A friend with a Nikon Coolpix 3100 noticed onĀ* vacation in Jamaica that her date was wrong on her digital camera. (She had 149 photos on her card). Anyway, she reset the date & time, etc. Then her photo count went from 149 to 0. She has no idea what happened to all the photos on her card or how to get them back.Does anyone have any suggestions?

That shouldn't have happened. The date/time setting is done from the setup menu and deleting pictures is done from the playback menu.

The only thing that I can figure is that maybe she tried to change the incorrect date/time stamp imprinted on the pictures and messed with the delete menu. Once the date/time has been recorded with a picture, you can't change it, only reset the time/date from the setup menu and live with the shots that have the incorrect time.

Anyway, if she hasn't recorded anymore shots on that card she might be able to use retrieval software to get the images back. There are a number of programs that are made for this purpose, some of which can be downloaded as freeware. Check out the Memory Cards thread on this forum and there are lots of links given for this recovery software. If she has used the card since then, she might be out of luck.
