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.

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

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

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.

Lost pictures???? On vacation I took my pics on the Large setting(not sure why). As the weeks went on I was running out of room on my 512 card so I changed the setting to medium size. I took pics on medium for the last 3 days only. When getting home and flipping through the pics only the pics shot on medium are showing up. I have tried using the card reader also...no large pics!

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

Nikon COOLPIX S710 stops working after battery and/or memory card are removed. I have reformed the memory card (no change). Purchased 2X new batteries (no change). One of the original batteries will allow the camera to work, directly after a fresh charge, but not after it is removed, unless directly after insertion from being freshly charged. Have checked all 4 different batteries and voltages all appear at of above specified 3.7 VDC. Still only one of the 4 will ever allow the camera to functio


A voltage test alone cannot determine if the battery is good unless you can have the current rating of the battery tested. So if the camera comes on after a charge it seems that the battery is not retaining current for the camera to boot on.\01 ... Nikon COOLPIX S710 Digital Camera

I have about 24 pictures on my XD card and I was trying to .rar them in one file on my PC but it was not working and so I ejected the XD card from the PC reader slot. When I put the XD card back in my camera, the message came up 'card needs to be initialized' (or similar words). I notice that to Initialize, it would erase all the files on the card which I do not want to do. Obviously, something has affected the formatting of the XD card whilst I was trying to zip the pictures. Is there some S/W

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

When I put the memory card in the camera it says 'cannot read' it. How do I format the card? I know it has the right 'size' memory. The memory card I am using is the same one I used a few months ago and I saved the pictures I took to a computer and erased the pictures off the card. Now as soon as I turn the camera on it says 'This card cannot be read'. Im frustrated as there is nothing in the manual that seems to get my camera working again. I have only had it for a year. Please HELP!
