I've been using a digital camera with a SanDisk 128MB Smart media Card successfully for a year now. Just today, my card reader connected to my desktop will no longer read the disk, stating that it has not been formatted and would I like to format now. Of course, I have very important photos on there and wouldn't say yes. The card works fine in my camera and still continues to hold additional photos as I take them, thus I wouldn't say that there is anything wrong with the card itself. Last time I had a card go bad, neither the camera nor the computer would read it.
If there is nothing you think can be done, do you know if places exist to salvage data from SmartMedia cards like they do for crashed hard drives?
