Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a Pentax Optio M40 Digital Camera, and my photos were somehow deleted off my memory card. Is there any way of recovering any of them at all??? Alannah

Hi,

There is a chance that you will be able to get back some or all of your\015\012digital photos. First things first: DO NOT take any more pictures with\015\012the memory card that you want to recover photos from. If you are away\015\012from home and will be recovering your photos at a later date, remove\015\012the memory card from your camera and put it in a safe place. If you\015\012take any more photos or save any data to your memory card, you may\015\012quite possibly ruin your chances of photo recovery.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Download and install PC Inspector Smart Recovery.
  2. \015\012
  3. With the memory card inserted, connect your digital camera to your\015\012computer. Under “My Computer”, note the drive letter assigned to your\015\012camera’s memory card (usually E: or F:).
  4. \015\012
  5. Start PC Inspector Smart Recover and when it loads, set up your data recovery by:
  6. \015\012
      \015\012
    1. Selecting the drive letter to recover files from.
    2. \015\012
    3. Selecting a folder on your computer where the recovered files are to be saved.
    \015\012
  7. Now, click the “Start” button and let PC Inspector Smarty Recovery work its magic.
  8. \015\012
  9. Browse to the folder that you selected for your recovered files and check out the results of the recovery.
\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012PC Inspector Smart Recovery may take a long time to process\015\012depending on the size of the memory card you’re scanning, but the\015\012results are worth the wait.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012Goodluck..
Most likely if you deleted them they will be gone but you can try taking the card to a camera shop or store that specializes in digital cameras and see if they can get anything back off of the card but I think that you pictures may be gone but an electronics store should be able to get anything on the card off of it for you.


Please let me know if you have any further questions and good luck to you

Hello, I have a Cannon IXUS 95 IS. I accidentally removed some very important photos recently and I was wondering if there is any way to recover them.

I have an Olympus FE-340 digital camera. About a week ago I got a message that my memory card was full after I had deleted all of the photos in the memory. As soon as the camera was turned on it said, "Memory full." I thought it was a problem with the card so I planned to replace it, meanwhile I was using internal memory. It now says "Memory full" and there is nothing stored on the camera. Is there any way to fix this?
