    I'm experiencing the exact same problem as spinky11. The photos wouldn't upload into my computer, and the camera screen just says "card not formatted."

For Windows (XP-7)
Obtain the application called GetDataBack for FAT32. You should use an application such as this because it doesn't care if a filesystem is present and intact, unlike many poor recovery utilities.

Ignore Windows' request to format the card when attaching via a card reader. It's important that you not directly attach from the camera unless it offers a simple storage mode whereby the card appears as a USB memory stick etc under (My)Computer

If you are not comfortable with learning how to use the application on your own, seek out help at a PC tech forum - it's quite popular.

Just remember to use excessive scanning and set temp/recovery folders to something other than the attached card, eg a folder on your desktop.

Try formatting it in another device such as another card reader with another PC or formatting it in a digital camera

If the software below does not fix the problem, then replace the card.

My c902 has suddenly stopped recognising the m2 card

This may have something to do with how the m2 card is formated. PC systems such as FAT32 and NTFS do not work with cameras or telephones as the data cards in these devices are formatted to FAT16 or lower. In order to read the card when you placed it in your PC FAT32 would have been used.

If you are prepared to loose the data on the card I suggest you use a PC to re-format it to FAT16, your phone should then recognise it again!
