If the pictures are on a memory card AND you haven't done anything with the card since formatting it, there's a possibility of recovering some pictures. Do a google search for "format recovery software" and pick a program appropriate for your computer and operating system. Install the program, put the card into a card reader, and try it.

SOURCE: Hit format by mistake All pictures (100) were lost

If you had just hit "delete all", there is recovery software you could have used. Hitting "format" doesn't give you that option.

Installed 16gb sd memory stick. took 1682 pics and the first 1000 "disappeared".How do I retrieve them?


Did you format the card in your camera before you started taking pictures? If not, that's why this happend as the file structure was not setup. But no sweat. First you'll need to recover your lost photos, and also save/backup all of your photos onto your computer. You'll likely need to use recovery software. Here's some very good freeware. Now AFTER you've saved all your photos onto your computer, format the card in your camera to rejuvenate it, and properly setup the file/folder structure to prevent this from happening again. Note that this will erase the card, so only do this after you've saved/recovered all the photos onto your computer.

Screen is black and memory card should not be full,


Hi,

the error could be due to several things - the card reader, pins bent, card getting hot or near magnetic source...
go ahead and re-format your card, even though u might risk never being able to retrieve your photos.This is better cuz if u send it for repair they will charge between $100-$150.
But I found a free recovery software called Zero Assumption Digital Recovery (http://www.z-a-recovery.com) which will able you to recover photos.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate me as fixya..

I seem to have lost photo and videos from my memory card how can i retrive them i have pluged it into my laptop and lost all pictures and videos vivitar vivicam 8324


Does your laptop happen to be a Mac? But no matter. You can still use your laptop to recover your photos with recovery software. Here's several freeware for PC's, but it also includes a link to one freeware for Macs just in case my guess was right. Seem to see this particular problem occurring frequently (corrupted card after plugging into computer), but primarily occurring with Macs, and also gaming systems such as Wii.
Now to get the card working again, after recovering your photos, you'll need to format the card in your camera using the cameras format feature. If the camera does not recognize the card, you'll need to format it first in a PC to FAT32, then reformat again in your camera.

Can't find pictures on SC card


Try transferring the pictures to your computer then erasing the copies on the sd card, then putting the pics back on the sd card from the computer and then of course back to the camera.

My memory card is full but my camera reads "no images."


Don't fret, your images are probably still there. But 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

And finally, after (and only after) you recover your images, format your card. This should refreshen your card to be usable again. Format it in the camera, using a "Full" or "Low Level" format, and NOT a "Quick" format. Keep in mind that the photos will no longer be recoverable after doing the Full or Low Level format.

Memory card formatted in error


Once the memory card is formatted, the files saved or pictures will be deleted and there is no way to retrieve the images.

I would advise that you transfer the pictures first to your PC before formatting the memory card.
