\015 My colleague and I, both Realtors, have Sony cameras that use floppies to convey photos to our PCs. Randomly, the PC can't access anything on the floppy and it is trashed. Says floppy not formatted.Yesterday my colleague drove 70+ miles to take 30+ photos of a listing and the photos are still viewable from the floppy in her camera, just can't download them. Is there any way to retrieve the photos?\015

I don't know where that is.

When I put the memory card in the camera it says 'cannot read' it. How do I format the card? I know it has the right 'size' memory. The memory card I am using is the same one I used a few months ago and I saved the pictures I took to a computer and erased the pictures off the card. Now as soon as I turn the camera on it says 'This card cannot be read'. Im frustrated as there is nothing in the manual that seems to get my camera working again. I have only had it for a year. Please HELP!

When I open the S52 folder in my computer, there are no files. When I then press 'get pictures from camera' it says that the camera is in use. What am I doing wrong?!
