Anyone got any clues out there.....when the SD card is in the camera the screen says full (which I understand to be correct as I filled the SD card with shots). When I view on the camera it says "no files exist"
On the PC the folder shows as empty and no images.
Any ideas for free software download to recover the files. One minute they were there, next they were gone

Zero Assumption Recovery (ZAR), was a freebie that I've used often (laptop crashes!) and found allsorts I'd forgotten about as well as a few treasures that I thought were gone forever
Is it a trusted software or would I be better taking it into the likes of Jessops or N.E Other photo shop?
Bit of a strange one Mike. You could right click the folder on the pc and click on properties. This will tell you how many files are actually in it.
Have a Google for "Recuva" from piriform. (No, they don't do anti-allergy products before you ask! ) That's a great freebie for recovering files from cards.
I'd probably try that, or ZAR mentioned above, see what you can retrieve from the card, if anything, then format it in camera and start again.
Has the card been used in anything else? Always a good idea to format a card in the device it will be used in when you want to clear it of its contents.
Hope that helps.
I've been safe enough with it as far as I know, scan scan and scan again before installing. (My crashes were motherboard and drive, well known with the particular HP job I had, no problems with the Toshiba.) There were a few recommendations on some older threads, I'll see if I can find 'em
Thanks for all your help folks...got image recall 5 and they're all there and soon to be recovered
Recuva and ZAR are nice. you can also use Card Data Recovery. but you have to pay $19.95 to get it. however, it is professional photo recovery program.
