Having problems with your Pentax Optio S5n Digital Camera ?

I left my camera out in the rain. Memory card and camera broken.

\015 I left my camera out in the rain over night. Once I got it back I tried turning it on and it worked. After a couple minutes it shut off completely. I tried changing the batteries incase that was the problem and my camera still wouldn't work. Finally I took the batteries and memory card out hoping that everything would air out. It's now 3 days later and my camera won't work. Tried out my memory card and that won't work either. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem? I have about 1400 pictures on that memory card and would love to have them back. thank you.\015

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.

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
