Have you tried taking any photos onto another CF and downloading them?
If they download alright then I think it would be reasonable to assume that the camera and computer are okay. That would only leave a CF card problem, or operator error.

I think this is a great idea. Try taking pictures NOW and uploading them to your computer. If it doesn't work with new photos, you're probably not gonna get your old ones from yesterday.

pc file inspector, available at http://www.pcinspector​.de …overy/info.htm?​language=1 (external link)

i've used it to recover files from flash cards up to hard drives. never failed me. if a file is there, it can find it.

like others have said, get a card reader for this. the cf card will show up as a removable drive in explorer (my computer) and you can view the contents exactly like it was a hard drive.

I had a feeling that this would of made you think your shots were gone. Glad to know I was right!

I am very happy it all worked out. Still doesn't explain the situation where the camera could not preview the pictures on the card later. Something still very strange there, but it appears all is good, and I happily choke on my words! ;) My guess is that whatever software automatically fired up must have tried to reformat the CF card, or the OP formatted or deleted all pictures by accident.

Glad you got your shots back. This is always a risk with digital, but somehow, you can do something to get the pictures back. Have fun PP!

I have to agree. I have to say I'm not totally convinced we've been told the whole story. Whatever, it is good the OP has his pics back.

OK - on your sisters computer. Go into my computer (start button > my computer). You'll see a list of your drives. Right click on the C drive. Select search from the drop down menu. You want to search for "all files and folders" (click on that link). In the section where it says "all or part of the file name", type in this:

*.crw

And then click search. It may take a while, depending on how fast her PC is. If this doesn't return any hits, try this as the search criteria:

*.cr2

Please make sure to type them exactly as is! If there are any RAW files from the Canon on there, it'll find them on her system.

If you shot jpeg (as I understand it), then it's going to be tougher. All I can suggest is to search for:

*.jpg

and

*.jpeg

If you get any "hits" from your searches, check out where the files are located - the easiest way to do this is to right click on one of the files, and select 'properties' from the drop down menu. On the window that comes up, click on the General tab (if it isn't already open on that). About half way down it should say "location". You should be able to see what the location is from there. If the location is so long that it gets cut off on the right hand side, click once where the actual location is, and use your right arrow key on the keyboard to scroll to the right, taking note of the whole location.

Good luck!

Dave

PS have you checked in the following location:

c:\documents and settings\your_sisters_​windows_login_name\my documents\my pictures ??? That's usually the default location...
