    Hi,



    I have a BENQ E30. I plugged it into my PC and opened the folder with my pics in it. I deleted a few that i didnt need and then unplugged the USB wire.

    When I opened it the next time, a lot of my pictures were missing (about 100).Where did they go? HELP! I tried to go through something called 'Card Copy' in my camera but it pulled up some really old pics and not the ones that went missing. Please help me!

    I have a couple of high speed SD cards and every once in a while when I go in to look at pictures on the camera some are blacked out. If I download the pics they come out fine but I don't know what I'm doing that's making this happen on my camera!

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: 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/rescuepr... 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! Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

May you please bring back my music and photos back on my sd card

Have you done anything to the card since you deleted those files? If not, you have a fair chance. Do a Google search for "data recovery software" and select a program for your computer and operating system. Put the card into a card reader connected to your computer, cross your fingers, and run the program.

I have a Casio EXILIM EX-Z100 which has a transcend SD card which has been formatted and I need to recover the photos on it can you recommend software to recover the files.

I have meet a lot of people asking similar question. The answer is absolutely Yes. You can always recover the lost photos from your digital camera even you have formatted the device. Formatting won't make the data in your memory card erased permanently. The pictures you formatted are still in the disk of your memory card, just not accessible right now.

The best way to recover them back is trying some photo recovery programs. A nice one is asoftech photo recovery that helped me before.
http://www.asoftech.com/apr/

This program can deep scan to find your lost photos first and then perform recovery with nice quality. But before your photos are recovered, please don't take more photos in case your lost photo data are overwritten.

Here is the steps you may refer while recover your photos from your camera memory card.

1. Download and install photo recovery program on your computer. Free download from this site:


2. With your memory card inserted, Under "My Computer", note the drive letter assigned to your camera's memory card (usually G: or H:).
3. Start the photo recovery program and select the drive letter that assigned to camera memory card, click "Start".
4. Now the scanning process will start automatically to deep look for the lost pictures. You will then get a list of all recoverable ones. Check if all your pictures are there.
5. Select the pictures you want and click "Next", and you can get back lost photos from camera successfully.
