Question about Cameras
When trying to get images off my memory card on to my pc it came up with the error, 'card not formatted'. Now when I put the card back in the camera it comes up with the same error message and I can't see my images, please help as the images are of a wedding!
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.
