I have been using a CF SanDisk 128MB memory card in a Nikon Coolpix 3100 camera for the last weeks. Managed to take several shots and managed to view on a PC via a USB universal card reader drive. Operating system is Windows Xp.

Today I inserted the memory card in the camera and an error on the camera display states that the card cannot be read.

Some friends siad that the card is corrupt - but i don't want to just throw away the card before seeking a second advise.

My question is

1. Is there away how can I retreive the pictures stored?

2. Can the card be reformatted and reused?

Please reply in simple terms.

Thanks for anybody willing to help!!!!!!!!!
