I am currently working on an application to read data from a MultiMedia Card, however the data was stored on the card in a non-windows environment.  

When i place the MMC into my card reader, windows does not recognise it, and asks if we want to format the disk now. Obviously I do not want to format, as my data is on the card.

Can somebody please lead me in the right direction on how to get visual basic to read the raw data from the MMC?

Hi shineyshoes,
Bad news, I dont think you can read it easily
Lets suppose the File system format is Unix based or an unknown. Windows will never be able to read such file.
The only solution is that you know what is the type of file system and make a low level program in C to read the file system bypassing windows Disk reading thing
