HELP!!!

Post by Mike Rochford » March 14th, 2011, 1:04 pm

CAMERA JUNKIES: ADVICE NEEDED!!! I viewed some pics I took last night on my camera this morning. I then removed the SD card from my camera and put them into the card reader on my computer and now the pics don't show up there or when I tried again with the card in camera. All other pics on the card still show up. The ones I took last night are gone. Is there any way to get them back or are they gone forever?

The camera is a Nikon D80 if that helps. Got nearly full-frame shots of a bobcat last night and would like the pics back! They weren't amazing but I can't imagine ever pulling that off again.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Mike

Mike,

There's is software that'll recover "lost" images on a memory card. Do a Google search, and let me know if you can't turn it up. I'll give you the software name if that's the case, but you'll have to check to see if it works with your memory card.

I remember the first time I saw a wild bobcat... I said to Marty Whalin aka MVH I hate it when stupid people let their cats run loose... He said that's not a cat, err well it is but it's (pregnant pause) and I said that cat doesn't have a tail. We look at each other in joy, but no pictures were taken. Glad you got that picture back, now get a camera that uses compact flash it's less volatile.
