First do not panic! It is possible to recover your pictures if you take care. Take the card from the camera (powered off) and if it has a "write protect" tab then lock it now. Do not try and write anything to the card or you risk causing more problems.

You can either plug in you camera to the PC as it should appear as a “Removable Drive” or put the card in a card reader attached to your PC.

Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a FREE utility that will recover your photos from the following link:


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


You can try the demo to see what you can recover before buying.

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to the card until you can recover your pictures to your PC safely!

I have a ixus 700. I was trying to make more space for pics and I went to format and checked "low level format" and clicked ok. Afterwards I couldn't find my pics. Were they saved somewhere or did i lose them.

Downloading Pics I'm having the same problem...all of my pics downloaded just fine the first time. Now when I try downloading I keep getting "No camera found" error box even though I know it's there.

Card setup When I turn on the camera, it goes straight into "Card Setup". My only options are to "Format" (i.e. erase the memory card) or "Power Off".

Likewise, the PC won't detect the camera attached via USB port. What can I do? I don't want to lose all my pics.

Hey. I bought a new camera some days ago with a new Digix 4gb SDHC memory card. I went to Disney World and took normally a lot of pictures. From one moment to another, the camera gives me the message "Memory card error" and won't let me take nor view pictures. I tried removing the memory card and everything. I checked and It isn't locked or something. Also, I tried using a memory card reader on my laptop, and it says I have to format to read the card. I REALLY don't want to lose the pic

The first thing that may be complicating things is, can your laptop read SDHC cards, or just SD cards? If the laptop is asking you to format it, then probably it's working, but be really sure, before you continue.Check the co ... Digital Cameras
