My camera is broken......

 I seem to be going through a period of 'things' malfunctioning over the past few months. 

Today it is the turn of my camera.  I took some lovely photos of the deep snow and the work I have been doing in my garden for the past three days - and not only will they not down load - the memory stick is on strike!

It tantalisingly told me that there were 98 images - which were my crafting and other images - forever frozen in time on the little black stick!

Where does all this 'stuff' go?  Like the five years worth of daily  posting on my website that disappeared when the host had a major malfunction and 'lost' it all.

Is it floating around somewhere in cyber space - I just don't understand.  One minute it is there looking great - the next it is gone!

At least in the 'olden days' when writing something, you had something tangible, that didn't just disappear.  When taking photos -  you had a roll of film that you could keep for years and still get prints. OK so it wasn't instant like today - but mostly it was more permanent!

So despite working my socks off and achieving rather a lot  - you will just have to take my word for it-and it will just remain in my memory - for how long is rather debatable at my age!

i know exactly how you feel Lottie. we've been without hard drive on our PC for 3 weeks and our router died a week ago just when our IT chap is on holiday. typical!

Oh dear, what a pain! All may not be lost, though. If your card is telling you it has images, they should still be recoverable. There are programs you can download from the 'net to get them back, but unless you really know what you're doing, best to take the card somewhere like Boots or Jessops (or other good camera shop)and get them to do it for you. Just make sure you don't do anything else with the card in the meantime, otherwise you could inadvertently overwrite the files. I do hope you manage to get your pictures back. xx

Technology can be such a pain! I forget how I got here but I'm your newest follower! Looks like a fun blog!

Oh how frustrating for you. Definitely try taking that pesky memory stick to a good camera shop and see if they can retrieve your photos. Technology is instant these days however when it does not function properly I beleive it is even more disappointing to us. Good luck Lottie.

Sorry to hear about your camera Lottie. I would do like the other say take your camera and your memory stick to the photo shop or Tescoes where they do photo's and see if they know how to retrieve you pictures. Good Luck. Hugs x ChrisB
