I know you didn't delete it, but you might be able to view and retrieve your files with this software:

Can you connect your phone to your PC via USB?

A few alternatives you can try.

Try connecting the phone to your computer using a usb cable if your phone has a usb (mini usb) port.

Or, take out the card and plonk it into an external card reader, then connect the reader to the PC.

Or try establish a bluetooth connection to your PC.

Then copy off the files from the card to your hdd and format the card IN THE PHONE.

I have found when one card reader didn't work, I tried another successfully. Do you have a friend with a card reader you can try it on?

What is the make and model of your card reader?

**EDIT**

You could also email the photos

Why not just put the card BACK into the phone and use its features to delete the pic's?

Have you tried that already and it won't let you?

I'm asking because I had an old Motorola phone and you could only delete files from its SD card using the phone. When the phone formatted the card, it did something to prevent files from being deleted using a card reader.

I don't think he wants to delete them. I believe he needs the pictures transferred to a pc.

If I put my card into a card reader it asks me to format or cancel thats it. that is all i can DO.
