I have a casio EXLIM EX-Z750 and accidently deleted the images from the SD ram card in it. I have not been able to figure out how to undelete and get my images back. Casio say 'impossible' to retrieve the images. Can this be done with SD ram? I tried a few SD ram utilities but they all come back 'no images'. Shall I give up? I have left the SD Ram undisturbed since the accidental deletion. help if you can.

What do you mean by SD RAM?

Do you mean a Secure Digital Card, or do you mean the internal memorybuilt into the camera? They are two different things.

What kind of utilities?

Only use utilities that read from a card. Never use anything that may try to write to it like chkdsk or disk scanning utiities built into windows.

If you mean a Secure Digital Card (card that you can remove from the camera), you can probably recover the images, as long as you didn't use any utilities that tried to "fix" it.

The preferred method would be to use a card reader in case the camera is damaged in some way preventing you from reading the images.

But, it wouldn't hurt to go ahead and try reading directly from the camerato see ifyou can recover them that way.

A good utility to try is Digital Image Recovery (it's free). It doesn't support raw files but it works with jpeg. You can download it using this link.


Look under "My Computer" and make note ofthe drive letter for the reader (or camera if connected via USB). Then,run the Digital Image Recovery Program.

You then select English as the languge (when it starts it will ask), andselectthe source drive letter your want it to read from (the drive letter for your card).

You then browse for a folder for it to copy recovered images to on your hard disk drive and press the start button (just leave everything else at the defaults).

Here is another product designed to recover images if Digital Image Recovery can't get them back for you (not free, but they have a demo version you can try to see if it works).
