Question about Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

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:

Lg optimus logic low system memory


Only some apps can be moved to the card. Here's how to check and move the ones that can along with some other tips for freeing up space in internal storage:

1.Go to the Home screen. Press Menu and tap Settings , then Applications, then All

2. Tap each app and tap "Clear Cache". Tap "Move to SD Card" if it's not grayed out.

3. If there are any apps that you've downloaded and don't use uninstall them. The phone won't let you uninstall system apps that are essential to the phone's operation. If you aren't sure if you need an app or not install ES File Manager (which can be moved to the card) and use it to back up the app to the memory card before deleting.

4. Open Messaging, if you have any picture messages, tap on the bubble containing the picture. Tap Save attachment. After the picture has been saved, tap on the bubble again and tap Delete message. Also delete any text messages you don't need.

5. If you use Gmail, open Gmail, tap Menu, then tap Go to labels, then Trash and delete everything in Trash. If you use a different email app delete everything in its trash folder.

6. Launch the Camera, press the Menu button, tap settings and make sure that "Storage Location" is set to "SD Card".

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.

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.

I need to delete currupted data on my ps2 memory card


Plug in the PS2 memory card and dont put in a disk,and hit the power button once,like you would to start the machine.Then a screen with flying orbs(or cubes I cannot remember)should show up in the backround.Then hit the X button to enter the next menu.It should show your memory card,or two if you have two in.Select the memory card and hit X.After that it will dive into the files.Go to the memory that is corrupt and hit X,then find the delete function and hit X again.The memorys icon should fly in circles and get smaller,like its getting flushed down a invisible toilet.If you do not know the corrupted data,you may have to go through and delete memory untill you find the corrupted file.Also corrupted data can interfere with gameplay and make it impossilbe to load some games.I hope it helped.

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.
