Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I accidentally re-formatted my camera and lost all my pictures. I have a Canon PowerShot A650 IS with a 4GB SanDisk SDHC Card loaded. Is there a software I can use to get my photos back? My computer is a Mac running on OS 10.4.11. thanks

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

With the indulgence of all...

To the concern of audrey685:
Is there a software I can use to get my photos back - Yes;
I do have access to a PC if necessary. Is one software better than the other -
Yes & No, it's more of used & tried, stick with it
Is there a way to view ALL the solution history I have received from everyone so I can decide -
unfortunately No, it's the system, once you reject, you can only view new one posting
Have you tried this software?Is it pretty easy to use -
Yes, as said, choice is tried & used, stick to it;
Do you know if there is a difference between the free download version... -
free/demo limitations/restrictions. All would be recovered & displayed but would allow only few files to be saved. Do the process again for the next few and so on...

My tried and tested, GetDataBack for FAT V3.64. Demo will allow full recovery but would restrict saving to a few. Paid version, no restrictions; ease of use - simple click on Next; will ask where to be saved.

Most of the solutions with examples of file recovery software are from those who have tested them and have had very good experiences hence they recommend. Most (but not all) deal with computers and problems similar to yours on a daily basis.

If you reject this proposed solution, then again it is possible that this will no longer be viewable by you in the next cycle. But a new solution posted would be.

Should any of the previous solutions be to your preference, pls name the expert and arrangements can be made that credit be given to him.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
Hi there,

We cannot recover the data if you have reformatted the Camera Flash memory. pictures can only be recovered if you had deleted them. There is mile difference between Delete and Reformat. I'm sorry for the sad news.

I have had and used my fuji finepix A204 camera for 7 years with no problems. My son had a new (fuji finepix) camera for Xmas and he downloaded the software onto my PC. Before he left for home he uninsalled this software. I can not now get my photos to upload into any of the photo programs on my computer. Adobe, my pictures, microsoft picture it or fuji fine pics.

I normally use a small 32mb memory card in the olympus D-390 but used an olympus fe-130 over the holidays with a 256mb memory card. I do not have the usb cord for the fe-130 so I put the 256mb card in the d-390 camera and plugged it into my computer to load up my photos but I get a blue screen on the camera with options of Power off or format. Is the card too big for the camera? it works fine in the other to let me take photos and view them, if I had the cord for it or went to a store to print
