Once you format a memory card you lose everything that was on the card. It is just the same as if you were to reformat the hard disk on your PC. Not much you can do. Sorry.

The TV was on & I muted it & put the remote in my lap. I must have moved & accidentally pressed a button & the picture disappeared. We have sound but no picture


Remove batteries from Remote. Remove wall plug to television and count to 10. Replace remote batteries. Plug television back in.

If it still does it, check Input, and check brightness settings.

Samsung l100 digital camera. Pressed menu, then "format" in settings. Why did all my photos disappear??


Format completely erases the card and optimizes it to take more pictures. Why did you press it?

Problem with music playing with speakers; pressed FORMAT and all music disappeared!


Hello hiinthesky03...
Okay, I'll discuss your 1st problem first. Check the battery of your mp3 player. Playing songs require a lot of energy.

Secondly, hitting 'format' will empty your mp3 player. So, now that you've formatted it, you download songs and more again and then avoid hitting the 'format' next time if you don't want to lose all your files.

Hope this helps...should you have further questions, just feel free again to post your comment for this answer (to let me know if this helps or not)...Thanks!

I pressed format and then yes and then all my pictures disappeared did they get deleted or what did the format do???


Yes, Format erases all pictures.

If it is a micro SD card or other flash type memory then it would not normally be possible to get the pictures back after that,

My pictures have disappeared on my camera!


Format erases all the files on the memory card.

You may be able to recover them using file recovery software. The first step is to remove the card from the camera. Do NOT take any more photos or do anything else with this card as it will overwrite the data where the old images were, and they will be lost forever.

Then, you need a card reader. You may have one built into your computer or printer. If you don't have a card reader for your camera's type of memory card, you can buy one at any camera or computer store, usually for less than $20.

Then you need image recover software. There are many different programs available. You can install and run the programs in a trial mode, and the program will read your card and tell you how many files it can recover. However, to actually recover the files you need to pay to register the software. Here are some links:

assuming you can access the card in your computer either via the camera or via a card reader you do have a chanve of getting some back - the latest batch and some of earlier sessions if not over written Go to www.konvar.com and download PCInspector, Install the program and run it. direct it to the image source and run the program- see what happens
