Question about Nikon Coolpix S3 Digital Camera
My camera came with a 512MB SD IMPACT memory card. That card continues to work fine in my camera.
However, I have been using a 1 GB SD IMPACT memory card, which has worked fine until recently. I have taken many pictures on it and put them from the camera onto the computer without problems and have deleted many pictures from the camera. My 1GB card said on the camera that it would hold 900 and some pictures, but the day that it said it had over 200 pictures left on it, it quit working. I went to review my pictures for that day and found that the last 10 or 12 pictures I had taken were not on the card. Worse yet, my screen was red and said that the card has the wrong format and press okay to format the card. I did not press okay for fear I would lose my vacation pictures, right? I have taken it out and put it back in, but that didn't help.
How do I get the pictures off the memory card now that it says it has the wrong format without losing them? And why, after all this time, does it say it has the wrong format? If I just hook up the camera to the computer, will it let me print them off? I haven't tried that, because I really don't want to take the chance of losing the vacation pictures.
Thank you for your help.My card is Kingston 1GB. I have used it for 2 years without problems until today. When I was trying to download pictures to my laptop using card reader I got message that the card was not formatted. I did not format the card as I was feared of losing the pictures. I put the card back into camera (Nikon S3) but there was the same message stating the card being not formatted. How can I restore the data without formatting the card (I do not want to lose the pictures)? I tried the card with a card reader, camera, and Wolverine data bank without success. Thanks
