When my memory card ran out of space on my Olympus Digital E 500, I put in a new card. A "card error" message appeared on the screen. This has never happened before. Now neither card works and when I try to download the photos it asks me if I want to format the card. I assume that if I say "yes" and do format it, that it will erase all my photos. Is that correct? So, I am wondering if I could bring my card over to you and have you download it on to a thumb drive so that I can save the photos on

Hey. I bought a new camera some days ago with a new Digix 4gb SDHC memory card. I went to Disney World and took normally a lot of pictures.

I checked and It isn't locked or something. Also, I tried using a memory card reader on my laptop, and it says I have to format to read the card. I REALLY don't want to lose the pictures.
