Format function executed

\015 After performing format function and executing it, I can't find any more saved pictures. Is there any way to restore the pictures previously saved? Your help will be greatly appreciated.\015

Answers :

Yes, there are ways for you to retrieve your lost photos back from a camera memory card as long as these photos are not overwritten by anything new on it.
\012 What you should do is really simple:
\012 Firstly, stop using this camera memory card immediately in case that any new file would overwrite your original photos and make them gone permanently. So, you should take care!
\012 Secondly, plunge this phone to your computer and prepare to retrieve all your deleted pictures.
\012 Thirdly, apply a photo recovery freeware to retrieve all your lost photos back successfully:
\012 http://sd-card-format-recovery.blogspot.com/2013/11/recover-sd-card-after-formatting.html
\012 I believe this data recovery freeware can work perfectly on your phone memory card just in the same way as it completely retrieves all the deleted data of my friend off from his phone memory card.
\012 Just give it a shot here: http://www.4cardrecovery.com/
\012 Fourthly, save and back up all the restored photos on a different memory card or drive in case of data recovery failure.
\012 Note: Never forget to back up everything important at least on two memory cards or locations in the future.
\012 Good luck!
Have you restored anything new on this\012camera after the formatting process?
\012\012In fact, nowadays, the deleted files on a camera\012are not actually destroyed immediately after the formatting process. They are\012still there and become invisible. So, act carefully to get these deleted files\012back:
\012\0121. Stop using this camera before you are\012ready to restore your inaccessible files.
\012\0122. Plunge this camera to your computer.
\012\0123. Download a camera memory card data recovery freeware to retrieve all your\012lost files back.
\012\012This professional data recovery freeware\012has helped many people around me restore their inaccessible data off from a\012phone/camera memory card or hard drive. It could be a good choice for you to go\012on.
\012\012Try to read more detailed information of\012this camera data recovery freeware here:

\012\0124. Do not save or back up all the restored\012data on the same memory card in case of any data recovery failure.
\012\012Next time, you should always be careful to\012your important data and remember to back it up well in case of similar data\012recovery problems.

Polaroid Model a815 just bought yesterday: I took pictures with it and turned it off to get another item to photograph. When I turned it back on I got "Card Error" then a screen to Format Card: Cancel/Execute. I could not move to hit the cancel. It would only take Execute. It sat there "Busy" until it timed out. When I turned it back on I was back to the Card Error. I removed the Card and tried a different one. None of the buttons would work, but I still had the Format Screen showing. According

I purchased a Kingston 2G SD card for my Canon A530. It says "memory card error". In fact, the function to format the card does not even light up but is dimmed and skips to the next function. My 128mb works just fine. Any suggestions? thank you!

The card is obviously too large, in memory capacity terms, for the camera. In fact, it might not be an SD card, but an SDHC card. "SD" cards larger than about 2GB are actually SDHC cards. I'm not sure about the 2GB ones, maybe there are some of each ... Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera
