1). Never format this memory card before you've recovered all your stored data back. In your case, the formatting process may erase everything on your card and make your data gone permanently.
2). Never save anything new on this card in case that any new file would rewrite your original data.
3). Plunge this card to your computer and download a memory card data recovery freeware to get back all your lost data back:
http://www.freeware-fix.blogspot.com/2013/03/memory-card-recovery.html
This freeware has helped many people around me restore their inaccessible data back from a hard drive or memory card. It can also work perfectly on your memory card.
Read more detailed information of this freeware here:
http://www.freeware-fix.blogspot.com/2013/04/data-recovery.html
4). Save and back up all your restored data on another drive or card in case of data recovery failure.
5). Format this card to see whether it is fixable.
Note: Next time, no matter what has happened, you should firstly back up everything important well on different drives or places.

It is recommemded to format the memory cards once in a while but formatting the card will completely wipe the data on the card

and option is to format the card as it is not bein recognised but later on use some softwares from the net which can recover data even from formatted discs a word of caution though that there is no guarantee that all the files can be recovered so if can then backup before formatting

I need to download my pictures from my camera into my computer please help me thank you


There are two possible ways to go about transferring your photos from a digital camera onto your computer. Please note that the given solutions both assume you are running Microsoft Windows XP or newer as the steps may be slightly different on a Macintosh or earlier versions of Windows.

Option 1: USB Transfer Cable. Most digital cameras come packaged with a cable that has a standard USB jack on one end, and a smaller plug on the other end. Locate the appropriate hole on your camera that the smaller plug (Micro-usb) will fit into. There is a decent chance this hole will be covered by a silicone or rubber flap, so that should help you find it. Plug the full size USB plug into your computer and a pop-up should appear on your screen asking you what you want to do with the new storage device. Scroll to the last option "Open a folder to view the files" and double-click. From there, simply copy and paste photos to the desired directory on your computer.
Please note: If you do not receive the pop-up, simply navigate to My Computer, and look for a device that is not your hard drive (Typically C:\) or your CD\DVD drive (Typically D:\) and double click to open it up. The pictures should be located in a folder named DCIM, but it varies by manufacturer so you may have to check a few folders to find them.

Option 2: Memory Card Reader. Alternatively, if your computer has a memory card reader you can simply remove the memory card from the camera and plug it into an appropriate slot in the card reader. Most memory cards are located right next to the battery storage on modern cameras. Pictures of typical card readers for a desktop (fig. 1) and laptop (fig. 2) are provided below. Once the memory card has been inserted, you should see a pop-up asking what you want to do with the new storage device. Scroll to the last option "Open a folder to view the files" and double-click. From there, simply copy and paste photos to the desired directory on your computer.

Formatting the card may fix the problem however you will loose all the data on the card. I have a solution here that can help you but you need a SD Card Reader on your computer to back up the files.

3. If the window pop-up like asking to open with what program select Open as File.
4. If the window does not pop-up, Go to My Computer/Computer. There should be the SD Card Memory.
5. Backup all the save file in your SD Card in other word copy the whole SD card. Save it in your computer. Make sure you remember where you put it.
6. Reformat the SD Card by Right Click and click Fromat
7. Tick Quick Format
8. After it finish formatting, Try open the SD Card. It should be empty.
9. Put back all the copied file back into SD Memory Card.
10. Plug it on your DS. Check the files. Play and Enjoy

Format the memory in the computer using all-in-one memory card card reader. But if it cannot complete the formatting or it hangs up in the computer then your sd card is broken.

I get a message on the screen of my LCX-15MT: GPS not responding. I have tried to update the software but it says my MCC card needs formatting when I turn the device on. There appears to be a formatting...


To get the updates, start with a blank card. The first time you use it you will plug it into the card reader. It may ask you to format here. If so click "OK". If not: Go to "My Computer" - it will show up there as a storage device. Right click and select format. It will in effect "erase" the card and "prep" it for further use.

Follow the prompts. When done you should be able to go to the site you wish to download from and when you click on the file it will ask if you want to save it. "Yes" to your "Desktop". Once done you can open "my computer" - double click on the card reader. It will open with nothing in it. Reduce the screen pic for the reader so you can also see your desktop. Put cursor on desktop file - Right click and hold the button down while you drag the file to the card reader file and let go of the button. Click "Copy Here". Now you should be able to take the card and insert it into the display to run the actual update.

Everytime i turn on the camera it asks me to format the card


Try formatting a card in your computer first (fat32) and try it in the camera. If that doesn't work, it sounds like you have a problem with the card reader in the camera. You would want to call Kodak for repair options.
