Question about Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera

Deleting All Pictures

I have somehow deleted all of my pictures twice. I have no idea how I did this. Can you help? My camera is a Canon Powershot S5IS, but isn't on this list of cameras to choose.

    All photos on memory card were deleted without any attempt to delete. This has happened twice, about 500 photos the first and about 100 the second time. I don't know if I am able to retrieve them or not.

    the batteries died and when I put new ones in the old pictures were gone. Have had the camera for 1 yr and hasn't happened before.

Hello

My apologies if this message finds you long after posting this problem , but I am currently working through a backlog of problems that never got answered and hopefully this info can still be of use if not now possibly in future.

Please download Disc Digger HERE. This is a free tool you can use that works very well and there is no installation required, just run the program once you downloaded it.

Once you have connected the memory card to the computer via either the camera or preferably with a usb card reader , run the program.

On the program , select the dig deep option for accidentaly deleted files or dig deeper for a formatted card. Then select the card you want to do the recovery on and run the program.

The data will be displayed and you can recover it from there. This will only work if the card has not been used since the pictures were lost. Save the files to a location on the computer hard drive and not back to the memory card as this will overwrite the other pictures that still needs to be recovered.

Some of the properties of the files may become lost in the recovery but the pictures should be fine.

Feel free to ask if you need more assistance.

Kind Regards
Andrea

How do you erase all images on a Canon IXUS 1100 HS camera?


If all the pictures are on a memory card, format the memory card. If all the pictures are in the internal memory, remove the memory card (if installed) and format the internal memory.

Formatting wipes out all information from the memory card or internal memory and prepares it for further use. This is better than deleting individual pictures and will help prevent future troubles.

Delete select pictures from camera


While viewing the image, press the trashcan button. The camera will ask for confirmation of the delete.
I would recommend against making a habit of keeping some pictures on the camera or memory card and deleting others. You're guaranteed to fragment the memory, leading to camera speed loss and eventual memory corruption. The camera is an image capturing device, not an image storage device. If you need to keep some pictures on the camera, copy them to a computer, format the memory card, and then copy them back using a card reader.

Two things to try: 1. Go into the camera menu and find "reset" to get the camera back to factory default settings. 2. With the new card installed, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions. If the new card now works, you will probably need to do the same with the old card but download the pictures first using a card reader if necessary because formatting will completely erase it.

Canon does not have the manual for download. Canon will provide you a new manual for a reasonable price. Go to Canon.com (or .ca) for ordering info.
Deleting pictures all at once on a memory card camera is called 'Format'. Be aware that format removes even locked (protected) pictures. Be CERTAIN your pictures have all downloaded before you format. Unplug the camera from the computer to 'Format'. The Canon software has a preferences setting for 'Delete pictures from camera', I THINK...

Remove the SD card from the camera. Slide the tiny switch on the side of the card to its other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card in the camera. But if you've already tried this, see this link for additional things that you can try.
