So I just got done hanging out with some friends, and of course I took alot of pictures. So, I took some more pictures at my house. After I was done, I shut off my camera, took the memory card out. I previewed the pictures before hand, and it was fine.

So, I took the memory card and inserted it into my parents HP computer that has a slot for it. (I lost my USB Cable for the camera) So, as I put it in, it wont read it because no detection is made. Ok, so I think the computer is messed up.

I then put the card back in the camera, and it says "Card Error" I cant preview pics, upload pics, or do anything. Can anyone tell me a way to fix this, or at least get my pictures back. Please

EDIT- Also, I never had any problem before. My camera is a Fuji S3000. I had the cards for about a year. (I have two other cards, that work fine in the camera). Is there a place I can take it to so they can recover the pictures? Or any help would be appreciated.

It must depend on the camera make, etc. I transfer my pictures all the time with the built-in reader on my computer. I always select delete after transfer and never had a problem. What you don't want to do is "Close the drive" or "allow disk removal". I get this message from XP but don't use it.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Once the card is formated in the camera, you should be able to read, write & delete with the software that came with the camera. If you're using the universal OS software, it's best to delete the pictures on camera as stated before.
