    Will the camera connect directly to the PC via a USB port?
    That should allow pics to be downloaded.

    locked SD CARD

    Hi tick59 have you checked the SD card that it isn't in the locked position???
    or check the settings installed in the camera

    sounds like the cards at fault...not the camera or reader.

    They're much cheaper than they used to be, trouble is you've lost your pictures.:Sad:

    If you would like me take a look send me a PM. You could post me the SD card and I could try and extract the data. I have had some success with this in the past. Of course there is no guarantee but either way I'll post the card back to you. If all else fails it's got to be worth a try.

    Still not out of the question if you're willing to give it a go. A friend had his card wiped by security staff at an airport in Africa and I managed to recover over 600 of his photos!
