Question about Kodak EasyShare C633 Digital Camera
My camera came with a 512MB SD IMPACT memory card. That card continues to work fine in my camera.
However, I have been using a 1 GB SD IMPACT memory card, which has worked fine until recently. I have taken many pictures on it and put them from the camera onto the computer without problems and have deleted many pictures from the camera. My 1GB card said on the camera that it would hold 900 and some pictures, but the day that it said it had over 200 pictures left on it, it quit working. I went to review my pictures for that day and found that the last 10 or 12 pictures I had taken were not on the card. Worse yet, my screen was red and said that the card has the wrong format and press okay to format the card. I did not press okay for fear I would lose my vacation pictures, right? I have taken it out and put it back in, but that didn't help.
How do I get the pictures off the memory card now that it says it has the wrong format without losing them? And why, after all this time, does it say it has the wrong format? If I just hook up the camera to the computer, will it let me print them off? I haven't tried that, because I really don't want to take the chance of losing the vacation pictures.
Thank you for your help.my memory card keeps saying it need to be formatted but if i do that i am gon loose my vacation pictutres
Sometimes flash memory can be exhausted, so to speak, and will stop functioning. This is all you can do to get your pictures back. After that try running a format and then the error check tools under the tools tab in the right click properties window.
Download a program called FreeUndelete from here and install it but before you open it, connect your MP3 player or insert your SD card. After you start the program up, select the drive letter that represents the memory you want to scan for deleted files.Click the scan button above the list and wait. If there's too many results, then look near the bottom of the window. There should be a"Filter found files" line where you can enter in the file type of the photos you lost. It probably should be this: "*.jpg" Once you have found the files you want to recover, create a folder you want to save them to in your My Documents folder and copy the path to that folder by right clicking on it then clicking properties. The path you need to copy is the line called Location (don't actually copy "Location: ".Just what's after it :p ) Now paste it in the line called "Undelete selected file(s) To" under the "Filter found files" line. Make sure you paste over the existing text. Finally, click the Undelete button to the right and Viola! check the files out in the folder you created in your My Documents folder.
