Optio X software wiped HELP!!!

I have managed to wipe the software on my Optio X. I was trying to recover the internal memory space which showed 13Mb (I think) total and 4.1Mb available. Having wiped it the camera would turn on, but only the picture through the lens was on the screen. No function, menu, control information is on the screen. I can see the camera on a Mac as a drive, and it is different if an external card is plugged in. I have downloaded the firmware update, copied to an SD card and run thrugh the instructions to update it. It is now recognised as V1.01. However, there is no change to the screen. Should the firmware control all of the functions, or is there some other "user" software I have to install?

I accidentally 'deleted' all images from the memory card and can not find any on internal drive. HOW can I restore images from the card? Are they really completely wiped? or is it just the pointers to the...

There is some expensive software that will restore your pics as long as you haven't taken any more pictures on the card. You have to decide if the expense is worth it. Just Google the words "deleted picture restoration software."

Wiping WD hard drive

I suggest that you use Darik's Boot and Nuke ("DBAN")application to completely Esare the Hard Drive. It is a freeware application.

Darik's Boot and Nuke ("DBAN") is a self-contained boot disk that securely wipes the hard disks of most computers. DBAN will automatically and completely delete the contents of any hard disk that it can detect, which makes it an appropriate utility for bulk or emergency data destruction.

My pictures have been wiped off of my memory card, but it is not empty. there is used up space on the card; however, no pictures. how can i recover my deleted pictures?

you can recover photos from memory card with memory card recovery software, I had success with steps below
1. Do not save any new file to memory card.
2. Connect your card to computer. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in My Computer.
3. Download recovery software, recommended one is asoftech photo recovery (simply because i was using it and it worked)

4. Install and open the photo recovery program, select your memory drive, and click 'Start' button to start scanning process which will find your deleted photos.

Hard drive

Hi,
You can install a software called partition magic and use it to merge the two partitions into one.
But you might need to free some space on your C drive. What you can do is copy (CUT) all your My Documents data and paste it to your D drive or your second drive. This should free a lot of space enough to install partition magic.

You can download the trial version software from http://www.soft32.com/download_151.html
Install it and merge your partitions and then you can uninstall or purchase if you want.

Memory overload

Are you formatting it thru Windows Media Player or My Computer? If its WMP, try under My Computer, if it was under My Computer, try using Disk Management. Right click on My Computer and select Manage. Then in the next window, select Disk Management on the left side. ON the right side at the top, you should see your device listed, right click and select format. If your device does not show up in Disk Management, change the mode on the device via Settings>Mode or USB Mode. Best of Luck.

Bug in the Optio S40?

Somewhere I read to be careful using cardreaders, using your memory card in different camera's and managing your card via the computer. Appearantly all of these can corrupt your card. The advice is to hook your camera directly up to your computer to transfer images and perhaps it is wise to erase images through the camera's menu instead of via the transfer program of the computer. Try formatting the card using the camera's menu and see if the problem persists.
