Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S400 / IXUS 400 Digital Camera ?

Pictures gone! I have aPowershot S400 camera. We took about 50 pictures on a LEXAR 12X 256MB flashcard. We are able to see and download the last 16 pictures we took(about 8MB). The others are nowhere to be found. Howerver, the memory card indicates that half the card is full. Is there anyway to retrieve the missing pictures???


Answers :

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're cheap:

\015\012After you've recovered the photos and backed them up on your computer, recommend formatting the card in your camera (note that this will erase all photos on your card). Look for the "Low Level" format option in your camera's menus. A low level format should help prevent this from happening again.

I have never lost any pictures that I have taken with my Canon SD500 camera with a memory card but I ended up buying a 2 GB memory card while in Hawaii and was able to take pictures. For whatever reason, some of my pictures are missing. What could have possibly happened to the pics and is there any way of retrieving them?

Data missing Just got home from a 3 month trip and found that there is a chunk of missing pictures and video from the memory stick I had in my Sony digital video camera (model # TRV 22). The strange part of this is that the missing photos/video are in the middle of the trip. I have 1600 pictures that were taken before and after this large chunk of data.

Pictures missing some (not all) of pictures taken end up missing from the camera ; they can't be viewed on the camera or loaded into my pc. I know the pics were there but missing later. this has happened with two separate memory cards so I know it's not a card problem. I've had the camersa a few years and this is the first problem. One of the memory cards intermittantly comes up with a "memory card error" message but not the card that was exclusively in use when the problem first showed itself.


If you haven't done so yet, take one of the cards, reformat it correctly (please ask again if you need info on how to do this) and see if you get any change.\015\012\015\012Are you using a PC card reader to transfer the photos or a USB cable?\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera
