    I took some pictures last night and loaded them on my computer. Then found one wasn't good and retook it. When I put the memory card back in the reader and clicked to load it it said the card was not formated, I clicked yes to format when it asked and it said the program would not allow it to be formated.
    While I was loading the first pictures my computer froze up and I had to shut down and restart, when I did I unplugged the card reader. Did I do something to damage it? What can I do about this? Or do I have to get a new memory card now? If I could manage to send it to the company could they reformat it or what?

    The card should be all right, although you may lose the images that are on it.

    Is this a PC or Mac?

    You should be able to reformat the same way you would a floppy disk.

    Well I have no idea what the problem is or was. But I just reinserted it into the card reader and theres my picture displayed. Last night I restarted my computer, reinstalled the program for the card reader and still nothing. Seems to be working fine today.
    I might not have tried it again if you hadn't said it should be alright.
    Thanks
