    ok so i took some great photo's at a gig last night, and now they're all gone, there's just a space for each one with a file name - 1235486684616.jpg or similar - but the photo's themselves seem to have vanished. any suggestions as to whats causing this / how to fix it?

    So the files are zero-length?
    If they're decent-sized files (several MB), I bet they're just missing the metadata for jpg, which any photo recovery app (take your pic, there are about a zillion free ones, and varying paid ones with more features) will fix.
    If they're zero-length, that's another issue, I'd definitely try taking some pics, make sure your photo destination (SD card maybe?) has space, etc, so you don't get zinged again.
    I took a slew of pics yesterday at my MIL's BDay party, and have taken quite a few others to-date, maybe 4-500; so far I haven't had an issue, other than USB slowness on .218 (different issue, different thread). I have all mine going to my SD card, for reference.

    Your files may have gone corrupt! You can try to open your files by connecting/opening on a different device to get assured to the corruption . Nevertheless, your files can be recovered by using a photo recovery software. I heard of Stellar Phoenix. They have a bunch of good recovery tools. Try here.

    IF you have your onedrive set to upload your photos and videos, which is the default setting, you might find your photos in your onedrive.

    It seems many people are still being bothered by this problem. Try an excellent file recovery software, which can find the deleted or hidden photos and files on your storage device.
