Did you copy them to your computer? In some cases, the computer will default to "moving" the pictures instead of copying. "Move" deletes the original after making the copy.

Your camera won't be able to undelete pictures, but there are programs for doing this on a computer. You can put the memory card into a card reader attached to a computer, and use an undelete program to recover the deleted files. Undelete programs are available for free download from the internet, try at www.download.com.

I was looking at my pictures last night and today when I try to upload them all my pictyures from this weekend were gone and but my old pictures are still there what happened


Try using a card reader to see if the images are still in the card. It could just be that for one reason or another the camera is not reading the new images but they are still in there. Once you have backed up the images to your computer put the card back in the camera and format it. This will erase the entire card and clean up any errors it might have. After this the card shouldn't be giving you any issues. If none of this works then I recommend contacting a Samsung authorized service center for assistance. Hope this helps!

I hope you didn't format the card because that erases the pics forever. You could get a separate card reader and try to download them that way. You could take the card to a store like Walmart and plug the card into one of their picture making machines. When your pics show up, you can print them or even make a cd of them.

All my photos from yesterday were deleted, and I have no idea how. No one touched it. I was fiddling with the settings last night. Could I have accidently set it to auto-delete or something?


Hi,

I think you accidently selected FORMAT option from settings, Formatting the memory card erase all the data including protected images and other file types. So, once you formatted the memory card there is no way to restore them.

Thanks...!!

I have GE C1130 and it has a tendency of losing pictures . When you go on the viewing part it shows empty. Also shows empty when you hook it to a computer. I haven't deleted anything. Last time the pics...


This is a formatting problem (in other words, it's likely you did not format the card in your camera when you first got it). First thing to do is back up all photos from the card onto your computer. Afterwards, format the card IN THE CAMERA using the camera's format feature. This will correct the problem from reoccurring in the future, but will also erase the card! So again, only do this after backing up your photos.

I have a memory card error appearing on my camera. My camera is ok just the memory card as i have tried using another card in my camera. It happened last night after taking photos when my battery was low....


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the switch on the side of the card, or the switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

Memory card erased


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:

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/recovering-those-accidentally-lost.html

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

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_st?keywords=card+reader&rs=172282&page=1&rh=n%3A172282%2Ck%3Acard+reader&sort=price

The reason this occurred is that you likely never formatted the card. The card will work fine in the beginning but eventually will corrupt. AFTER you've recovered the photos, format the card IN YOUR CAMERA to prevent this from happening again (dig out that instruction manual to figure out how). Keep in mind formatting will also totally erase your card, so again only do this after you've recovered the photos.

Formatting on Canon IXUS75


Formatting erases all information on the memory card, preparing it for further use.

If you haven't done anything else to the card since formatting, you may be able to recover at least some of the photos. Do a Google search for "data recovery software" and select a program for your computer and operating system. Put the card into a card reader attached to your computer and run the program.

Photos on camera review but not memory card


before unplugging any usb device from the computer... it is best to safely remove before unplugging the device...

i used to just unplug before i lost over 200 pics. was able to recover using recovery software but the whole process took about 3 hours to do. since using safe remove.. not a single loss

some pros suggest formatting the card on regular basis to also clean the card of file fragments... but once card is formatted, the pics are not recoverable... be careful

Pictures gone!


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.
