Having problems with your Olympus Stylus 720 SW Digital Camera ?

Lost pictures I had pictures in my camera that were very special to me. I believe when deleting some photos from my camera, I accidentally deleted them all. I have no idea whatsoever how to recover them either. I had taken some other pictures and kept them on my camera so far, but really would love to be able to get the lost ones back. This occured on January 1st. Is there anyway to get them back? Please help!!!


Answers :

The previous advice is nonsense! The only data which cannot be recovered is from cards which have been physically damaged in such a way that the card cannot work or data which has since been fully overwritten by new data.

xD cards used to be the only format which could not be recovered by commercially available software as the technical encoding specifications were a trade secret. This is no longer a problem as many data recovery packages can deal with them. I use an old copy of DataRecovery Pro which has never let me down, but the new version of this and other software can deal with xD cards even if you've reformatted them. the old version still recovers xD card data, but cannot actually make any sense of it so the pictures remain unavailable without a software upgrade.
I am so sorry but there is no way to get these back! unlike a computer hard drive a mempry card loses the picture when deleated.Again I am sorry!

Hello, I have been given a very old model of this camera for use in a workshop with street children. The screen is out of focus and all the pictures come out blurry. When I look at the screen without any pictures on it looks like grainy like it is a really bad resolution. Is the camera just too old? It also gives off smoke when the flash goes off! If possible could you get back to me asap. Many thanks, Kate

When i turn my camera on, it seems fine, all buttons functional. When i take a photo, it flashes, but no photo will pop up in my screen.

Button-be-dead Ok, so this might sound kind of stupid but my camera was in my purse and I didn't drop it or anything, but when I went to take it out to take pictures, the button you push to take the picture was already half down so it won't stop auto-focusing. I can't zoom in or out, look through my pictures, turn the flash off, delete pictures, or change picture styles. I know it's because of the button already being down halfway but I really need to know how to fix it and get the button back
