memory card wants to format when put in pc. help!
Nov 26, 2012

Hi,

a friend is asking me for help with a memory card problem. it's a new memory card that he didn't format, and a compact canon camera, that he's used before. He took photos at a friend's wedding and now can't get at the pictures. when he tries to open the memory card on the computer the pc wants to format it. he's tried on 3 computers. It worked once on his pc after use, but not now.

Would any of the data recovery sotware things deal with this? Has anyone solved a similar issue before? If the photos were anything else, I'd tell him to give up, but a wedding...
