I can get them onto the computer but cannot open them.....However, about 50 of them do open and I can see those but that batch of ok pictures are in the middle of the ones taken....weird!!!!
If I go into 'MY PICTURES, I get 900 logos with file numbers underneath. I can open about 50 of them in the middle of the batch. They are fine. Its the other 800 odd that I need to see.
My husband had just had very major heart surgery followed by a cancer operation and he is 77. This is /was our last holiday together to the Norwegian Fiords. It is such a disappointment not to be able to see the photos.
Have I explained the situation better? I am not an expert so it isnt easy.
Hi.....the memory card is still with the shop where i took it for them to try to solve this. When they showed me what they had it was the pictures that I have mentioned. The ones that I have on my computer are all the same logo they are DSCF files and the logo is a mountain,blue skies and a lake.....Any help??? I am waiting to hear more from the shop
I cant open ANY photos now...they are all just logos and no action...I could open the 50 before!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAGH
It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thanks for your patience,
Hi......sorry just picked up your message............tries Paint but it said
'Not a valid bitmap or its format is unsupported'
I wonder [because I have 'Vista' ], whether i get the memory card back and try it in another computer....my husband has Windows XP. Maybe it has different means of opening pictures in this format. I will pick it up from the shop tomorrow.
Is there any software, for example, that would be able to sort this out.
I am very sorry to hear about the loss of your precious photos.
You mentioned that the camera shop also can't open those pictures so it seems that something has been corrupted on the memory card itself.
There are a few programmes that you can try out. I have listed the best free and paid for with try before you buy.
The free one is here or here
The paid one is here or here
Unfortunately nothing is 100% guaranteed as vital parts of the image files on the memory card may be destroyed.
A caveat is to insert the card into your computer once the software is installed. That is to make sure that nothing is written to your card by mistake which will make things worse. I recommend that you install one & try it out. I recommend that you try the free ones first. Please make sure that you install one and then if it doesn't work, uninstall it and try the next. This is to make sure that you don't have more than one recovery programme working at once.
Hi...if I use a recovery programme, is there a chance that it will damage card further??
Also, I seem to have the files on my computer but cannot open them SOOOOOOOOO would a recovery programme open these......it would save messing about with the card itself and I could put them on a disc or print them off
