Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital 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!

Tips for a great answer:
First of all, you should stop saving any new files to your canon camera (or SD card) or taking new pictures with you camera.
Then find some photo recovery software from this site Best Computer Software, which is of high quality and easy-to-use.
Here are the steps:
Step 1: Download and install the Digital Photo Recovery Software.
Step 2: Connect your camera (or SD card, memory card etc) to your PC or Mac.
Step 3: Scan the source drive where your lost pictures located.
Step 4: Recover the lost pictures and save them to another drive instead of the source drive.
