and recover camera memory cards including Smart Media cards? If not, you need to find one that is. If so, you may need to find a professional service to recover the images.
I am new here and need some help. I have a Gateway DC-M42 digital camera and it uses smartmedia cards to store on. Mine is a 256MB model.
The problem is I can see the pictures on the camera (185 of them) and when I use a smartmedia reader on the computer, I can not see them at all. infact it takes forever to tell me that it cannot open the disk.
I have tried many disc recovery programs but that all say that there is nothing on the disc. I have tried, File Recovery, Digital Photo Recovery, Recover my Files. and Easy Reocovery Pro 6.4 and still it show nothing in the smartmedia card. When I connect the camera to the computer via USB I cannot access the card in the camera. All indicators show that it is connected to the computer, but still nothing.
When I access the card with the Camera in play back mode I can see all the picture except one. #169, the camera will hang in this picture, every time. So my guess is that this is a bad picture and restricting access to the rest of the pictures on the card.
How can I get them off their, I am not sure what else to try. I hope the brains here can help me with this.
I have tried to access the smartmedia reader on 2 different computers both with XP SPK 2 installed and get the same results from both, I also have used another Smartmedia 256 card in the camera and with the smartmedia reader and both work fine with the other card, just not this one.
Thank in advance
