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.

How to repair memory card


  1. Download and install a data recovery program. The first thing you want to do when you encounter a memory card error is to attempt to recover important files. There are a number of programs available to accomplish this. Photo Rec is a powerful, free option for most operating systems, but lacks a graphical user interface, which can be intimidating for less advanced users. Find the data recovery program you are most comfortable with in terms of price and features.

    Disk with data stored on it says that it is not formatted


    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.

    You can tarnsfer all the photos to your computer by using the data transfer cable that comes along woth the mobile phone. Insert one end of the cable in ur phone and ther other end in your laptop/computer where USB sign is given. The laptop/computer would detect a new object and open all the data avilable in your mobile. You can select the photos from those folders and copy them and then paste them on your desktop.All the photos in ur sim card and memory card would reflect in your computer once the wire is inserted. Please contact me in case issue is not resolved.

    Downloading pictures onto computer


    There are Three primary ways to do this...

    1. use a (usualy supplied) data cable... normaly a USB cable... it connects to your computer/laptop , Use a Photo utility program to "find" the camera. You should be able to view the pics stored in the camera.

    2. If the camera pics are stored on a sim card then simply put that card in a multi card reader... (very inexpensive to purchase and standard on some late model PC's) and in most cases you can pull the pics directly from the card.

    3. Take the camera directly to walmart or walgreen's photo station and they usualy can pull the pics directly from it.


    give me some more info and I maybe able to give detailed help...
