This is a sign of a corrupted hard drive and we don't have any option but to format it and then after that you can use a data recovering software.

My photos won't download to my computer. It says the disk needs formatting. I have been successfully downloading photos for years.

if it says that means that probably you do not have enough space on C drive of the computer ..just open the camera in the my computer folder(if you have a card into the camera it will be seen as a removable storage device ) ..and copy /paste them into another location ..
If the message is on the camera ..than you did not formated the card proper and the stuff is not valid on it ..

SD card will not Format

Hello :

Look for a tiny switch on the side of the SD card . This switch indicates[ Lock or Unlock ] . You need to unlock it and try again with formatting .

If that didn't help , then I would think that the problem is with the device you are trying to format the card in .


good luck .

Unable to access my SmardDisk using the "My Computer" icon.

Windows sometimes treats external drives as if they were inside the computer and part of the system. This is usually caused by a user formatting it from the system control panel and assigning a "drive letter"
In this case windows will place a special hidden folder on there with the name you have given. (part of the recycle bin process)

If that then gets deleted say whilst connected to another computer, then when you take it back to the original machine that formatted it this would cause the error you describe.

If you can get any files off there that you need (maybe on another computer) then do so and re-format the drive but without assigning a drive letter. This would normally fix the problem. Note that when you format it is better to do it with NTFS file system so long as you don't want to use it to transfer to older computers that use the FAT system eg windows 95 98.

If you do then use FAT or FAT32

whichever you do the use FULL FORMAT not QUICK. I know it might take a little time but believe me I have seen drives with quick format come up with errors later.

Better to do it right than paper over the cracks
