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!

Accidentally deleted video from Cannon EOS 600D Rebel T3i


It should be no problem getting it back with recovery software. Just try to stop taking any more photos or videos to lessen the chance of overwriting your lost video. See this article for instructions on how to recover deleted/formatted videos/photos.

Accidentally clicked OK when message 'format memory card' showed up when viewing my pictures. Canon PowerShot A570. Can the pictures be recovered?


Well, no matter you photos in Canon camera got deleted, formatted by accident or became inaccessible due to camera memory card errors. Chances of recovery is possible as long as you take the right action.

Take a try of this Canon photo reocvery software, Not only general photo formats, but Canon RAW photo formats (.cr2 or .crw) can be retrieved easily.

Note: before the photos are recovered, Never should you attempt to take more photos or save more data to the memory card in case chances of photo recovery might be reduced. Hope it helps. Regards.

I have a Fujifilm finepix camera and my fujifilm XD card has a read error and won't show my pictures on the camera or in a card reader. Are there any free recovery programs out there?


Sometimes memory card error happens without any notice. But luckily most of the time we are able to fix the memory card error and get back files on the memory card. Take a look at this guide:

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.
