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!

No on the first question. As for the water issue, you might try taking the batteries out of the camera and leaving the cover off leave the camera in the sun for a few days, it may dry out, if it doesn't then you need a new camera

First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download this photo recovery software

Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

I accidently deleted my pictures on my sony camera,how do i get them back from my camera? its a sony cybershot DSC-W80 .and i took about 3 more pictures after they were all deleted.is that okay? can i...


HI, Yes you can get back those pictures which you have been deleted mistakenly. No worries just install any data recovery software on your pc, like "professional data recovery" connect your camera with pc and get your data back. But one thing is importent here that you can get back only your data if you didn't format your camera memory, and if you have format then data can not be retrive. Thanks for using fixya.

I don't know how to view photos on camera


Since camera model number is not mentioned in question, there are 2 ways to view pictures in Sony camera.
Either you will find Play Back symbol in mode dial on camera, rotate mode dial until playback is selected or camera has Play Back button near LCD which need to be pressed so camera will shift to playback and you can view pictures in memory.
