I was on a vacation recently and captured some great photos. While browsing through the pictures, I think I accidentally clicked the ‘Delete All’ button. Now when I connected the camera to my laptop, all my photos are gone, the folder is empty. I hadn’t even got a chance to back up these photos. How to get back lost photos from the digital camera? Is there a way to perform digicam photo recovery in this case?

This is one of the most common instances that causes the loss of photos from SD cards on digital cameras. Many users also struggle with the loss of photos from cameras due to corruption or might have formatted the memory card. In some other cases, users have formatted the SD card as the file system has turned RAW because of an improper ejection, virus infection, low battery issues, etc. Thus, data loss in digital cameras has become difficult to avoid because of so many reasons involved. In such situations, not having a backup increases the disappointment tenfold.

Why Won't My Camera Read My SD Card?

Generally, when a camera SD card is corrupted it becomes inaccessible or unreadable. Typically this is one of the major reasons why a memory card is unreadable either on camera or computer. However, in some situations, few overlooked aspects such as dirty contact pins or, damaged adapter or card readers can also be the reasons behind “Why a Camera cannot read your SD card”.

"Note: Once remove the SD card from the adapter or card reader and directly connect it to the computer and check adapter functionality. Or test the SD card in another computer or card reader. If the reader is not working properly, switch it with a working card reader."

When a user realizes that a camera SD card is damaged, without any precautions user will try to troubleshoot the error and try to fix it. Doing so mostly results in erasing the camera memory card and result in major data loss.

Hence, it is always recommended to first recover data from the SD card and then fix the corruption.

NOTE: Stop using the camera immediately and also do not save any new data on the camera SD card. Otherwise, the old photo space will be overwritten with new data and will reduce the chances of recovery. You have to take this measure to ensure a successful camera memory card photo recovery.
