Answers :

First do not panic! It is possible to\015\012recover your pictures if you take care. Take the card from the camera (powered\015\012off) and if it has a "write protect" tab then lock it now. Do not try\015\012and write anything to the card or you risk causing more problems.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012You can either plug in you camera to the PC\015\012as it should appear as a “Removable\015\012 Drive” or put the card in a card reader attached\015\012to your PC.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012Next, if you are comfortable with using a\015\012PC then you can download a FREE utility that will recover your photos from the\015\012following link:

\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012If you need something a little more\015\012"user friendly" then you will need to buy the software. If you search\015\012the web for photo recovery software you will find many.
\015\012\015\012One I have used successfully is RescuePro\015\012that used to be bundled with some Sandisk products. Now you can get it from the\015\012link below:

\015\012\015\012You can try the demo to see what you can\015\012recover before buying.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012Remember - Do NOT try & write anything\015\012back to the card until you can recover your pictures to your PC safely!

I have a Kodak Z740 camera with a total lost instruction booklet. I need a new instruction book if possible. An easy answer from you "Experts" might be if you can answer this: I have 24 pictures saved on our camera, but somehow we lost to place a memory card in the camera. We can "review" the camera and see all the pictures still there.

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

I have a Sanyo VPC-E760 digital camera that I bought used from a friend. Yesterday, I stupidly forgot to put the memory card back in the camera before I left for my son's first field trip. Now I have 12 pictures on the internal memory and cannot figure out how to get them onto my card-which is now back in the camera. I think I still have the old cords from my Kodak Easy Share camera that I lost, but I don't want to try them if that won't work. On my old Kodak, there was a setting where I could t

I have a Lumix DMC-FS3 camera and if I don't put a memory card in it, I can't take any pictures because it says "built-in memory is full". When I tried to delete any photos that maybe on the internal memory, it just says "no valid picture to play". I even installed a memory card and tried to copy from the internal memory to the memory card, but it said that there's nothing to copy. When I plug the camera into my computer, I can playback pictures. So I'm very confused as to what is on my internal

I just got a second hand bought Kodak EasyShare C913 camera. After I got it I took only 7 pictures, after that it wouldn't let me take any others because it would say 'internal memory is full.' I just bought an 8gb memory card and I'm pretty sure I programed it so the camera reads that it's memory goes on the card and such. But it still says the memory is full and I'm not sure why. I don't know much on cameras I just want to use it for pictures and then to upload them onto my computer. Please he


The C913 is designed to work with SD cards. Your 8GB card is actually an SDHC card. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they will not work. You need to use SD cards 2GB and smaller. ... Digital Cameras

When I put my memory card in my camera it says Err Cf and won't let me take pictures and won't show any of my previous pictures on the card on the screen on the camera. When I put the cf card in my card reader and plug it into my computer, nothing happens. The computer doesn't register the card at all and I tried putting a different memory card in the reader and it worked so it definitely isn't the card reader that is the problem. I don't care if the card is broken but I have a bunch of picture
