I really need some help!
I had taken a ton of photos with a digital camera on vacation. However, as trying to upload these photos to my computer, I had encountered a really strange problem. Every time I tried to open this camera memory card on my computer, a message would ask me to format it firstly. But, the formatting action will erase all my photos, right? How can I upload my photos without formatting at first? Any idea?
Thanks a lot!

1). Do not format this memory card in case that the formatting process would make everything worse.

2). Do not save anything new on this memory card in case that any new file rewrites your original photos.

3). Insert this memory card to your computer via a card Reader.

4). Apply a photo recovery freeware :

This data recovery freeware can easily restore all your wanted photos back from this unformatted memory card successfully just in the same way as it completely restores all the data of my friend off from his inaccessible camera.

Here is some detailed information of this freeware:

5). Do not save the restored data on the same memory card in case of any data recovery failure.

Note: I hope you can get accustomed to back all important data up on different drives or cards all the time.

To update an existing image, for example an infographic with out of date information, go to that image file description page and find the link that says "upload a new version of this file", which opens a wizard to upload the new version. For more details, please refer to:

Thank you for your detailed steps, 0017Alfred1 .
I am really a computer noob and really know a little about the data recovery things. But, after reading your answer, I have learned and tried your listed photo recovery freeware. It works so well that has finally restored the most part of my original data back.
Thank you very much!
I will follow your advice and learn to back up everything important well in the future.
Thanks a lot!!!!

Hi,

First dump all your camera memory card'pics on your PC. and try to upload your pics from PC.

Then it will not ask for you to format.

and one more thing, have not you formatted your camera memory card ever before?

Have you formatted this camera memory card yet?
Don’t worry! As long as these files have not been overwritten by anything new on the same card, you do have chances to get all your data back:
Step1 . Stop using this camera card in case that any new file would rewrite your original data.
Step2 . Insert this camera card to your computer.
Step3 . Download an unformatted memory card recovery freeware to your computer and start to retrieve all your lost data back:
http://www.4cardrecovery.com/unformat.html
This recovery freeware has especially offered a “Photo” recovery type for everyone to deal with different photo recovery problems. I believe it will also recover your data back with ease.
So, if you are interested, you can download it here:
http://www.4cardrecovery.com/
Step4 . Save and back up all the restored data on a different memory card or drive in case of data recovery failure.
Step5 . Format this card and see whether it can work functionally as before.
PS : In case of similar incidents, you’d better always back up everything important on different drives or cards.
