Having problems with your Olympus SP-550 UZ Digital Camera ?

Photos stored in one photo file. How do I extract them?

\015 Olympus XD card 2GB, Olympus SP-550UZ camera. Lost all photos on XD card. Tried to transfer from camera to laptop via USB. Downloaded CardRecovery which found 275 photos. Problem - photo no 275 is 1,714,368KB in size, obviously these are the rest of my photos. How do I extract them? Please help. Margie\015

Answers :

Recovering xD data is always tricky as the specifications have never been publicly available, it's only during the last couple of years that reverse-engineering has produced software able to do so.

I've found that there are plenty of recovery tools which can recover the raw data but very few which can actually make sense of it. I'd suggest that you first see if there's a money back option on CardRecovery and then try a free trial of Acute Tools PhotoNose ( http://www.acutetools.com/photonose/xd-card-recovery.aspx ). I haven't had the chance to try it for myself yet but I've heard from a couple of friends that it does work. F Recovery xD has also been recommended to me but again I have yet to try it for myself. ( http://www.filerecoverytools.com/products/fr_xd-picture/ )

What is certain at the present time is that there are no reliable free xD recovery tools, so whatever else you buy ensure that it either has a free trial or a money back option.

Camera: Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7 Resolution: 10,100,000 pixels I am selling my camper van on the web. I have taken photos of it with the above camera.

Some of the files that have been stored onto my SD from the camera are screwey. For example, some photos and videos are able to be seen while others say this file isn't supported on the camera when editing or when on the pc, it says something about not having the correct graphics converter. After reseting my camera to factor setting, this problem disappeared but I still can't upload those particular videos/pics onto my pc
