Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD960 IS Digital Camera ?

I just bought the Canon PowerShot SD960 IS Digital Camara and I did not format the new 8 GB disk before I started taking pictures and now when I insert my disk into my computer it does not recognize there is anything there. How can I download them to my computer or onto a CD..?? Please help, thank you so much. Lisa


Answers :

The card format can be damaged by removing it while its being written to .. also sometimes if the battery goes dead while its writting to the card .. .. if it is damaged then reformattting it will erase your pictures but will likely return the card to service .. if you want to recover your photos then dont reformat until you have run a recovery program ... google "photo recovery" .. there are many choices for software that can recover most or all your pictures ... if you look around you might find a free version or at least low cost .. you can find "photo recovery reviews" that can tell you what is best .. if your camera can still read the files then you can hook up a usb cable and download from the camera .. if the card format is damaged however then the camera wont read it either .. there are also "photo recovery services" .. that will restore your photos for a fee ...
