NO! Formatting the disk will remove all of the pictures from it.
First make sure that you can view your pictures using the camera.
If you can, then the problem lies between the camera and computer.
I have found the best method of transferring is to connect to the computer with the USB lead, and drag and drop the files from the camera to a folder in the computer.
Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.
Once the camera is attached to the computer via USB cable, windows explorer treats the camera card just like another hard drive. the same goes if the camera card is inserted into a card reader.
Because of this, the camera can be seen as a listed hard drive, (C:), (D:), (E:)..... With windows explorer open view "Computer", listing all existing drives, plug your usb cable into the computer and the camera. When you turn on your camera, AutoPlay begins. Choices range from import pictures to viewing pictures with whatever programs are loaded into you computer.
If not AutoPlay then just use Windows Explorer. The Camera will appear as "Removable Disk (K:) [(K:) is on my computer]. Opening this disk will show subdirectories "DCIM" and 100OLYMP. Your pictures are in 100OLYMP. They can be higlighted and drug into the folder of your choice on your computer.
View with windows media center, etc. or download Google's free PICASA 3. It can also download ("Import") your pictures.
When I connect my camera a Microsoft screen comes up and asks how I want to view my pictures. Try going to "my computer" and verify if you see a "drive" for your camera. if you do click on it and you will be able to view your pictures
