Memory card I had photos stored on a SanDisk 512MB memory card in a Nikon Coolpix camera that is now broken. I put the card in my HP Photosmart r707 to try to trasnfer the photos to my computer. The memory card blocked the camera. I can bring up the photos in a diaporama on my computer but I cannot transfer them. And now the HP camera menu is written in Japanese(?) not the original French. How can I restore the camera to its original state and retrieve my photos.
