Hey people! i really need help here.... i need serious solutions, ok? I opened my memory card thru a card reader on my PC... the pictures were there... I copied some into my PC and then i safely removed the USB after I opened the files i needed... Then back on my cellphone, the pictures weren't there anymore. So i tried to open the memory card back again on my PC to check the files but I found the folders empty and there is a message saying "the filename...invalid syntax error" and "the files were either removed..." BUT i didn't do anything... How can i get my files back??? PLEASE HELP ME.

not sure what happened to you but it seems that they just got corrupted, BTW what is the brand of the memory card? is it a cheap one? cause they do tend to lose data easily like that. as for software recovery thy spinrite. hope this helps

im not sure about that brand so just try to use spinrite or this one "Flash Memory Toolkit" try to use the scan if it can still recover the files. problem is you'll have to buy the software to use the recover tool

hi there, that usually happens when you do not safely remove your portable storage device. the files were probably corrupted. i would recommend you try file recovery tools.they are available in the web. nice pic btw
