Have you tried plugging your SD card into a SD Card Reader. The files may still be there, just that for some odd reason, your Canon S3 IS does not display them.

Whatever it is, don't PANIC.

DO NOT attempt to take any pictures with that card.

DO NOT in any way, format the SD card.

Your pictures should still be safe in the card, don't worry.

coz it seems like my earlier mentioned symptoms. However, I always do a format when I insert it into my cam. Try using a card reader first. It might help. Else you might need a file recovery software.

I encountered similar problem when i was having my backpacking trip in Taiwan. The images just refused to appear in camera's LCD or in computer. I've downloaded a recovery software recommened by 1 of the CSer and bought a card reader.

After installing the programme and load thru the reader, I managed to retrive all the images from the SD card.

Go to Convergence and ask them to help you retrieve the pics. They will make you sign a form to absolve them of any responsibilities if anything should go wrong. I signed such a form ,and they did managed to retrieve my pics.

Moral of story: Be careful with Kingston cards

Kudos to Convergence though, their service were excellent.

Steady! steady. Use PCinspector to retrieve ur images(A CS bro already told u liao). 1st, check whether ur card is really full or not, using a card reader. If it's full, then u're quite safe liao.

Go download pcinspector, Smart recovery 4.5, HTTP download. I think it's a freeware.
http://www.pcinspector.de/download.asp?language=1#file_recovery

I've use it and recovered 900+ photos on my Microdrives. Another CS folks also successfully recovered his formatted pics on a 1GB Kingston SD card.

Try it, it's a free and amazing software. :thumbsup:

pc inspector takes a long time to run. it's only 44% done. ;arge amt of sector files and sectpr count, but found files = 0 and read errors = 0 ...

convergent couldn't detect my SD card as hard drive, but i can at home. i didn't bring my card reader w me... their card readers couldn't detect it...

Hmmm..... the found files shld hv some number by the time you start. And yes it's slow but it helps me to recover all my images.

I guess all the images are jpg files is it? Did you set to the jpg mode?

Does ur card reader memory reads full in ur card reader on ur computer?
