They haven't come back yet! I still think there must be smart kiddies who can understand the media specs I've got, and write some code to a pc parallel port, stick a few driver chips on a breadboard and get this stuff out and altered stuff back in.

It doesn't look like rocket science to access physical sectors 0 and 1, and on SM and CF, the prep. prog always works if in testing you screw a card (assuming it's not over volts!)

I'm going to get a Dazzle SmartMedia card reader and see if I can fix a 64MB Olympus card that lost it's format. I'll let you all know how I come out. I am hoping it comes with the SMPREP.EXE program.

Hmmm... Looks like a stalemate until SCM release a Dazzle or Zio xD reader with xDPREP!
