Having problems with your Olympus Stylus 730 Digital Camera ?

I have a 1 GB Olympus xD Picture Card that I am having problems with... Just a bit of background, but I've had this memory card for about 4 years with no problems... A few weeks ago, I had put my memory card into the slot in my Windows Vista computer, and it was working fine. Then that same night a little bit after that, I put it into the slot in my XP computer. That was when my card got messed up... It looked like the pictures got corrupted or something(there were little red X's in place of w


Answers :

Formatting won't make it any easier for any recovery program to find the photos, so I definitely wouldn't do it, but leave the card as it is until you've successfully recovered them. In my opinion, the best program to use is called PhotoRec and you can\015\012find it here. It's free, released under the GNU licence. (Be sure to save any photos you recover to your computer... not to the card itself.) If that fails, then move on to try paid programs if you wish.

After you've recovered all the photos that you're going to get, only THEN would I format the card (in the camera please) in order to re-use it.

When I put my memory card in my camera it says Err Cf and won't let me take pictures and won't show any of my previous pictures on the card on the screen on the camera. When I put the cf card in my card reader and plug it into my computer, nothing happens. The computer doesn't register the card at all and I tried putting a different memory card in the reader and it worked so it definitely isn't the card reader that is the problem. I don't care if the card is broken but I have a bunch of picture
