I have a 128MB Smartmedia card full of pictures I took with a Fuji 2600 camera. Unfortunatelly the card is slightly cracked in the back and the camera shows a warning of CARD ERROR. Is there any way that I can retrieve the pictures or is this information unrecoverable?  Thanks

> is this information unrecoverable
probably, but if you can "bend" the card so the cracked part makes a connection, you might be able to retrieve the data

You might look at getting an external card reader and see if you have any luck with that (I saw one at Target for about $9.00)

Good luck to you. I hope you find something, but I think, since there is a crack, you may never get the data off it :~(
