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!

How to Recover Pictures From Fujifilm FinePix S700 Storage Media


With 7 mega pixel camera, 10x optical zoom, 2.5 LCD, picture stabilization mode, and i-Flash intelligent Flash, the Fujifilm FinePix S700 fulfills all the requirements of any photographer. The storage media (SD and xD memory cards) used in this camera allows the photographer to save audios, videos, and photos of different sizes. Damage in storage media can occur any time, resulting in fatal consequences, like inaccessibility of data saved in the memory card. In most cases, the photographer encounters an error message stating that the card is corrupted. To overcome such corruption scenarios, the photographer needs to restore the data from an updated backup. But all photographers do not create a backup on regular basis. For them, a third-party Camera recovery software acts as a boon and helps them recover the data.
As a real-world instance, you encounter the below error message while trying to view the pictures saved in your SD card (inserted in Fujifilm FinePix S700):
"CARD ERROR"
After the above error message pops up, the data saved in the SD card becomes inaccessible.
Cause:
Few main causes for the above error message are:
1.Incorrect SD card format.
2.Incompatible SD card.
3.Memory card corruption due to unexpected camera shutdown, virus infection, and interrupted read or write operation.
Resolution:
To resolve the above error message and to access the data saved in SD card, you will need to:
1.Use a compatible SD card.
2.In case of memory card corruption, format the card in Fujifilm FinePix S700 camera. Though formatting brings the card in reusable state, all the audio, video, and picture files get deleted. To recover the deleted data, you will need to choose a powerful Camera recovery software.
Such recovery tools use effective scanning methods to ensure complete Camera data recovery. These tools can be downloaded from the Internet and used by anybody. Such applications are safe as they harm the original data saved in the memory card.
Digital camera recovery software is a world-renowned Photo Recovery utility used for recovering data from almost every type of memory card. This software ensures complete recovery of digital files, irrespective of their size or type. Compatible with Windows and Mac OS X, the read only software also recovers data from other storage media, like Zip drives, hard drives, etc.

How many pictures does 512 MB hold on SD card


That depends on the number of pixels, the picture format, and JPEG compression if JPEG format. Picture files can be anywhere from under a megabyte to over 30MB depending on the camera, so a 512MB card can hold anywhere from under ten to over five hundred pictures.

If you're asking about a particular camera, please add a comment to this question and specify the make and model.

Why wont my SD/SDHC card format ?


Sometimes certain cards will save your media to them but won't format. It has to be a SD for the type of software you have.

Formatted pictures and now they are gone


If the pictures were on a memory card and you haven't done anything with the card since you formatted it, you may have a chance to recover at least some of the pictures. Do a Google search for "data recovery software" and select a program for your computer and operating system. Put the card into a card reader connected to your computer and run the program.

I AM USING PANASONIC LUMIX 10 MEGA PIXELS DIGITAL CAMERA. NOW IT CAN'T PLAY BACK THE PICTURES.


Remove off all the data/pictures from the memory card. Format the card and replace after keeping off the batttery from the camera for about 30 minutes..
Now shoot and check if the display comes back, if not there is an issue with a logic gate not switching back the data from memorry to the display unit.
This can be in the main board but might need assistance from panasonic.... even if identified the spare needs to be sourced.
Helpful?

You may need to try some photo recovery software to rescue the pictures, here are some for your option. You may not recover all the pictures, but will recover most of them.

Photo Recovery (for Windows)
Photo Recovery for Mac


Both programs are able to recover pictures, videos and music files.

Note: Before your files are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the SD card in case the original lost files are overwritten.
