I have a PNY Optima SD 2 GB memory card with $500 worth of photos on it...Whether its in the camera or the removable drive on my laptop I'm asked to format the disk. How can I extract the photos without having to format and lose them.

Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for. They all work well, but recommend out of the four listed software using "PC Inspector Smart Recovery", as it's the most thorough in recovering photos:

You will need to use a flash card reader (the one on your laptop should work fine) with this software.

    Have you tried the software? The software should overide and still work even though your computer is requesting to format the card. Just ignore the format request and run the software.

We insert a memory chip into our Kodak EasyShare C190 camera. The read-out informs us that the memory card requires formatting. We click on "OK." The camera goes into a "formatting" mode, then informs us...


Your camera is only supporting SD/MMC Cards (up to 2 GB) and KODAK SDHC Cards (up to 8 GB).
The card that you currently have might be faulty. Please try another card.
You might also need to switch the camera over to saving pictures directly onto the SD card.1: Menu, Cam settings, Chose AUTO or SD card option Press OK
Note: If the SD card isn't in the camera or is unreadable the camera will automatically go back to saving you taken pictures on the internal memory.

I have a kodak M1033 camara with a SD HC PNY optima 240 HD 16 GB and the camara says internal memory is full and is only 1/2 minute video in the camara please help


Hi!
Sonds like the camera hasn't switched to the memory card. Go to setup and set memory to Auto not Internal. If that doesn't help, it's possible that the camera doesn't support 16GB card, but it should give you a card error then, so check the memory settings first.

pny does not supply card readers w/memory cards-sandisk on certain cards includes reader because file format is different on sdhc cards -try downloading direct from camera w/usb or get a card reader that absolutley supports sdhc type cards-not all readers do!
