I took my olympus xd picture and place into my laptop and all of a sudden all of pictures were gone. I read another thread that there is a way to recover the pictures. My laptop tells me the card needs to be reformatted.
you maybe out of luck. It sounds as if either your laptop or camera isn't working properly. More then likely the card reader on your laptop either needs to have it's driver reinstalled or needs to be replaced. Your camera may still have manuctioned and may be formating cards improperly. In this case it would be able to read them but other devices won't. As for recovering any of the hundreds of free file recovery programs would work as long a you put the card ina card reader.
