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!

Did all my pictures get deleted when i press the word fomatted while i was in the menu? Is there anyway to get all my pictures back?


I have had success with this photo recovery program... Download the program from

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

My son has accidentally deleted all his holiday photos from his digital camera. Are they gone for ever or might they still be 'hidden' on the card?

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.

Vivitar V15 deleted photos, please help me revover the photos


No such Vivitar software, but those deleted photos can ONLY be recovered provided they are not fully overwritten. The data is still there on the memory card or stick of your camera as long as you haven't taken any more photos since then.

They can be recovered using photo recovery software, there are lots of them available with different benefits and features. I recommend you have a try of Wondershare Photo Recovery, a software which can also recover lost video and music files. Get the program from the links below.

Photo Recovery Download (if you are running Windows OS)
Mac Photo Recovery Download (for Apple Mac OS X)

Download and install the trial version on your computer, then connect your camera memory card ans start to recover.

Tips:
1. Take the free trial version first.
2. Before your deleted items are recovered, do not save more files to the card.

I hope you good luck, Happy the Holiday!

I accidentally deleted all the pictures files from DCIM file folder on the computer (Imac) using "move to trash" option instead deleted them using camera (nikon D40x) menu. Now, even there is no images on...


Photos can be successfully retrieved from a memory card - however there is a catch. When you delete a photo, you really just tell the camera/computer to act like it isn't there. The actual bits in memory aren't changed to delete it (there is software you can get to actually delete them, but its usually completely unnecessary).
To get back your lost picture files try to use flash file recovery software. http://www.panterasoft.com/file-recovery/index.html

Lost pictures


When a solid state disk as a memory card is formatted using the camera menu option, or perforing a Fast Formatting with a computer, the File system on media is deleted and overwritten.

If a complete format is done using a computer, the clusters containing data are erased before formatting. In that case there is no way to recover the data files.

Often there is no way to recover data from a formatted Disk or Memory card.

Try following the instructions on website below:

Olympus 850sw- write protect and picture error


Sounds as if the memory card has corrupted data on it now. You will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Menu button - right arrow to Setup Menu - right arrow to Format- Press Ok. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect and picture error messages and the card can be used again.

I think you are out of luck, but you might go to your camera manufacturers website and check the specificifcs on your camera. I am not familiar with your camera, so I don;t know how you internal memory works, etc. Good luck and I'm sorry :0).

Empty Card


It appears that you have accidently formatted your card, this is one reason we should download all of our pictures after every session. I have done this twice, but of course my lost pictures weren't nearly important as yours but a loss is a loss, and I now transfer all my pictures to the computer after each photo session. Sorry about that!
