Images missing from memory card

I shot approximately 40 pictures and viewed them in the camera. When I tried to download them, they were gone!  Nor could I find them in the camera when I tried to see/find them there.

    The response gave me a link which I thought would take me to data recovery soft ware download. Instead of that, I got stuff about Vista which I want nothing to do with. I'm on a Mac. If you mean by using a computer to check that the picture really isn't there - attempting to download the pictures, Yes I did that.

    The Nikon apparently has no separate internal memory. The 2 gig memory card has 200 fine images from earlier in the week. It is only the approximately 50 images from today that are missing. The 2 gig card should hold about 350 fine images. The nearly new battery was freshly charged. The camera behaved perfectly normally. I viewed the images after I took them, so I know they were in there at one point.

  • Marge Rudman Jun 21, 2008

    File Scavenger doesn't seem to be compatible with Mac. I tried downloading it to a memory writer - no luck there either

  • Marge Rudman Jun 21, 2008

    The pictures were jpg, not RAW. I removed the memory card from the camera inserted it in the card reader then into the USB port. With that, iPhoto opened, as always and began its downloading process. As always, i selected "do not import duplicates" of which there were plenty. This is the same procedure I've used successfully all along. I have the OSX.5 operating system It does download RAW, as NEF. But, that wasn't an issue here.

  • Marge Rudman Jun 21, 2008

    Thanks for all of the suggestion. I'm reluctant to purchase $145 software on line without knowing whether it will work. I may wander into the Apple store, purchase the software and attempt the retrieval there with the help of a "Genius". The photos in question don't justify the expense. But, getting to the bottom of this and having the hardware for future fiascos could.
    So, in the meantime, I've marked and retired the memory chip in question and may never use it again.
    Thanks again,
    when the response to this come, I'll probably decide to end the exchange, declare myself "satisfied" even though it's not solved and pay up.
    Marge

  • Marge Rudman Jun 21, 2008

    File juicer downloaded successfully. But, it "found" only the images which had never been lost. I reinserted the memory card into the camera and deleted those visible images one by one. I DID NOT format the memory card. Then I ran the memory card through filejuicer again. It found no images to recover.
    The plot thickens.

  • Marge Rudman Jun 21, 2008

    That makes sense and is worth checking out. However, IF the blankity-blank thing is that damaged, I don't think I want to use it at all.

  • Marge Rudman Jun 21, 2008

    o.k. we've come full circle, I think. I will keep the corrupted card in case I decide to invest in the $145 recovery software sometime. Hopefully I won't have occassion for it. In any event, I've learned some stuff and know better than to trust the card ever again. In the old days, rolls of film got damaged or lost in processing. Now, memory cards corrupt.
    It's just not a perfect world.
    thanks,
    Marge

  • Marge Rudman Jun 22, 2008

    NOTHING HAS WORKED.
    TOO BAD.
    MARGE

  • Marge Rudman Jun 22, 2008

    apparently not for Macs.

  • Marge Rudman Jun 22, 2008

    with a different memory card, the camera is functioning perfectly.
    I download to my Mac via a memory writer having been taught it's best to avoid directly connecting your camera to a computer.

  • Marge Rudman Jun 22, 2008

    How do I reach dilipbagdi to let him know?
    Does CardRecovery work with a Mac?
    How much does it cost?

  • Marge Rudman Jun 22, 2008

    I'm on a Mac
    didn't find anything compatible
    I quit.
    Problem NOT solved.
    Marge

  • Marge Rudman Jun 22, 2008

    In the context of all of the previous communication, this comment doesn't make sense to me.
    Marge

  • Marge Rudman Jun 22, 2008

    Looks like there's no solution this time.
    Thanks, guys (and gals?)

  • Marge Rudman Jun 22, 2008

    I regularly format my memory cards. True it hadn't been formatted before the last shoot as I had other pics on there. This has been a first time problem.
    That card is not to be trusted and is permanently retired

  • Marge Rudman Jun 22, 2008

    Nothing suggested had led to recovery of the missing images. Perhaps there is no solution this time. Perhaps some expensive software from Apple (for my Mac) would do the trick. I've learned a few things and you all have spent a lot of time with this problem. I've kept some of the suggested links for future reference. Even though the problem was not solved, I'll pay up because it doesn't feel right otherwise.
    Thanks anyway,
    Marge

  • Marge Rudman Jun 22, 2008

    no it's not solved. Tomorrow I will go the the camera store that sold me the Nikon and see if they have retrieval software there that can help me. I think we have gone as far as we can this time around. thank you and I have already indicated that I will pay for this even though we haven't truly solved it, I've learned some stuff.

The D40X has internal memory.
Remove the card and start the camera with no card, go to picture viewer and check if you can view the pictures.

3. if it shows all free space we cant do noting about it.

Try deleting all pics on the card after taking a backup first. Now try to click as many pics as possible and see if you can get up to the 350 range. If you still get stuck at the 200 pic range, then it could be one of two things:
1. Either the memory card is faulty and doesnt actually hold 2gigs, or
2. The file size of the pics are large and actually using up the 2gigs!

You may have possibly partially transferred images to the computer - are they anywhere to be found?
You may have whilst taking images altered the resolution setting thus reducing the capacity of the card.
Download this and run the memory card through it it will pull up any missing images.

www.pcinspector.com
or
www.konvar.com
downd load the program, install it and direct it to the plugged in camera in the download mode.
Also get hold of a card reader, saves on batteries and this sort of problem

hint: it's always best to reformat cards IN the camera). Check your software preferences. And it very well could be your memory card is wonky. Have you tried other cards and had the same problem?

there is a software with authorized service centre that helps you get your lost images back,but they charge you for that.and also give you the software so if you get this problem again you can yourself solve it again.

Hi,

It is possible that the memory card has a bad sector in there, and therefore cannot store the data in that spot.

After doing what you can to recover the good photo's, delete the ones you are sure you have copies of, and the missing ones may appear, or more likely, not.

To test this theory, take the similar quantity of photo's again, and see if the problem repeats.

If it does, you know you have a lower limit on this memory card, or would be better to purchase a new card.

I had a recent problem with my camera doing the same. I had about 100 pics on the 1g memory card, took 20 or 30 more, viewed them, turned the camera off, then when I went to download them they didn't show up. Turned out to be that the memory card failed. It will now hold about 70 pics, then nothing. I bought a new card and it works fine. To see if this is the problem, take off about 50 pics and then just start shooting, see if will take you up to around 200 (the amount you said were there) then see if it will hold any more.

    Memory cards are still way above rolls of film. Think of how many rolls you lost or damaged, because that number will be at least 10 times that of how many memory cards you have to replace in you lifetime.

  • Ryan Rogers
    Ryan Rogers Jun 22, 2008

    I forgot to mention that, when this happened to me, I could not recover the mising images, the bad sector in the memory card made them unrecoerable. I'm not using Mac, but the recovery software I used got close, but not enough to keep the pics. I'm glad your camera is woking properly, but I'm sorry that you're going to lose your pics.

Hi,

Two possible ways to check/recover:
1. Try Macintosh Data Recovery Software;
2. Use a memory card reader attached to a Windows PC and try all the suggested file recovery utilities.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi-

When you took the pictures what are the formats of the pics? are they RAW? Have you tried using an adapter on or card reader to manually transfer the photo to your mac? or did you hook camera directly to your mac? are you using a special application or program when your transferring the photos to your mac? pls keep me posted so that we can solve this. Thanks!!

Hello

you can attempt to scan the memory card for recoverable images with http://www.quetek.com/prod02.htm File Scavenger, I use this tool in recovering pictures from corrupt memory cards, try the trial it should be able to find your pictures if recoverable or on the card at all.

the trial doesn't allow you to restore anything.

Hello margerudman,

Many cameras have a removable disk and an internal memory. Sometimes you have to select which type of memory you wish to download the pictures from. Please make sure that you check both the internal memory and the removable disk memory as well.
Also, please make sure your batteries are well charged and your memory card is not full. I hope this helps.
Good luck :)

    It sounds like you have tried about everything. You have lost 50 pictures that seemed pretty important to you. Obviously you do not want to pay for an expensive program to get them back. I know you have decided that the memory card is bad. May I suggest one more thing. Take some more pics on that memory card around the house. These will be unimportant pictures, similar to using up the last couple of photos in a roll of film. Then check to see if you can download those pictures onto your mac. If you can, then your card may not be the problem.. If you still cannot transfer the pics but another card does work, then you know it is the card that is faulty. I am sorry for your frustration. good luck :)

Seems it accidentally deleted or somewhat, by the way did you try checking the content of the camera using a computer to check if that picture is really not present on the camera's memory if its reallt not there, better try looking for a data recovery software on the internet that will help you recover any picture that was acccidentally deleted.

hope that helps.........

    You can really buy a data recovery software that will work with MAC but I believe some digital photot store offers a service to recover the missing data if you can check if there's any shop near you I think that will be much cheaper than buying the expensive data recovery software and there's no assurance that it will recover your missing data...

Image database error


The manual on page 126 says:
Image Database File error Cannot recover Import all of the images to the computer with "PMB", and format the memory card or the internal memory (page 97). To view the images again with the camera, export the imported images to the camera with "PMB".

If you used the card before in the same camera, it should be compatible. If you can't save the pictures normally, us an external card reader, to save or recover and save the pictures first. Then do a format in the card reader (FAT or FAT32) and when you reinsert the card in the camera, again format the card, this time in the camera. (You always should format in the camera, the first time you use a memory card in a camera, or after you had a failure tithe the memory card.

If I were in your situation, I would stop trying to download to my computer. I would take the card to my nearest Walmart store and use one of their picture kiosk machines to either print all of the pics or even make a CD copy of them.

I lost user manual of my Sony Cybershot DSC-W150


I think you have set the "image storage" to internal. If you take a picture the memory reading should go down one shot-if it doesnt it is because your photos are on the internal memory instead of on auto or memory card. If you take out the card then try to view the pictures hopefully you will now see them. Eventually if this is the problem you will get a notice telling you that "internal memory is now full£.

Data loss when trying to copy images to computer


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Try this link to download updated software. click on download drivers, choose your camera, choose your OS.

Lost Images


You may have possibly partially transferred images to the computer - are they anywhere to be found? You may have whilst taking images altered the resolution setting thus reducing the capacity of the card. Download this and run the memory card through it it will pull up any missing images. www.pcinspector.com or www.konvar.com downd load the program, install it and direct it to the plugged in camera in the download mode. Also get hold of a card reader, saves on batteries and this sort of problem
