I have about 140 pics on my memory card. When my card got full I took it out and put an new one in. When I went to download pics it wasn't reading the card, so I put the card back in the cam and it gave me the option of Powering off or Format, I tried the format and than it said warning will erase all photos, so I canceled. Anyway to get these pics off of there?? HELP
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! If you are unable to read the card in the camera use an external card reader with these programs. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
