Question about Sony Digital Cameras

1 Answer

I have a Sony cybershot 8.2mp and have accidentally deleted all the photos I had taken, not sure whether they were saved to the camera or memory stick but they seem to be gone, does anyone know if it is possible to retrieve them, ie is there a recycle bin/trash can somewhere within the camera/memory stick?

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!

I have a sony cybershot T50..Accidentally a few of my important pictures got deleted..Is there any way in which I can recover them asap.Its really important.


All your pictures are saved on the memory card of your digital camera automatically.So you can recover pictures from memory card with data recovery software.I have a professional program on my computer that can recover data after deeply scanning your memory card to look for lost data you accidentally deleted or formatted. But you had better have stopped using the memory card of your camera. Because, once the pictures were overwritten by new ones,they are gone for good.By the way,you can download it and scan your memory card for free to preview whether your erased pictures can be recovered.Get it from http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoverystandard.htm

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

How to recover pictures from sony cybershot


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 called asoftech photo recovery

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

How I can recover the photos from my camera if accidentally erased


First of all, you should stop saving any new files to your camera (or SD card) or taking new pictures.

Then find some photo recovery software from the following websites, which are able to recover deleted or formatted photos and movies from cell phone, digital camera, memory card and SD card etc.

Digital Photo Recovery for Windows

Here are the steps:

Step 1: Download and install the Digital Photo Recovery Software.
Step 2: Connect your Sony cybershot camera (or SD card, memory card etc) to your PC.
Step 3: Scan the source drive where your lost pictures located.
Step 4: Recover the lost pictures and save them to another drive instead of the source drive.

Best regards!
