So sad

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I took a bunch of pictures today of the babies and my kids celebrating thanksgiving i had 164 pics on my camera and i was going to download them and post them i had some really cute ones of salem he crawled inside my sons backpack and would "getcha" everytime you would walk by he did this to the other cats and my kids. it was really cute he never had his claws out so i know he was just being silly salem. but when i asked my daughter to bring me tha camera from the livingroom she dropped it (i almost died) she brought it to me and i put the batteries back in i was hoping that because it had been turned off that all the pictures were there but alas i only ended up with the pictures from yesterday and early this morning not a single pic was on there that i took of us actually enjoying thanksgiving and te cats and kids playing. poor baby cheyenne was so upset that she cried. i told her it was ok and that it was just an accident. i told her i wasn't mad or anything. it didn't matter she feels so bad she came in about a hour before she was supposed to go to bed still crying and gave me hugs and kisses and said she was going to bed. she cried herself to sleep!!!!! I feel horrible that she feels so bad. i didn't act upset at all it really bothers me when she is so emotional like this. i know alot of it is because she is "hitting that age" but still. im just sad all around sad because its thanksgiving (my dad passed away on thanksgiving and this is the first thanksgiving without either one of my parents(my mom passed away in feb.) sad because the pictures of our family were erased. sad because my daughter was so upset. i really need some pick me ups guys.

Just tell your daughter that memories can't be erased from your heart.

Sounds like it was going to be an emotional day whether something went wrong or not. Those "firsts" can be very difficult. Whether you have pictures to share or not, the main thing is that you were all together to share the holiday.

And it is true, what was already posted by valanhb, you have those memories and many more of years past. They will always stay in your heart!

aaaaw sweetie, I'm so sorry to hear you're feeling so blue! But you're right, accidents happen and it was simply that. I'm glad you didn't get so stressed out over it though otherwise Cheyenne would have been distraught

But the advice has been good - memories can never be taken away from you.

Curious though - have the pictures been erased because the camera was dropped? Were your pictures stored on a memory card, or on the internal memory? Is it possible to take the camera to an elecronics store just to see if the data can be retrieved? Maybe it's worth a try. I don't know much about electronics, but I'd say try it before condemning the pictures to the big photoalbum in the sky.

BIG BIG hugs to you and Cheyenne and I hope you're both feeling better

You could try the above programs. They have a demo to tell you which photos can be recovered but to actually recover them you have to buy it.

Alternatively, the memory card may be ok but the problem could be with the camera itself. So you may want to try to take out to memory card and use a reader for it directly.

Hugs to you! That is a shame. You can make up for it at Christmas and take lots more though.

Yes, that's possible. Once the pictures are on the memory card, the batteries being removed shouldn't affect anything. The memory card is permanent storage, like a floppy disk or hard drive.

Also, what everyone else said about the memories still being there.
