I do not have a memory card in my cam, so I just use the memory that is on it. I had 26 images and my memory was full. I tried to download the pics to my pc and it wouldn't recognize the camera and it was saying no photos found. I thought something was set wrong on the camera so I went to settings and options and then to "format" and "default". I think I pressed "ok" on either one of those and then all of my photos were gone. Is there any way to retrieve them? Please help!!!!! They were very important photos and I am not very knowledgable with digital cams.

Re: Lost Images (photos)
If you have the camera software loaded on the computer- remove it.
Now plug the camera in and Windows Scanner/amera Wizard should come up.
Go to my computer and see if you have a new removeable media drive come up.
If you have do this.
Gon on line and goto www.konvar.com and download and install PC Inspector.
Run this program and directit the the new drive whil will be the camera. and follow the prompts.

I think that you're only able to shoot 26 images with your Camera.
This may be due to limitation in the internal memory as well as the high resolution you set in the Camera.
Using a higher capacity memory card(EG SD CArd, Memory stick etc) will resolve the issue without affecting the quality of the picture.
The another fact that affect the number of images stored in the Camera is the image size(EG:1MP, 2MP, 3MP, VGA etc. )
Here setting Lower resolution like VGA or 1 MB will allow you to capture more images.
However, in most cases, you cannot capture 26 images in good quality in normal Cameras (it comes around 2 to 5).. So you might be already set the Camera in Less Image size. Hence the available option is using a memory card..
Please get back to me with the exact model # of the Camera. I might be able to give more specific information.. http://www.fixya.com/users/shajanrs
Thanks for understanding..
you can try this memory card recovery software called asoftech photo recovery that helped me before 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 this photo recovery (simply because i was using it and it worked) http://www.asoftech.com/apr/ 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.
Your camera creates folders on the SD card to hold the images. It puts about 100 images in each folder. (See page 111 in the User Guide.) When you erase images, it may only be erasing the images in one folder. But your computer still sees the images in the other folder(s). To completely erase all images, use the "Format" function (see pages 25 - 26 in the User Guide). To completely clear it, use the Low Level Format option. You can download the User Guide here.
Don't fret, your images are probably still there. But take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:
And finally, after (and only after) you recover your images, format your card. This should refreshen your card to be usable again. Format it in the camera, using a "Full" or "Low Level" format, and NOT a "Quick" format. Keep in mind that the photos will no longer be recoverable after doing the Full or Low Level format.
