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!

I accidentally deleted all the pictures in my digicam stored in a SD memory card, is there any way i can recover it?


Yes, they'll still be on the memory card as long as they have not been overwritten with new files. This will be true even if you accidentally "erased" them or even if you reformatted the card.

If you put the card into an external card reader and use free SD card recovery software then you should be able to recover the data. If you can't recover the information, then bear in mind that the best recovery software can recover almost anything but is not free. You could choose to invest in better software or send the card to a data recovery specialist and pay a professional fee for the service.

Best of luck, as long as you don't re-use your card before trying to recover the data then there's a very good chance of getting your photos back. Please don't forget to take a moment to rate my answer.

I need to recover accidently erased image files from my sd card for my Canon S2-IS camera


First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download this photo recovery software
http://www.asoftech.com/apr/
Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.
