Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera ?

My husband was viewing pictures on the camera and format came up so he hit ok, and it came up again and he hit ok, now we cannot retrieve any pictures. It says no pic's to view. Where did they go!!!, and how do we retrieve them? This is the first time we have used a memory card.


Answers :

Ok! I hope you can learn a valuable lesson\012to back up everything important next time before you are starting to format\012your camera.
\012\012But, this time, in order to restore these\012lost pictures, you can try to apply a deleted photo recovery freeware that can do its utmost to retrieve all your\012wanted photos back successfully just in the same way as it completely gets back\012the data of my friend off from his camera memory card:

\012\012PS: Next time, you'd better be more careful about your\012needed data.
When u format, the files arnt gone they are still there.\015\012Formating just removes the index to the files so the device\015\012cant reconise them.\015\012Get software called rescue pro.\015\012it gets all files from formated memory cards\015\012it even does hard drives!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My Canon SD 870 Camera came with a free SD card. Everything seems fine with the card until I try to download the pictures to my computer. I used the camera to format the card after the first time I had problems. I assumed this would fix it but it has happened again. I don't have problems with my other memory cards, just the one this camera came with. I can view the most recent pictures using the camera but how do I transfer the pictures to my computer? Thanks.


How are you transferring pictures with the other cards? Are you using a\015\012USB cable and plugging the camera into the PC? If not, how are you\015\012doing it. Let me know the answer... I have some suggestions for you.\015\012Regards,\ ... Canon Digital Cameras

Every time I try and upload pictures onto my computer using my Nikon s4000, the pictures are extremely distorted, but look completely fine on the camera itself. I use the chord that came with the camera to transfer them onto my computer. This is the second s4000 I've had, because the first one i purchased had the same exact problem. The only way that the pictures aren't distorted are when I upload them to my boyfriend's laptop by taking the memory card out of my camera and putting it in his lapt

I just bought a nikon coolpixs210. I put the memory card in and took pictures without first formatting it. I downloaded the images onto my computer. I put the memory card back into my camera to format it and delete the images on it. I can't find any place to do that. Nothing came up to give me that option and I don't see anything in the menu for that. Can you please help me. Thanks for your time and patience. Sincerely, Jeanee

Polaroid Model a815 just bought yesterday: I took pictures with it and turned it off to get another item to photograph. When I turned it back on I got "Card Error" then a screen to Format Card: Cancel/Execute. I could not move to hit the cancel. It would only take Execute. It sat there "Busy" until it timed out. When I turned it back on I was back to the Card Error. I removed the Card and tried a different one. None of the buttons would work, but I still had the Format Screen showing. According

I have a Panasonic DMC-FX12 digital camera. Before I left on vacation, I took all the pictures OFF of the camera and recharged the battery. I took only 4 pictures before the error message "Built in Memory Card Full" came on the screen and refused to allow me to take any more pictures. HELP! A secondary problem I am having with the same camera is that I have to turn the ON/OFF switch on and off several times before the lens finally comes out.
