    I have managed to down load loads of my pics via sd card to my computer
    but now i can not load any new ones, they just do not show up, i think the camera is still working ok.

    If the camera didn't yell at you to tell you the card was full, you should be ok.

    My camera software dumps pictures in "shared pictures" rather than "my pictures" by default. Try there?

    If not, select search from the start menu. Search for pictures and on the advanced options set the 'last modified' dates to either the day you transferred the pictures or the day you took them, then just search for *
    That should bring up any pictures created or modified on the date you specify, so your photos should be there somewhere.

    Hope you find them.

    Maybe you saved them on Evo's computer...the one that went kerplooey. The two of you should definitely not be allowed on the same continent. :biggrin:

    most have a similar 'name' before renaming with the usual extension---mvcxxx.jpg or dscxxx.jpg ---do a 'file find' for the name --like a search for mvc*.jpg----

    Well i think that is a bit austerulous calling me a danger to continents.
    I am sure Evo would not harm them either.
