    I do not have a card reader on my computer. I believe the card is damaged as it says I have around 140 pictures and only 30 will download. I have never had trouble downloading with the camera cord plugged into the camera. The 30 pictures downloading, despite repeated attempts. I took the sandisk into the store and attempted 3 times to down load. It took much longer than it should (per store help) for that number of pictures. In the end the machine said to take the sandisk out, but none of the pictures downloaded and it read an error message on 2 different machines. The store help feels the SD card is damaged even though I can view all the pictures on the camera.

Why you thniking that your SD card is damaged? Some error message there?

Keep in mind thet 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.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag and drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, or you can use Windows Photo Gallery or any other photo cataloging program.


Keep us updated.

Try to retrieve the files from the memory into your computer, if you can't see the pictures after they are moved, they might have been corrupted while you were using the camera.
In theory, you might have placed the camera near a strong magnetic field, like a speaker. This could explain the files being corrupted if that's the problem you have.

Download any pictures you have on the "new" memory card to the computer. I'm sure the card memory lock us in the unlock position or you wouldn't have got this far.

Anyway once the pictures have been downloaded to the computer hard drive do a proper disconnect or eject, safely remove device (different computers use different language for the same darn thing) in short shut off the link before disconnecting the memory card from the computer. Once this has been done and the memory card is back into the camera format the card. Formatting is necessary for any new card to program it to the camera it is going to be used in. Also after each download of pictures from a memory card to the computer eject (properly shut it off) and then format the card again. This give the camera a clean medium to perform at it's optimum and place clean new pictures on the memory card. Okay for the larger cards I ran into this with my pro camera and needed to connect to the manufactures web site and download updated firmware once that was done I was able to feed 8gig card into my camera. I full suspect that if you go to Konica/Minolta web site that you will be able to download camera firmware updates. It's just amazing what this will do for the performance of the camera pro or consumer type. Have fun hope this was a help

My son mistakenly deleted his pics from his Kodak EasyShare M1033. Is there any way to retrieve them?


Yes, but you will need to purchase a "Rescue" program such as Rescue - Pro, this enables you to search a camera memory card, and retrieve the last images taken.  Beware however that if your son has taken more photos after the ones he deleted then the "Rescue" software may have trouble. 
The best option is to withdraw the camera card from use until you have used the "Rescue" software, to prevent corruption to the image files. These programs are available for down load off the web, at very reasonable prices, or maybe available when purchased with a high end memory card, such as San Disk Extreme IV Series Cards.
Hope this helps Ian

I cannot retrieve pictures from my camera. When I plug it in to my USB port, my computer is not recognizing it. I have a Canon Powershot S30, my operating system is Windows XP.


Most Compact cameras come with a software disk that has the photo software pre-loaded. My experience is that once you have loaded the software and uploaded your pictures, you can then convert the file to XP, or better still, to Photoshop.

Hope this helps

Format button


Only with special software that usually only computer pros have. If you did not take any more pictures and "write over" the ones you deleted, then they are still there; just "lost", i.e., there is no longer a marker to tell the camera or PC where they are. With the marker deleted the camera thinks the space is free. Get it? This is the case with a regular hard drive, anyway.

A computer repair pro can usually retrieve the data if it's critical to you, but it may cost you $100. I would call a local computer repair shop and ask them. There are places listed on the internet that does this but I cannot vouch for any of them and it's pretty impersonal.

Retrieving file


There are companies that claim to be able to retrieve deleted files on mem cards, if their space has not been written over by other pics taken sense, or a mem card FORMAT. Google it.

Your better approach may be to try to recover the files showing 3Meg size on your computer download. Sounds like mem card quit working correctly after first 100 photoes. Was this a name brand SD card like San Disk or Panasonic? Beware of off brand junk sold on ebay or other sites CHEAP. They are designed to report back the size they claim to be, but are 1/2 size capacity or less in reality. You never know until you need your photos. The other thing is SD cards fail and are never a good as a BackUp source for files. For file xfers only in general.

Good lesson for all is to be sure all your pics show up on your computer before deleting on camera.

San disk and vista


Try your sandisk to other computer and if appearing same problems may it comes to conclusion that it was damage. maybe some circuit of your sand disk is damage or maybe your files cannot be access anymore but and most probably u can use your san disk if you goes to formatting.
