hi you wonderful people have already helped me find a card reader that is compatible with my "patriot" brand memory card, and now that it's here i'm attempting to use file recovery software called "smart recovery" and it's asking me what "type" of file to search for on the memory card. there are SO many choices and i don't know a lot about this. the default file type it wants to search for is jpeg, there is also bmp, avi, tiff, and a lot of brand names listed. my camera is konica minolta - i see minolta. anyone have any idea what i should choose? and, if i start will the wrong one, will it further ruin my chances of recovering any data? thanks to anyone willing to help!
