My digital camera uses a 512 MB flash card. Once I plug the flash card into my 8 in 1 card reader the files become corrupt. After I plug it into the reader I can no longer see the pictures on my digital camera. I deffinatly want to salvage the pictures if it is possible. The error message I get is "H:\DCIM\summer pictures is not accesible. The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable." I took the card into a store and they retrieved them last time it happened, I would like to save the $100 and figure it out myself. Any ideas????

Hi and welcome go Geeks to Go. In order to accomplish this, you will need some other device capable of reading that memory card. Since your camera can't read it, and your computer all in one reader apparently corrupted it, you have no options by your own resources. Do you know anyone that has a card reader capable of reading the card? You could see if they will let you try recovering it on their system.

If you put the card in your reader, are you able to see the device as a readable drive in windows explorer? If so, and you have a file recovery program you could try that.

try updating the drivers for your card reader....also your camera should have come with a cable that will let you hook it directly to the pc to use the camera as the reader....unless you use MANY different kinds of cards on a regular basis there is no real need to even have a seperate card reader

I can see the drive in explorer... But I don't have a software recovery program. Is there a way I can get one for free? Or is there one that I might have through Office that I don't know about?

-Thanks for the help
