Problem reading SmartMedia card

  henstep 11:18 29 Apr 2003

I have a problem reading a SmartMedia card (64MB) that holds photograph files. The pictures were taken on an Olympus digital camera but the camera now displays 'no picture' when I try to view them and the card reader (a HP photosmart printer)reports 'Card Access Error'. A week ago I could view the pictures on the camera but, having filled the card and started using a second card, there now appears to be a problem reading the data. If I try to take more photographs with thcard in the camera I get a 'card full' message which is what I expect - and indicates that the data is still on the card - but cannot be read.

I have had this card for a couple of years with no previous problems - and others cards that I have still work in both the camera and the card reader.

Does anybody know of any software/hardware that might be able to recover the data from the card?
