I just got back from my first cruise and took so many pictures. I don't have a USB so I went to go place the memory card into my computer but it won't read the card. So when I put the memory card back into the camera it said Memory Card Format "Power Off" or "Format" but I know that if I format it all my pictures will be erased. Is there any other way of uploading my pictures without erasing them?

Pictures Lost??? We have a large number of pics on our 1GB memory card in our camera.

When I put the memory card in the camera it says 'cannot read' it. How do I format the card? I know it has the right 'size' memory.
