When you attach the camera to your PC it will appear as a "removable drive" which you can see if you look in "MyComputer".
In "MyComputer" you will normally see your main hard disk as the C: drive, your camera will have a another letter e.g. D:

It is this drive letter that you need to select in the Photo Recovery software.

Hope that helps, leave more questions if you have them.

Best regards,

    Buy an external USB card reader & put your memory card in it.
    It will then appear as a removable drive & be able to use the software.

    Good luck!

CR2 files are created when you shoot RAW files. Your computer cannot read them without a Canon RAW plugin in whatever image processing software you're using.

Your camera can be set to record in JPEG, RAW or JPEG and RAW.

Vanished pictures recovery

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:

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:

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!

Your camera has a service notice regarding the CCD image sensor issue. If you log onto, it will advise you of what to do to get this repaired free of charge (if it is indeed this issue). Canon will supply you with a shipping label to cover this inconvenience.

Hope this helps!
