First do not panic! It is possible to recover your pictures if you take care. Take the card from the camera (powered off) and if it has a "write protect" tab then lock it now. Do not try and write anything to the card or you risk causing more problems.

You can either plug in you camera to the PC as it should appear as a “Removable Drive” or put the card in a card reader attached to your PC.

Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a FREE utility that will recover your photos from the following link:

http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec

If you need something a little more "user friendly" then you will need to buy the software. If you search the web for photo recovery software you will find many.
One I have used successfully is RescuePro that used to be bundled with some Sandisk products. Now you can get it from the link below:

http://www.lc-tech.com/software/prwindetail.html.

You can try the demo to see what you can recover before buying.

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to the card until you can recover your pictures to your PC safely!

Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

Make sure that you do a format in your computer before you reinstall your card,check to see which format you require some want fat 32 others may require a different format.

I have 60 gb of pics from my grandsons lives on a clickfree 1tb external drive. We moved, I plugged it back in, and now I can't access the data.


Yes, it probably is recoverable. I have often recovered data from drives with this issue but it is not simple and if you make a mistake you can further damage your data. Your best bet is to contact a data recover specialist. Try to remember that hard drives are physical devices and all physical devices will eventually fail. If something is important, you need to have more than one copy.

Can erase all pic at one time


The best way to erase all your pics at one time is to format the memory card. In fact, the memory card should be formatted each time you finish downloading the pics to your computer. Formatting not only erases the pics but also cleans up the directory structure and file information. FixYa is full of people asking how to retrieve pics from memory cards that haven't been formatted recently.

How do i format my memory card to GE x5 so i can see pics


"format" means erase. Is that what you want to do? If not, please be specific as to what you're trying to do so we can help but please, do not format unless you want to erase all of your pics.

I have a card error on my screen


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 tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact 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.

My 10 year daughter tried to delete a picture she didnt like. She pressed the wrong button and erased all frames by mistake. All our wonderful holiday pics gone ! is there anyway of getting these back -...


If she only deleted them instead of formatting them, there are expensive software programs that can retrieve the pictures providing you didn't keep adding more pictures to the card.

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.
