    I am new to digital photography and have just taken my first set of
    photos on my 16mb smart media card to Boots to be processed.
    When I went to pick them up they said that they could not access the
    photos and when I got home and put it in my Fuji finepix camera it
    said 'card not initialised' and I could not access any of my photos.
    I had looked at the photos before I had taken them to be processed so
    I can't understand what has happened.
    Does this mean the card is no good?

    Are there any free programs to download that may get the photos off
    the card or have I lost them forever?
    Any tips wpuld be greatly appreciated as I really am a newbie to
    photography.
    TIA

    PhotoRescue saved some irreplaceable photos for me:
    http://www.datarescue.com/photorescue/. They have a trial version that will
    tell you if it can recover the photos or not before you buy it.
