View Full Version : HELP with card format error

12-11-2005, 08:47 AM
I've had my Olympus camera for almost 2years and have never had any issues until today.

I tried to upload some pics from last night and it hit me with a "card is not formatted, format now" error message.

When I took out the picture card and put it into my card reader the computer told me the exact same thing.

I know that formatting it will delete the pics I took. And I don't want that to happen.

Is there anyway I can fix this without losing my important pics?

$40 Rescue Pro - so basically, only for very important data.


Never a guaranteed thing. There is a downloadable demo that you can use to "sniff" out the condition and recoverability of your card.

Hope that helps you.
