I am having major problems with a SDHC 4GB memory card.
I have a Panasonic FS4. I am away on holiday and wanted to upload my photos for safekeeping. I uploaded some to Facebook Ok to begin with. However, all of a sudden when plugging in my camera to the computer no photos are showing up even though there is over 500 on my camera. I have tried to use a card reader but it shows no photos. I have tried downloading the photos to a memory stick and a dvd. These don´t work either.
I have taken it into a camera shop. They at first said it was bad memory but I took a photo and the photo was there in the memory. The camera reads the photos fine. They are all there on the camera but nothing else seems to read it. The camera shop were puzzled and didn´t have a clue.
Can you help me please as I don´t want to lose all my holiday photos.
Okay... I went looking online because I had the same problem. I couldn't find anything that was solving my problem. Then I stumbled onto a solution on my own. We have Adobe and I noticed that when I right clicked the drive that came up as my SD card, it gave me some options. That option was "Combine supported files in Acrobat..." So I chose this and a box called "Combine Files" appeared and in the box, low and behold, there were all of my pictures, all 403 of them. I then clicked on "Add Folders" in the upper left drop down, created a folder, and changed it back to "Add Files." Then I clicked on "Combine Files" and the program sent all of the photos into a single pdf file. I then went into the pdf file's File Menu>Export>Image>JPEG>Save As. It then shot all 403 pics out as jpegs. It worked!
Obviousely, this will not work if you don't have Adobe, but I bet you know somebody that does. This will work and it will save your important pics. I hope this helped!
If the Icon appears on your desktop have you tried image recovery software.
Unfortunately I am mac so use Mac recall but Lexar for instance have Image rescue.
As a professional photographer I have had the images on the camera but an empty card when I put it in. I then run the recover and they all come back.
Having said that if you get the images back ditch the card after.
One failing of a card is enough to warn you.
