Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A630 Digital Camera ?

Formatted photos While on holiday I mistakenly formatted over 100 photos. Please can anyone help retrieve them.

If you have tried taking ANY photos on that memory card, 99% chance that your old photos have been overwritten & are gone for good.
Hey midgykins,
\015\012 There are numerous photo recovery programs available for either sale or for free over the internet. I would search the internet for photo recovery program and you should get multiple results. I would try the free programs first because if one program doesn't recover your images it doesn't mean another program wouldn't work. I hope this helps!

The CF card in the wife's S9500 has ceased to be read via the USB cable in both Windows XP and Linux (both systems saw the camera before as an external drive). I cannot think of anything I have done to cause this. The card has integrity and we managed to get the 400+ photos off onto CD's via a PC in the local photo shop. I have re-formated the card and tried every setting I can find on the camera but..... no connection via USB seen.... can anyone help here please? Thanks - Peter
