Hi, I've not done much with Apples, but I suspect you are going to have to re-format the drive under Microsoft DOS. Unfortunately you can't do this on Win98SE. You need to find somebody with a Win2K or XP computer. The drive is probably not dead, just it must be re-formatted using the MSDOS FAT16 option in the pc menu.

The Dazzle reader is fine, I suggest you lend the reader and install utility to somebody with a Win2K/XP PC, Check they can see a normal card, then get them to go to DOS and do a FAT16 re-format on the MD and see if it then shows as a drive. Then re-format the MD in the camera.
