Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

Low Level Format

There is a option to check or uncheck a box called Low Level Format. I unchecked this box and it seems to have wiped off all my pictures, although there was no warning message telling me this would happen. I get NO IMAGES displayed on my screen! How can I restore all the pictures??

Or check the Lock switch on the card is in the up position, like the one on the picture on the left.
This is how the switch should be.
No switch on the card is the same as locked.
Be aware you can format a card in a computer or even in another camera. Before you start using the card in your camera, use the format option in your own camera. Some camera's won't work if the card is not formatted in the own body.

I want some pictures from my camera to download but i don't want all others. how to do it just for especific pictures


There should be an option (usually at the bottom of the page) that will say "check all" and "uncheck all". Mark the "uncheck all" and enter. It will remove all the checks, then you can click on (check) only the ones you want to download.

Hope it helps :)

My sandisk sd card isn't working in my camera. My camera is a vivitar 5024 camera, everytime I try to take a picture it says memory card is not ready, it says switch to internel ram. This memory card is...


Have you tried to format the card.
1.
  • Start up a computer with Windows XP, Vista, windows 7or Insert the SD card into an external memory card reader or into the computer's built in card reader. If it the first time a SD card has been inserted into the computer, Windows will recognize the SD card and automatically install drivers to read the memory card.
  • 2Go to the computer view by clicking on the windows start menu icon in the bottom right corner of the computer. In Windows 7 and Vista click "Computer". In Windows XP click "My Computer"
  • 3Right click on the SD drive under the computer heading. A dialog box with different options for the drive will appear. Click on "Format" to bring up the formatting dialog box.
  • 4Select the type of formatting (also known as file system format). In Windows XP or Vista there are several choices including FAT, FAT 32, and NTFS. In Windows 7 there is an added choice called exFAT formatting. This is an improved FAT formatting type with improved meta data capabilities. Choose the formatting type, name if the drive if desired, check or uncheck the "quick format" option, and press the "Start" button. When the SD card format is complete Windows will provide a notification.
    If you need further assistance please feel free to let me know. Thanks and have great day, Midwest-tek

    After I put the pictures onto the computer the pictures automatically deleted the pictures. Why would it do this and this is only the second time it has happened since I received the camera a year ago.


    Deletion from the camera is an option in your EasyShare software. Open the software, click on TOOLS, then CAMERAS/VIEWERS. Towards the bottom of the screen you'll see a blue bar labeled CAMERA FAVORITES ALBUM PROPERTIES. Just below that is the option ALWAYS REMOVE UNPROTECTED PICTURES FROM DEVICE AFTER TRANSFER. To retain images in the camera after you transfer them, make sure that this box is unchecked.

    I accidentally pressed the formatting button on my digital camera, canon powershot SD790 IS. Not knowing it erases all pictures. My question is can i get my pictures back, and if so how?


    The answer is it depends on whether or not you conducted a "low level" format or not. Such a format will actually write over the card making photo recovery unlikely. But with Canon cameras, format is normally a quick erase (which is recoverable), UNLESS you manually check the "low level format" box in the menu (did you do that?). But either way, there are numerous freeware software options available for photo recovery that may work for you.
    Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:

    Camera doesn't recognize empty card


    Have you ever formatted your card? Recommend that you do this IN YOUR CAMERA. But keep in mind that this will erase your card, so make sure that you have downloaded all your photos to your computer first. Go to the tools menu, then scroll down to the selection stating your memory card's capacity and select it. Then follow the prompts to format it (select "low-level" format for the first time you do this, then uncheck it for any other times you do this). Again, THIS WILL ERASE YOUR CARD, but it will also rejuvenate your card and setup proper file structure to lessen the chance for file corruption.

    Lower level format problem


    Unfortunately, there is little you can do since low level formatting just as same as formatting a hard drive on a computer. There is one way that I know of called data recovery/forensics but this service is extremely expensive. A forensic program called "EnCase" will read any data on the card but the data may be corrupted to the point where there won't be anything of use.
