Having problems with your Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera ?

I have a cannon power shot sd900. I was fooling with the menu and accidently seemed to have erased my photos. Can they be saved?


Answers :

Digital pictures are stored on SD cards as a file. These files occupy a fixed space on SD cards. Once deleted, your pictures will no longer be recognized by the digital camera, however the pictures are still there!\015\012\015\012\015\012
\015\012Take the memory card out or plug your camera into a Mac or Linux machine. If you have a Mac or Linux machine use a terminal window and look for hidden files using ls command.  This will show you the hidden files and your files should be in the .Trashes folder.  You can move them off the memory card with UNIX or Linux.

Displays all white in all modes. Kodak V570. Turn the power on and all I can see is white. I have tried a different battery an no battery, just power cord. I know the camera good enough I can go into the menu options and select some different features without actually seeing the menu. All that seems to work fine and the lens is working ok. I can push the shutter button, the flash goes off. I can't see the photo on the camera, but I can see the photo if I put the SD card into my computer. Please

Card setup When I turn on the camera, it goes straight into "Card Setup". My only options are to "Format" (i.e. erase the memory card) or "Power Off". There doesn't seem to be any way out, or back to the main menu. When I connect the camera to my PC, it shows me the "PC/Print/Exit" menu, but that's as far as it goes. Likewise, the PC won't detect the camera attached via USB port. What can I do? I don't want to lose all my pics.

No power I purchased a Canon 400D about a year ago and shortly afterwards the camera suddenly gave up on me. I took a couple of photos and then nothing. The battery was fully charged and the power light came on when the camera was switched on and remained on even when the camera was switched off. I was going to take the camera in to a service centre a few weeks later for repairs but when I switched the cameraon again, the problem seemed to have disappeared. Since then I have been taking photos w

Lost pictures I had about 103 photos taken and there was no sign that my card was full or anything. I was taking a photo and then all the photos were gone. All it said was no images.

Hello, I have a Cannon IXUS 95 IS. I accidentally removed some very important photos recently and I was wondering if there is any way to recover them. I am desperate to find a way to do this as they are very unique and sentimental photos. The reason I removed them was because I attempted to condense my already full memory card and went into the main menu. There I went to the "format memory card" page and pressed OK. I was unaware that formatting the memory card meant that all of my photos woul

Cannon SD1100 IS Digital Camera The Camera reads " Card Locked". The Maual's solution is to slide the switch up on the memory card. Did that still won't work. When I go to the Menu, the cursor will just bypass the "erase" and will light up below the erase display. Have never had this happen. I was trying to erase a movie, and this locked up. Tried another "card" the camera still reads "card locked". It has to be something in the camera. Thanks for your help.


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Other causes include problems with ... Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Camera

I have a Pentax *ist DL2 camera, which I bought second hand on ebay, but from a very lovely, recommended seller, so he wasn't having me on. But recently, every button I press seems to set the shutter off and it makes the clinking sound as if your taking a photo. However no photo is taken and the LCD screen is constantly **** on, although not showing any preview or menu. Also, nothing is showing out of the eye-piece so I can take any photos or do anything without the shutter going off when a butt
