Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera
I formatted my SD card before using it on my (very cheap) Orite camera. I can see the images fine on the camera but when I came to download the images using a card reader, I got the message "the disc you inserted was not readable by this computer" - it's a mac. On the PC it can read the card but all the files are gobbledygook (all squares and symbols).
Will I be able to use a disc recovery program to download the images?
Cheers for any help
It appears to me it could be the operating system. You said it is a MAC. Try your friends Window based computer with the card reader and see if you can view the photos then.

If you formatted the sd card in the camera it changed the way the it basically writes. Only the camera has the software to read the formated card that is why your computers can't. Have you tried using the card before you formatted it? When a camera ask you to format a card it changes the way it writes the program and if you cant get it to read on a computer the camera company wants you to buy the reading software from them.
