Question about Cameras
Don't format before you have all your pictures and files on your computer.
If de memory card is "bad" there could be a way to get everything of the card. Some firms have special programs to recover "damaged" files or files from "damaged" disks. Ontrack is one, but panasonic and some other memory card or drive makers doe have these programs. The most are not for free, but sometimes you can use such a program to save a limited amount of files or pictures. If that works, you almost can rescue all the files on the card.
After you saved all files to your computer, you best format the memory card in your camera, so the best format needed for the camera is on the card.
I only typed "rescue programm for memory card" en the first 3 lines were:
www.wondershare.net with free trail
www.cardrescue.com with free evaluation version
If none of these programs show any file, your card is really damaged and you have to fear the worst. Nothing to recover.
Please don't format before you saved your files.

SOURCE: Format and Check SD card
Purchase an inexpensive card reader such as the Ativa, available at Staples and Office Depot for $9.95. Put your memory card with the photos on it into the reader and plug it into a USB port on your computer. Windows will recognize it as another drive and assign it a drive letter. Using any graphics program, or Windows Explorer, navigate to that drive, open the file containing the pics, click select all, and copy the pics to a file on your computer. Make sure that all the pics have transferred or copied to the new file. Replace the card back into your camera and format the card so it is empty and ready to receive new pics. FYI: Less than 1 gig memory cards are available on ebay for dirt prices. Also, go to the camera manufacturers website and see if they have a firmware update for your camera that allows larger than 1 gig cards to be used. I had to do that for my Fuji S700 so I could use 4 gig cards. It used to max out at 2 gigs. If this has solved your problem please rate it accordingly. Good luck.

SOURCE: put in a 4gb SD
There are no 4GB SD cards. A card that size is actually an SDHC card. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different. Many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.
