I have a similar problem:

I have a Konica Minolta dimage X50 camera with a Panasonic SD card 256M

which worked fine since April 2005. Now I get errorr message

"Unable to use card". I want to rescue my images and copy them to my PC.

What can I do? I did not format the card, nor would I be able to. The

PC does not recognize the removeable disk at E: as it was before. The camera

is ok since putting in another SD card works fine.

I wonder why there isn't some sticky thread about this subject with general instructions, "not to do" list and links.

You mean that Windows doesn't show anything on it?
Or if you try to access card it gives error message.


Try those recovery programs if they would manage to detect card.
Also try this, it's made by data recovery company and especially made for digicam images. (JPEG and some RAW formats)

PS. Some memory card manufacturers, at least Lexar, offer some kind data recovery service for their broken memory cards.

Windows does sometimes recognize the removable disk E:, sometimes just

for a second when I turn the camera off.

PCinspector displays:

Media:removable

Size: 0 byte

Drive state: busy

Progress: all 0s

Start button is hidden.
