I am unable to view the snaps of party bash that were recently saved on a andisk memory card. Every time I try to access them, it asks for confirmation to format the card. Is there any way to resolve this issue and access the images again. Please help.

    First of all, You can take some precaution with SD Card

    1. Do not take any new photo on this SD card then
    2. Remove you SD card from camera/camcorder/smartphone because data could overwrite your previous photo and lost them forever.
    3. Connect this card to your computer via a card reader

    Follow the instructions of this post and restore your data

    Hi , John C, you can try Power Data Recovery, I used to recover data from my damaged USB. Hope that can help you

    see if you can repair your sd card (repair partition table perhaps), try deep search and boot sector diagnose (Rebuild BS)

    We have a list of Linux data recovery programs at http://www.makeuseof.com/pages/best-linux-software#toc2, and a list of Windows ones at http://www.makeuseof.com/pages/best-windows-software#toc5.
    Try any of the applications there and you may be able to get your data back. Personally, I'm rather partial to Recuva (Windows) which is very easy to use.
