Hi, Wondering if you could help with this one?
 
I tried repairing my Kodak with 16189 photos (very worried!) by repairing it in the Add/Remove function in the Control Panel but it didn't work.
 
I have not deleted/removed these files from my computer.
 
Here's a print screen of it. Photos blocked in blue square for a reason.
 
ALL my photos are like this, even ones from CD's and even new ones. I have been using Picasa and am wondering if this has anything to do with it?

I appreciate your advice.
Thanks

I would next backup/copy the photos to another location as a precaution.

I have a similar amount of photos often I take 1000+ photos at one daily event 

I realize that's alot of space.  I use a spare drive or at least SD cards

Umm... my point is that I can't even access my photos/videos to back them up:(

 

Wondering if I reinstall/insert the Kodak program into my computer/DVD tray if this may update it or something to fix what isn't working do you think?

 

TIA :)

I suggest you attempt Recuva, it can recover files that have lost their file references, like yours. Assuming they have not been written over.

I've tried Recuva before, but just gave it another go. Nothing comes up :(

 

& I know I haven't written over them.

try a Linux live disk...

 

boot from the disk and just browse to the correct location, then copy the files over to a portable drive/memory stick.

 

For live disks Puppy is fairly easy to use for beginners, as well as being a smallish download.

Oh golly, that is a lot of info to get my brain around. Thank you, I will search through this and get it done over the next few days. (Read that as not having the confidence to do this but will definitely do so over the next few days :) )

 

Thank you :)

don't be scared...

 

It is really as simple as creating a disk with the ISO from the downloaded link (don't copy to, but create), and then booting from disk.

 

It seems daunting, but after you've done it you will realize how easy it actually is/was.
