Lost pics I had over 400 pics on a 512 card and some video. Was looking at them one night on the "quick view" menu. Took more pics the next day no probs. Later same day, put memory card in tower to look at on pc and it said folder was empty. So put card back in camera and no pics! I have not formatted or erased anything but pics have disappeared.

Turned on camera and all pics from memory card were erased. The number 670 still shows up in the right corner of the camer when I turn it on. When I take a picture, it says 1. Pictures and camera seem to be working fine. I took the memory card to CVS and pics are not there. I don't have a clue what happened to the pics I had on the memory card but I hope I can somehow retrieve them. Thanks

Pictures Lost??? We have a large number of pics on our 1GB memory card in our camera. However after unsuccessfully trying to transfer images onto file via the olympus master software, the pictures cannot be viewed on the camera. They don't seem to be erased, as only 10 pictures can still be taken on the memory card (in HQ format). If they were erased there'd be more space available? These pictures are very valuable but I cannot work out where they have gone to. I haven't pressed the Erase All bu

Hi, I have a canon sx200 and yesterday I took my memory card - Kingston 8GB - and got some pics printed at one of those albertsons machines and since then when I try to take a picture it says " card locked" on the screen and it won't work (it won't let me erase the pic either...) how can I fix it? Did the machine do it to my card? (I have used teh same machine before and never had this happen) Thank you, Bianca

Retrieving file With my Panasonic Lumix TZ3 and a panasonic SD card (new) I took about 200 pictures (7mp resolution). The last 100 or so, yield the response "no preview available" even though the computer (and Photoshop) indicates that they are about 3mb each. In the middle of this group of pics, one file opens successfully. Unfortunately when PS downloaded the pics I also had it erase them from the SD card. Is there anything I can do or freeware that can be downloaded that I can use to attempt

Help, I took about 80 pictures on my olympus sp-350 camera, an xd card was in it. Took my camera out the following night and half way through it seemed as if the camera switched to taking pics on the card/ internal memory (not sure which!) because I could only view the last ones taken and not those before. I have been onto photo rescue and that only recovered the ones that were on the card. I pray to God I haven't erased them they were taken on a special holiday in fRANCE! PLEASE help

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.

Retrieving files pictures that were recently stored on the micro sd card cannot be viewed anymore. We do not remember deleting the pics manually. Question: Are there other ways of deleting pictures from the cam aside from doing it manually? If the pics were accidentally deleted, how can we retrieve them?

Hi, I have been reliably informed that I can copy the pix from my LS743 internal memory to my memory card in order to view them via my pc. The guy in the camera shop told me that when I put the card back in my camera I would get a prompt as to whether I wanted to copy the pics over. Of course, I have no prompt... Can you help please? I have looked through the menus but apart from formatting option for internal memory or memory card there seems to be no mention of either! Thanks very much for any

My 3935 keeps erasing memory cards. All of the sudden, you get a white screen and the camera won't function until you remove the card. This has happened twice; both were Kodak 128 SD. The first time, it had 60 pics. Six months later, the same thing happened. Any ideas on why this has happened?
