Try using another memory card. I would take the memory card back to the shop and ask for another one. I had the same problem. it was the card, not the camera.

Camera cards are never to be formatted on the computer....only in the camera. "card error" usually always means you need to format the card in the camera. This will erase it so download any pics you want to save first.

What do I need to attach camera to computer to upload photos from Pentax M20 Optio digital onto computer?


A card reader is your best choice.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

I formatted by mistake the card attached


With the help of technology, yes. There is still a way for you to recover it. Download this software, install to your computer and then follow the instructions on how to recover your files.

By the way, until you have not recovered the files, please make sure that you will not use the card and store more photos on it. This is to help you ensure that you would still get the photos you need on the formatted card.

Here is one of the many softwares you can use for data recovery:
