Recover erased photos from digital camara

  1. Hi!

    My hdd recently crashed, erasing pictures that I´ve already moved from my camera (Digital IXUS 80). Now I want to recover them from the memory card. I have O&O UnErase, but my problem is that when I connect my camera to my computer running Win XP, it shows up as "Digital Camara IXUS 80", and not as an external drive, therefore O&O Unerase can´t recover anything from it.
    Is it possible to make XP recognize the camera as an external drive (eg. F: )? Or can I use another program in this case?

    Thanks.

    You need a media card reader which a lot of new PC's come with. You can also buy a multi-card reader that plugs in to your USB port. That may not allow you to "undelete: however. A memory card is not the same as a hard drive especially if you have used the memory card for anything else since.
