Canon A560 will not erase pictures

\015 I have a Canon A560 with a 2GB SD Card. I have tried clearing my memory card 3 ways:1) Completely deleting the contents of the DCIM folder via Windows Explorer (having tried with the memory card reader and through USB cable)2) Choosing "Menu" then "erase all images"3) Deleting each photo individuallyEach of the 3 methods gives the indication that the memory card has been cleared (the latter 2 will show on the display "No Image" when in the playback mode immediately after deletion). However, when I power off then power on the camera, the images are back!To note, the "Lock" slider on the memory card is in the "Off" position. I have also tried to format the memory card but receive the message "Memory Card Error" then the camera powers down. Deleting pictures has never been an issue before. Any suggestions?\015

I have a Canon PowerShot A550. I was resetting some of my features and accidentally pushed format. As you know, that automatically erased all my pictures. I had some very important pictures on there that I wanted to keep. Isn't there a recycle bin or something so that you can retrieve your pictures? It would be a shame if, because of human error, I lost all of my pictures. Please advise. Thank you, Dottie


The only way to retrieve after a format is to use a recovery software that does that type of thing. It does not have a recycle bin and even if it did a format removes everything. the only way to recover is using a software such as the one at ... Digital Cameras

I have a canon powershot sd1100 IS and bought it on ebay back in the fall. I havent had any problems and it was in great condition. One night I went to erase some pictures before going out- the camera was fine. About an hour later, I took the camera out of my purse and when I turned it on I saw the screen was white whether I went to take a picture or view one. I can still take pictures and load them on my computer but I can't see what I'm taking because of the white. Is there a way to fix this?

Canon A560 camera problem - the images are overexposed. I checked the exposure setting, AWB, and all other settings and they are all normal. There is an exposure setting where I can set to + or - 2, but setting it to -2 does not help much. Outdoor photos are almost completely white. There is some detail in black objects. Indoor photos are overexposed. Flash pictures seem OK. The picture on the display is OK. I compared some macro photos taken a few weeks ago with macro photos now. The good photo
