I see a "Card Error", “Read Error” (or similar) message on my camera. What does this mean? Are my photos lost? How can I get them back?


Immediately stop using that card. If you keep taking photos with it, there is a chance a new image will be recorded on top of the deleted image. There are a number of card recovery programs that will allow you to scan your card and recover the images. Your card may have come with software suggestions.
