Default Formating SM cards on PC with card-reader

Anyone wishing to Low level reformat a SM card should really use a special SM format utility to format on the PC. The one I use allows SM cards which have been formatted for MP3 players to be low-level formated so they can be used again in digital cams.
Its works a treat and has already recovered a couple of SM cards for me.
I've put it on my site anyone one wishes to download it. (200k)


In the past I've had a couple of SM cards which were not being seen by my old Fuji1700 cam. Despite cleaning SM contacts I found the cure was to cut a piece of stifish card same thickness and size as the SM card, then apply a tiny dab of isopropol to the card and insert it in the camara a few times to clean the internal contact fingers.
