    I've just used my SDHC in a Canon SLR which I used yesterday in my Nikon P6000... & now all the images are missing??

    Anyone now how to get them back. They're only mess around pic, but I'm playing around trying to teach myself...

    Did you format it in the canon? I assume you mean the Nikon's images are missing?

    It's odd both sets of images are missing. You would think it would be one or the other..
    I have a Canon SLR & a Canon P&S, I have swapped the card back and forth but I probably didnt have any problems due to them both being Canon.

    They are missing when you put the card in the camera, or the folder for that camera is missing when you put the card in a reader?

    If you shot in canon raw the nikon isn't going to read it.

    Also keep in mind that the file numbering system can malfunction when swapping cards from one camera to the next. For example, if I grab a card from my wife's XT and use it on my 40D (or vise-versa), the camera is going to use a number greater than the highest number in the card. So, lets say that I buy a brand new camera and use the card from the XT, and that this card has recorded 800 photos. In this case, the first photo on my new 40D will be numbered 801. But if I format the card first, then my camera continues using the numbering system in memory. Since it's anew camera, the first photo on the formatted card will be numbered 0001.
