I have a Fujifilm 1gb xd card with some files on it. Some text files, some pictures and a couple short videos.  I would put it in my card reader slot on my net-book.  One out of the blue when I put it in I got the message "You need to format disk in drive x: before using it." I tried using a card reader in every other usb port but same message. I downloaded Glary Undelete to try to salvage my files but it does not recognize any of the drives I have it in. Well not automatically anyway and I don't know how to make it look at a specific drive.

  Are my files lost forever? :(

  I have Windows 7 Starter.

Have you tried this card on another computer?

 

Try using Recuva to recovery your data.

No I didn't try it on another computer but I don't think it's my computer's fault because I continued using multiple other thumb drives and sd cards with no problem. I will try Recuva and see what happens.Thank You

Recuva pops up a message: Failed to scan the following drives: D: Unable to read boot sector

Now what?

This doesn't sound good.  If Recuva wasn't able to recovery the data the sd card is probably damaged.

Edit:  It seems that the company offering the product that I suggested is a dangerous site.  I will not suggest the use of this product to anyone.
