Question about Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera
I can't open my 2 GB SD camera card. I took several photos while my Canon A540 camera was flashing a low battery symbol. Then I got a "Memory Card Error" message. Now I can't get to the several hundred photos that are on the card.
Is there any way to recover the photos. I took it to my local camera center and they tried three different recovery programs to no avail.
