Maybe you had something with a magnetic field lying nex to the flopy drive and the code got mixed up and now the data is not readable.
You can try with raw extraction like in CD's. you need to have a program to recover the data without having to actually decode them. I used to use Recovery Toolbox for CD's, I'm sure there's a simular programe for floppy's somewhere on the net. after recovering, things worked on the computer, although the dish was never usable since the day I got the message 'can't read data'/'no data'/'not formatted' etc.
With floppy's I think that you'll never get the data from it by computer itself. I didn't get the data from the corrupt CD's, and they have much more advancer programs than floppy discs. so I recomend you find the program, get the data and throw the floppy away. If you have problems finding the program, post and I'll help.

My Canon eos Rebel xs was working fine for over a year. Now it is telling me that my Card is not Formatted. Is there anyway to retrieve the pictures be for I format?


ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER
If your photos are stored on the memory card, then removethe memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader.Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of yourworking computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device oran external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card andcopy the photos to your computer.Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. Youcan copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off yourmemory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing anyprograms.

Don't know if you cover this area but can't find any information on my own...I have an SD card that read "card not initialized", I formatted the card to recover the photos and then another file...


If you formatted the card after the photos were stored on there, the photos were deleted. Format basically cleans the disk to a "like new" condition. Sadly, the pictures are not recoverable.

Copy memory card photos to cd


Yes you will. There is a way to recover your photos first before formatting, but it will require the use of software and a card reader. There is plenty of freeware software to do this, and card readers are relatively inexpensive these day. Please see the following: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/recovering-those-accidentally-lost.html After you've recovered the photos, format the card in your camera to prevent this from happening again.

Lost pictures


When a solid state disk as a memory card is formatted using the camera menu option, or perforing a Fast Formatting with a computer, the File system on media is deleted and overwritten.

If a complete format is done using a computer, the clusters containing data are erased before formatting. In that case there is no way to recover the data files.

Often there is no way to recover data from a formatted Disk or Memory card.

Try following the instructions on website below:

Memory card


Have you formatted memory card in phone before you started storing data on it? By formatting the memory card it will set up folders which the phone will look at to determine different types of data, i.e. photo folder holds photos, video folder holds mp4 &3gp, and music folder holds mp3 etc.
Then when your memory card is connected to your pc drag and drop data into correct folders and then phone should be able to recognise the different types of data. Hope that helps?
Only other thing I can think is that your memory card is too large to be recognised by your phone? It will only support upto and including 2gb Micro SD cards.

I am trying to transfer photos and data from 3.5 disk to cd's and memory cards but when I insert a disk it is telling me that the disk is not formatted and ask me if I want to format now. I know these disk...


You can't retrieve data from those disks on whatever computer you're using it on. It apparently doesn't support the same format that you used save the data to the disks initially. I don't know what you can do, other than just trying the disks on any computer you can find that has a floppy disk drive until something works. Personally, I absolutely hate all the formats there are for removable disks. I have problems just like that with CDs all the time.
Well, good luck.

Format memory card option on the menu


Deleting or formatting won't make the data in memory card erased permanently.

Those deleted data is still stored on the memory card, it's just invisible or inaccessible. Only the FAT or NFTS table is erased (the information about where those data were saved), but the real data are still intact there in sectors of the hard drive.

So as long as those data are not overwritten by new data, it's highly possible to recover them. And the MOST Effective way is to rely on some format recovery programs.

Try this data recovery program called asoftech data recovery, which can recover data after deeply scanning your memory card to look for lost data you accidentally deleted or formatted.
http://www.asoftech.com/adr/

Note: before the data is recovered, never attempt to put more files to the USB drive. As saving more files may cause original data overwritten. Once overwritten, it's impossible to recover the lost items.

Good luck and best regards!
