    My camera dropped from the seat of the van. When i went to use it the camera said i needed to reformat the card. I took the card out and tried it again and it was fine. I took more pictures with no problems. When i went to download the pictures into the computer the computer wouldn't recognize the card and says it needs to be reformatted. The camera still shows the photos taken. How can i download the photos and then reformat the card so i won't have future problems.
    i have an olympus c-4000 zoom. the smart media card is 32 mb PNY

    It sounds like your useing the "software" to download the images.
    Go out of software.......goto your "C" drive via windows explorer and look for the drive allocated for the camera goto the drive and open folder and drag images to another folder on C-drive.
