Hi, I'm new and i've been having trouble with a gemini keychain digital camera I received for christmas. It keeps randomly deleting my pictures before I get a chance to download them onto my computer. It has recently done it to me again with some pics that were rather important to me. Does anyone have any suggestions for possibly recovering those pics or if not, at least how to stop it from doing this?

Hi sistersadness, welcome to the forums!

Unfortunately, you might not be able to recover your pictures if you've already taken more pictures with the camera. However, all might not be lost! Try this software HERE. Just use the free trial. You can also try other software programs by doing a search on Google and typing in "photo recovery software" (without the quotes). If one doesn't work, another might, but it's unlikely. If after the second attempt of recovering your lost images fails, then I'd say that you're out of luck :thumbsup:

The problem with the small keychain cameras is that they're more of a novelty item instead of a "hi-tech" device. So, you're not getting the quality of a full blown digital camera, which is what you might be experiencing, where it might be deleting other images to make room for more, as where with a camera it will tell you "Unable to take picture, card full".

Digital camera's are fairly cheap nowadays, specially for a basic small point and shoot one. It might not hurt to buy one and stick it in your purse (or backpack or what have you).

Another route is to pick up a camera phone. This will allow you to snap photos whenever you want, and email (picture text) them to an email account for printing or further emailing. It will also eliminate the need to carry around a seperate camera that you'd worry about losing or breaking!

Hope this helps!

War produces veterans, wounded both physically and mentally. They have sacrificed for us.....and it is now our job to help these veterans, as they have already helped us in ways we will never know, in ways that we cannot fathom, and in ways that we take granted every day.
