Hi Nicole, If you haven?t messed with or tried to save new pictures on the camera since you deleted the Xmas ones then there may be hope. If you take the card to a camera shop that deals with digital cameras they can probably help you. There is a good case for doing the job yourself (and saving money); however, if the pictures are worth a lot to you it may be better to pay an expert to deal with it assuming you can find someone who knows what they are doing. If you?re feeling adventuresome here is one software program that allows you to do a test before buying. http://www.diskinternals.com/products/deleted-data-recovery/ It will show you what it can recover but if you want to get the images you have to pay $40 to activate the software. I?ve used this before and it worked for me but be aware there are lots of other programs, some free. Here are a couple of free ones that I have never personally used but are rated fairly well: http://www.z-a-recovery.com/digital-image-recovery.htm http://www.pcinspector.de/file_recovery/uk/welcome.htm Let us know how it goes and don?t forget to rate the posting.

Well, before you format your card, try using a digital camera data recovery software to see if you can retrieve some of your photos. Here shows a list of good ones (for PC/Mac) http://www.digital-camera-recovery.com/

Good luck!

Do NOT for any reason use the camera again to take pictures. If it has an internal memory, take it out and, if you need to use the camera, replace it with another compatible one.

Now if you can either mount the camera as USB disk, or you can extract the memory (SD card, stick, etc.) and plug it in the appropriate reader to see it as a disk drive, then you can run RECUVA (from Piriform) and you should be able to recover most of your images, unless:

1) Other data have been written on the memory (that's why I told you not to use the camera)
2) The memory card has been "securely deleted", something I think nobody therearound would do or even know how to do
3) The original, full memory card inside has been taken out and swapped with another (it happened to me once. My Canon and my Palm have compatible SD cards. I inadvertently swapped them). So your data are safe and sound -- maybe in a drawer somewhere :-)

Yes, it is possible to recover deleted pictures from digital camera. Take a look at this digital camera picture recovery guide that helped me last time.

If you haven't done anything with the card since then, you may be able to recover at least some of the pictures. Do a Google search for "data recovery software" and select a program for your computer and operating system. Put the card back into the card reader, cross your fingers, and run the program.

Next time, don't scan and fix. Personally, I always slide the lock on the card to the write-protect position before putting it into my card reader. Not only does it prevent the "scan" dialog from popping up, it keeps the computer from putting the recycle bin and other garbage onto the card.

Don't despair Rachel,

that is an easy fix; although I do not quite understand your question.
Your photos are safe as long as they are in your camera's memory.
If your PC hard drive in your pc is still ok, that data can be easily recovered as well.
But if your computer does not work, then you cannot download or upload anything until you get it going again.
So, what disk are you talking about you have not got ?

Please remove the card off from the camera and have it checked into your PC card reader... or into one in your friends laptop. On scanning you can see the files and also if any errors ( virus) has come into the memory card. If so copy off all the files and format the card.
However if the card is not read then it can be faulty, good to approach the computer service to try for recovery of the important data that is inside without trying any harsh moves.

Yes. Do not try and do anything with the card in the camera. Remove it.
You need to connect the card to a USB card reader, and connect that to your computer.
You need a file recovery software. There are a heap of them and most want to sell them to you, You might bea ble to find a free one with enough searching.
I have used PhotoRescuePro and it is very good. It recovered data from a card that a faulty camera corrupted.
Do a google on
file recovery memory card
And you will find amy answers.

Hello

My apologies if this message finds you long after posting this problem , but I am currently working through a backlog of problems that never got answered and hopefully this info can still be of use if not now possibly in future.

Please download Disc Digger HERE. This is a free tool you can use that works very well and there is no installation required, just run the program once you downloaded it.

Once you have connected the memory card to the computer via either the camera or preferably with a usb card reader , run the program.

On the program , select the dig deep option for accidentaly deleted files or dig deeper for a formatted card. Then select the card you want to do the recovery on and run the program.

The data will be displayed and you can recover it from there. This will only work if the card has not been used since the pictures were lost. Save the files to a location on the computer hard drive and not back to the memory card as this will overwrite the other pictures that still needs to be recovered.

Some of the properties of the files may become lost in the recovery but the pictures should be fine.

Feel free to ask if you need more assistance.

Kind Regards
Andrea

when you format you camra you can not retrive the picture you lost, you best way is to but a SD card from your local wal-mart and save you pictures on that in stead of you camras hard drive.

Samsung Digimax... | Answered on May 27, 2019


If you have only deleted the photos and have not taken additional photos or used the card in any way is is very likely they can be restored,

First lock away the SD card until we are ready. Find another and after saving some test images delete the images on the test SD card.

Pandora Recovery has saved my bacon and was a breeze to use.
Next step download and practice several times with your test SD until you are confident.

Next open the lock and after your are done just be happy!!

Hope this helps?

Hi,
I'm going to assume you have accidentally deleted the pictures.
There are several applications that can recover deleted images from memory cards.
The best free one I've found so far is: Pandora Recovery.
Download here: http://www.pandorarecovery.com/download/

Once you have it installed what you want do do is:
1) Insert your memory card in your computer / memory card reader
2) Start "Pandora Recovery"
3) Click "Surface Scan"
4) Where it says "Scan this disc drive" you select your memory card.
5) Click "Start Disk Surface Scan"
6) Let the scan finnish. (This can take some time depending on the size of your memory card.)
7) In the right pane you are now going to see everything "Pandora Recovery" could find on your memory card.
8) Select all or the images you want to restore.
9) Right click the selected files and click "Recover to"
10) Specify where you want to put the files.
11) Click "Recover now".

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions along the road.

Try photo recovery software to rescue the lost picture, here are some you may rely on. Photo Recovery Software (for Windows)
Mac Photo Recovery Software (for Mac OS X)

Be careful: Before your picture isrecovered, do not attempt to save more files to the memory card in case the original files(your picture) are overwritten.

Typically when a mobile device is locked, it wants the original e-mail account name and password it was setup with. You shouldn't need internet connectivity to unlock the phone. If you can log into your account at https://mail.google.com/ that's good, but it doesn't guarantee it's the same account the device is using or the original password used. In some cases, if the device can receive a call, you can access the menu during the call and disable the screen lock. If you don't remember the username and the account was properly setup at creation time, you can recover the name using "I forgot my username" here: http://support.google.com/mail/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=46346 And here's a trick to recover an account name on an Android device: https://productforums.google.com/d/topic/gmail/ydNElvUjJVU/discussion If you have the username, the following will help with the process to recover the account by resetting the password: http://gmailaccountrecovery.blogspot.com/ BUT... A recovered account or changed password won't have the original password which is what the device needs to be unlocked. In that case the device will probably need to have a factory reset done (read the owner's manual for instructions) and then setup again with an e-mail account (be sure to write the information down this time). If it's setup with the recovered e-mail account, any purchased apps and synced data should be restored. If a new account needs to be created, all previous information will be lost.

If the pictures were on a memory card and you haven't done anything with the card since formatting it then you may be able to recover at least some of the pictures. Do a Google search for "data recovery software" and select a program for your computer and operating system. Put the memory card into a card reader attached to your computer and run the program.

Samsung Digimax... | Answered on May 22, 2019


I have had success with this... Download the program
http://www.asoftech.com/apr/

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

You need to use a card reader either one already in your computer (some have one, some don't). Or buy an external USB card reader. They are around $2 on Amazon.

The problem with built in card readers is that they will usually only read up to a 2G card.

I was not able to recover photos by hooking the camera up to the pc with the usb cord, it just won't work.
