Fixing Card Error on Smart Media

Datum: 26.09.2004 Uhrzeit: 19:08:54 Santa’s Elf You stick the card in your camera, and get the message Card Error” Buying a new card is almost inevitable. I lost an 8mb and had a 64mb card at the edge of the old round file. What happens is that “Windows” formating has corrupted the smart media format on the card. This happens when you edit or delete files on the card thru a card reader attached to your computer. It is always a good idea to delete files and format your card only in the camera. Otherwise you risk the “Card Error” message the next time you try to use the card in your camera. The cards can be recovered but only by recovering the original formatting. I found this daunting process described here. I had no clue what was being said here but the breadth of what I read sent my 8mb smart media card to the trash. When I lost my 64mb card to a similar error. I felt it was worth trying to restore the formatting. But the above web site had some OS restrictions and didn’t seem to work without significant hardware software and knowledge. Seeing all the people with similar errors led me to believe that someone had to have a simple way to recover the card to it’s original state. This is when I discoved WinHex. The author breifly describes the process here. WinHex used a simple copy and paste editor GUI and some conveneintly supplied DAT files to fix the “Card Error”. It is possible that other “hex” editors can do the same thing as long as you have the proper DAT file to replace the damaged file system. Buying a new card is always an option though… : ) Been there and done that. posted via” ——————————————————————————————————————————————
