I have a cannon digital camera and had tons of pics of my sonI noticed that some had a question mark in there place and weremissing when I viewed them .so stupid me not knowing anything changedthe format on the camera! and wiped out everything...any way ofretrieving these photos from the card ? or are they totally erased????.
I assume you mean that when you reformatted the card you lost the pictures. I don't understand why there was a question mark. It sounds like something was not set right in your camera or the card was bad..
If you did not take any more pictures after reformatting you may be able to recover them. Someone else will have to tell you how..
FINE PRINT: I reserve the right to be wrong. Should you prove me wrong, I reserve the right to change my mind...
Recovery programs (you will need to use a card reader).
I see the answer burn in your eyes, across the wasteland,Death into Life..
I've personally used the PC Inspector Smart Recovery - it works *very* well, you should recover a good 90% of the photos. It's SLOW, but it works, and it's free ..
Image recovery programmes work well but are by nature slow. To give them the greatest chance to recover your photos DO NOT use that card again until you have attempted to recover them..
Also, given that there was a question mark when you tried to view your photos and that this is not normal, bear in mind there is a possibility that the photos had "disappeared" or been corrupted PRIOR to your reformatting the card and that image recovery may not work..
I would highly recommend contacting "Expert Photo Recovery".... they saved my life!! Well not really, but they did some fantastic "broken heart surgury". The web site is at:.
Good luck, if you go with them, tell them mmayer13 sent you there!!.
