Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?


Answers :

No, they'll be on the memory card as long as they have not been overwritten with new files. This will be true even if you accidentally "erased" them or even if you reformatted the card.

If you put the card into an external card reader and use SD card recovery software then you should be able to recover the data. Do not use the card afterwards as you'll never be able to trust it again, SD cards are pretty cheap these days so replacement is often only a little more than one would pay to buy and then develop and print a couple of rolls of 35mm film. The only exception is if the card has suffered internal physical damage such as caused by exposure to high voltage static electricity; if so the card and data are both lost.

Best of luck, as long as you don't re-use your card there's a very good chance of getting your photos back. Please don't forget to take a moment to rate my answer.

When I view my photos I have already taken they look good until I try to zoom in, then the photos go fuzzy in multiple color stripes taking over the screen. Will my photos be fine when I load them to my computer? Is this my camera or my memory card. I put someone else's memory car in my camera and could zoom in and it was fine. I put mine back in my camera, took two pictures, and could zoom in on those photos and it was fine, but not on the previous pictures I have taken. I did plug my camera
