Having problems with your Samsung L100 Digital Camera ?

Reset the format & reset function on my camera, and now I can't see any of my pictures or videos on my memory card?? Please help me retrieve. It did not ask to delete anything.


Answers :

I'm afraid that formatting a memory card deletes everything on it. You may however be able to recover the files.

First take the memory card out of the camera. Pictures that have been deleted are probably still there, but will be overwritten if you take any more pictures on top of them.

Your camera is not able to undelete pictures, but there are programs for doing this on a computer. You can put the memory card into a card reader attached to a computer, and use an undelete program to recover the deleted files. Undelete programs are available for free download from the internet, try at www.download.com. Not all of these programs work with memory cards, and not all of them can recover files from "drives" that have been formatted. You will have to search a bit to find the right one.

If the pictures are very important to you, you might want to seek help from an experienced person.

Memory Twice now the entire library of pictures we saved completely erased. We're not sure how they're erasing... we must have accidently pressed a button that deleted them but how can it be that it's so easy to erase ALL the pictures? I feel like there should atleast be a prompt that asks "delete all pictures? yes or no" like there is with text messages and emails or anything else. Is there a way to get our pictures back? Is there a back up memory??
