Re: My camera erased my pictures
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.
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 recovered
your pictures to your PC safely!

Finally AFTER you've recovered your photos, consider formatting your card IN YOUR CAMERA (did you do this when you first got the card? if not, this is what eventually happens). Keep in mind formatting the card will also totally and permanently erase the card. Press menu, then select the tools menu, then scroll down to the selection stating your cards memory capacity and select it. Then follow the on-screen prompts for a "low-level" format. This should help prevent this from happening again in the future.
This seriously does work. I just took the battery out, placed it back
in and when it was accessing I banged it (not even that hard) against
my knee and it now can focus in and out. I almost can't believe that it
worked, but it surely did.
These cameras have an internal store and also can use a card. So, when you add a card, it is writing to that store and only shows you the pictures stored there unless you change the device settings or remove the card. If so, the images you have on the EasyShare One internal store may be originals Another possibility is that you did a BragBook synch to EasyShare and you might be able to see these images in your 'Favorites' view. The 'Camera Favorites' or BragBook pictures are a smaller version of original images, to allow you to carry more pictures with you to share, but these pictures may be a lower resolution version of the images you took. They would be sufficient for printing 4x6 pictures, but not enlargements. Change to Favorites mode to see if they show up that way. Good luck! DigiChick.
use a recover program...like the one used to recover data from formated dvds..and use it on your memory card,inserted into a card reader..I dont suggest you to use it in the camera and you can do the same with moving pictures..use the copy/paste option...put them into the card...attention...only D40X made pictures.. good luck;)
