Question about Samsung S850 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Formatting I didn't know what formatting meant, so I turned it on, and it deleted all of my pictures. I had over one hundred pictures of my family and I. They were amazing Christmas pictures, and I am deeply saddened about what happened. I was wondering if there is any way to get the pictures back. I haven't taken any pictures so that I don't overwrite them. My dad told me there is software he has that I can use that restores files that you accidently deleted. But he has never tried it on a digital camera, and I'm not so sure it will work. It has only worked on a CD for him. They were once in a lifetime pictures, and now they are gone because of my stupidity. :[ I only hope there is a way to get them back. Hie yes I thought I was deleting a slide show but i deleted some special photos from this camera. is there any way to get the photos back.

    I ALSO HAD SOME WELL CHERISHED PICTURES OF MY 1ST VACATION TO MEXICO THAT WERE ERASED BECAUSE I THOUGHT FORMATTING WAS SOMETHING TOTALLY DIFFERENT FROM DELETION . I PRESSED YES FOR FORMAT AND THEY WERE ALL ERASED! IM PISSED AND I NEED TO KNOW WHAT SHOULD I DO TO GET THEM BACK BECAUSE THEY CANT BE GONE THATS NOT THE DFINITION OF FORMAT AT LEAST I DID'NT THINK SO.

All data will be deleted. format?


Don't format the card just yet if you want to keep your photos.

The memory card should be formatted each time you finish downloading your pictures to your computer. This wipes the card clean and prepares it for further use.

If you want to keep some of your photos on the card then you'll have to delete those you don't want to keep. I would not recommend doing this too much, however, as this is all but guaranteed to eventually cause problems that formatting will avoid.

Will all the photos be deleted after formatting?If yes, how to remove 'write protect"from the camera?


Formatting will delete all photos on whatever is formatted.

You didn't specify the make and model of your camera, so I'm assuming it uses SD cards. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

I have a vivacam 5385 and would like to know if I can delete my pictures on the card in one go or do I have to delete them individually? thanks Brian


Formatting the card will delete EVERYTHING on the card. I suggest formatting the card each time you download your pics (and make sure they're all on the computer).

Cannot find instructions in manual for Nikon Coolpix S210 on how to delete ALL photos from memory disk. It will let me delete one at a time but I want to wipe the memory card clean. Thanks for any and all...


These instructions are from the Instruction Manual of the Coolpix S 210 and need to be carried out within the Set-Up Menu.

Refer Page 19:

Removing Memory Cards
Before removing memory cards, turn the camera off
and confirm that the power-on lamp is off. Open the
battery-chamber/memory card slot cover and press the
card in 1 to partially eject the card 2. The card can
then be removed by hand.
B Formatting Memory Cards
If the message at right is displayed, the memory card must be
formatted before use (A110). Note that formatting permanently
deletes all pictures and other data on the memory card. Be sure
to make copies of any pictures you wish to keep before formatting
the memory card.
Use the multi selector to choose Yes and press k. The
confirmation dialog will be displayed. To start formatting, choose
Format and press k.
Do not turn the camera off or open the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover until
formatting is complete.
• The first time you insert the memory cards used in other devices into the COOLPIX S210, be sure to
format them using this camera (A110).


Refer Pg 110:

 Format Memory/m Format Card
Use this option to format the internal memory or a memory card.
Formatting the Internal Memory
To format the internal memory, remove the memory
card from the camera.
The Format memory option appears in the setup
menu.
Formatting a Memory Card
When the memory card is inserted in the camera, the
Format card option appears in the setup menu.

Hope this helps

How did my pictures get deleted by formatting the card?


when you format something it deletes everything leaving it how it came from the factory, it's possible that you had corrupted files and the camera advised to format, next time cancel

When a solid state disk as a memory card is formatted using the camera menu option, or perforing a Fast Formatting with a computer, the File system on media is deleted and overwritten.

If a complete format is done using a computer, the clusters containing data are erased before formatting. In that case there is no way to recover the data files.

Often there is no way to recover data from a formatted Disk or Memory card.

Try following the instructions on website below:

Formatting


Hi Nicole, If you haven?t messed with or tried to save new pictures on the camera since you deleted the Xmas ones then there may be hope. If you take the card to a camera shop that deals with digital cameras they can probably help you. There is a good case for doing the job yourself (and saving money); however, if the pictures are worth a lot to you it may be better to pay an expert to deal with it assuming you can find someone who knows what they are doing. If you?re feeling adventuresome here is one software program that allows you to do a test before buying. http://www.diskinternals.com/products/deleted-data-recovery/ It will show you what it can recover but if you want to get the images you have to pay $40 to activate the software. I?ve used this before and it worked for me but be aware there are lots of other programs, some free. Here are a couple of free ones that I have never personally used but are rated fairly well: http://www.z-a-recovery.com/digital-image-recovery.htm http://www.pcinspector.de/file_recovery/uk/welcome.htm Let us know how it goes and don?t forget to rate the posting.

"Memory card requires formatting"


This error message means that the card is corrupted or formatted for another digital camera. Turn off the camera. Insert a new card or format the card. CAUTION: Formatting deletes all pictures and videos, including those that are protected. Removing a card during formatting may damage the card.
