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!

To delete individual photos, use the Delete button (cursor-up, marked with a trashcan) while in Playback mode. See page 45 of this manual. To delete all photos in internal memory or on a memory card, format the internal memory or the memory card. See page 66.

Try this freeware call smart Data Recovery

This is different from other recovery software because it not only recover lost file from harddrive and floppy like most do, but also recover from removable media like flash drive.


Hope you can get back the images

Delete select pictures from camera


While viewing the image, press the trashcan button. The camera will ask for confirmation of the delete.
I would recommend against making a habit of keeping some pictures on the camera or memory card and deleting others. You're guaranteed to fragment the memory, leading to camera speed loss and eventual memory corruption. The camera is an image capturing device, not an image storage device. If you need to keep some pictures on the camera, copy them to a computer, format the memory card, and then copy them back using a card reader.

Delete images from camera


You didn't specify the make and model of your camera so I can only give you a general idea.
On most cameras there's a playback mode. You usually get into it by pressing the playback button (almost always marked with a right-pointing triangle). You can then navigate through the stored images with the cursor keys or a command dial. When you find an image you want to delete, you press a button marked with a trash can. The camera may or may not ask for confirmation; if it does, respond.
If you want to delete all images, its better to format the memory card. FixYa is full of people asking how to retrieve images from a card that hadn't been formatted recently.
If you need further assistance, please feel free to reply to this post but be sure to include the make and model of your camera.

Memory card requires formatting, press continue then it states that it will delete everything on memory card,then it does not format, it tells you that you need to format memory card. press cancel and...


Hope you have this figure out if not here goes. Sounds as if the camera is caught in a feed back loop. As long as you have down loaded and saved your images on the computer go ahead and format the card. When it says delete everything on the card select OK and click the start button everyone is happy again. By the way all new card and card after doenloading to the computer should be formatted in the camera. Never format in the computer and deleting images one by one is just a great way to totally mess up a memory card's mind. Format, Format

How do you delete multiple images from camera?


Are the pictures on a memory card? In that case, you're much better off formatting the card. If you continue to delete unwanted pictures, you'll fragment the card and ultimately you'll have problems. Every day somebody posts here with that problem. Formatting cleans things up.

If the pictures are in internal memory, select Internal Memory Tool from the Setup menu, and you can format the internal memory, deleting all the pictures. My earlier comments hold true here as well.

If you insist on keeping some pictures and deleting others, then go into the index (thumbnail) mode. Press the trashcan button, then select [Select] with up/down, then press *. Select images with the arrows, then press * to display the delete indicator on the selected pictures, Press the trashcan, select [OK], then press *.

Deleting Photos From The Memory Stick


Deleting Still images From The Memory Stick This procedure is nearly identical with all of our digital camcorders. The only difference you may find is that there may not be an enter button on your model. If this is the case, the menu dial serves as your enter button when you push it in. * If you want to delete protected images, you must first deactivate the image protection. * An image which has been deleted cannot be recovered. 1. Set the mode switch to MEMORY CARD. 2. Set the power switch to PLAYER. 3. Using the (FWD) and (REV) buttons, search for the still image that you want to delete. 4. Press the MENU button. 5. Turn the MENU DIAL to highlight MEMORY and press the ENTER button. The MEMORY SET submenu will appear. 6. Turn the MENU DIAL to highlight DELETE and press the ENTER button. Using the MENU DIAL, select either THIS FILE or ALL FILES and press the ENTER button. *THIS FILE : deletes only the file currently selected. *ALL FILES : deletes all files stored in the Memory Card. 7. A box will appear to verify whether you wish to delete the image(s). Using the MENU DIAL, select the item. *EXECUTE : deletes the selected image(s). *CANCEL : does not delete the selected image(s) and returns to the previous menu.
