Lost data on Sony prostick

  Dirty Dick 22:03 02 Dec 2009

I have a Sony Cyber Shot Digital Camera, which uses a memory card. I have just returned from holiday, with (what I thought) was lots of photos. When I view the photos on the camera it shows a "File Error", and many photos are not there.although some are !

I did view the missing photos on the camera shortly after taking them.

Is there any FREE software to recover (if possible) the "missing" photos?

Yes, this is a direct download of a great little program which should recover your pics ...

a good program to keep for future use.

Many thanx

Cracking little programme.

HOWEVER, on the card are a couple of videos, think MPG's, but it didn't recover them

Any ideas how to reover the videos?

Set the option to look for Video

When I look further there is a section for recovering Files (not just images)

All Mpeg's & jpeg's rescued
