Having problems with your Nikon Digital Cameras ?

I have a Nikon CoolPix S8000. I have used it a while. When I last turned it on it said my Chip was unformatted and asked if I wanted to format it. I have a number of pictures on the chip and of course do not want to loose them by formatting. When I access the chip with a computer it tells me the chip is not formatted. A new chip works fine in the camera. How can I access my pictures on the rogue chip (SD Kingston 1GB)?


Answers :

Dear Bill,
It seems that your SD card is corrupted now, you cannot do anything to recover that. try formating it see if it works or not if no then all you need is to replace it with a new SD Card. or you can try out your local photo shops if they have any solutions.
SD cards are just like old Floppy disks, no one knows when they get corrupted.
Sorry
