Question about Digital Cameras
Help- Our entire two week European vacation is on a 4gb Kingston SCHC card, which I bought along with a new Panasonic DMC-FS 3 camera just before the trip. I am unfamiliar with the HC format, but was told by the salesperson the Panasonic required the HC card. It worked fine during the trip. After the trip, I inserted the HC card into the card reader I have used for my SD cards and it did not read. I then reinserted the SCHC card into the camera and now I have a card error message and I cannot access the pictures at all, even through the camera. I am very worried. Advice is very much appreciated.
As to recover deleted pictures, recommend you have a try of Wondershare Photo Recovery, a program which can recover lost pictures, videos can music with both Windows and Mac version, you can free download the program from the sites,
(For Windows Users)
(For Mac OS Users)
1. Take the free trial version before you buy.
2. Before your deleted items are recovered, do not take more photos or videos.
I hope you good luck, Merry Christmas!

Hi - You need an SDHC reader for these high capacity cards.
See the Wiki entry here.
It is probable that your pictures can be recovered once you buy an SDHC reader. Try the following:
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!
