    My pics and music were deleted from the phone's internal memory. All advice given are for phones with USB debugging and NOT for the GS4 that uses MTP and PTP. Is there anything I can do? I'm extremely desperate for the pics lost were of my deceased granny. Please help...

    Hmm thats a good reason to move them to an external sd card or to back them up with google plus or even the kies see google owns picasa the photo web site and when you get your google account and use google plus and activate the instant upload it will upload any picture but depends on how its formatted if you did a factory data reset most likely you might not get them back how did you delete them?

    from my wonderfully rooted gs4 woot

    I have with the pc. Download recuva on pc and attach the phone to it. Select the phone and it will search for any undamaged files/pict/music... If you install something or use more memory for anything you run the risk of ruining the deleted files by righting over them.

    Help! I kinda have the same problem. Woke up one morning and all my photos under the default camera folder in gallery were gone! All that was left were the photos in the subfolders i created to sort the pics. Im using note 3 n9005 and its not rooted. I dont have an external sd card, everything was saved to internal memory. Is there no way to recover these photos and vids without rooting?

    Use Recuva like the other person mentioned.

    If you don't have an external SD when you downloaded something else it rewrote those files try that method with the computer but most likely no and get a drop box account or use Google plus and it will upload it to picasa for free (google owns picasa)

    I just tried to run this software using a Moto G phone, not an S4. It uses MTP/PTP so I have not been able to recover my lost photos/videos. The phone stopped and restarted turning off/on several times when the s/w was attempting to detect it. Can you please say whether the ANdroid Phone Recovery s/w will work for Moto G? It's my only ray of hope after 2 days of searching!

    If you know someone with a rooted device that takes an SD card you can put your card in their device and run Disk Digger. I did it for a friend of mine and retrieved all his lost pictures. I had to copy them onto my SD card, then rewrote them back onto his card. Worked like a charm!
    And it will work on a re-formatted SD card if the old files weren't written over yet.

    sorry for the loss.
    you can just google a recovery software in google, search with the words like "Android Phone Recovery", if you want to the software can detect you GS4,you have to loot your phone, if it is in the internal memory( if it is in the external memory, you can just take the card out and use a card reader to plug to computer), the software can only have the authority to access the looted phone.
    So choose the recovery software you like, the first page's result normally will fit what you need.
    and just follow the software's guide,it is pretty easy.

    Good luck

    As far as I know, the data recovery programs for computers doesn't work on Android based devices. it's more hard to restore files from flash drive than hard drive. I already tried Recuva and PhotoRec without any luck.

    The following guide is the one which helped me recovering deleted photos from memory: how to recover files from internal memory

    Hope this helps.

    I tried Gihosoft Free Android Recovery. I deleted photos from my Samsung Galaxy S5 and this free tool helped me get them back.

    Have you been tried the Recuva like other said? I think it's nice and should be helpful for you. If it doesn't work, you can also try the FonePaw iPhone Data Recovery, saw from AndroidPit. https://www.androidpit.com/how-to-recover-lost-data It said that it can recover photos, music, videos, contacts etc from Android phone.
