' button to start scanning process which will find your lost photos.

How do i delete all pictures off my camera


  1. Press the play button--which features a picture of a solid triangle in the middle of a rectangle--on the backside of the camera.
  2. Press the "menu" button to access the playback menu.
  3. Rotate the multi-selector dial to scroll the menu cursor to the "delete" option represented by a trash can.
  4. Scroll to the option "erase all images" and press the "OK" button on the backside of the camera.
  5. Scroll to the "yes" option on the confirmation dialogue and press the "OK" button on the backside of the camera. If a removable SD memory card is inside the camera, the camera will delete all of the photos on the card. If there is no SD memory card, the camera will delete all photographs in the internal memory.

Hi there please follow the steps and let me know the result.
1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment.
2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.
3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.
5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine .

Deleting protected pictures


"Protecting Photographs from Deletion

In full-frame, zoom, and thumbnail playback, the button can be used to protect photographs

from accidental deletion. Protected files can not be deleted using the button or

the Delete option in the playback menu, and have DOS "read-only" status when viewed on

a Windows computer. Note that protected files will be deleted when the memory card is
formatted"

This is from the nikon website. You can down load the entire users manual here:

Cannot download all of pictures onto pc.


First of all, you should forget about using the internal memory...it just causes problems (as you can readily see). Always use a memory card. If any of the pics on your camera are important, you should download them to your computer before continuing. Then, go into the menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. Then, with the card out of the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions. Then insert a blank memory card and go into the menu and find "format" again...follow the on-screen instructions. From this point on, your life will be wonderful.

in your settings is it set to "shoot without card"? this could cause the camera to not use the memory card installed and rely on internal memory which is limited

Screen shows full memory card


It's quite possible that it's actually taking photos and storing them to the camera's onboard memory and not the memory card, explaining why it gets full so quickly with two pictures and why you can only delete two pictures. Look for a setting to change the storage to the memory card.
