“I have a Canon 60D digital camera. I use a 4GB Eye-Fi Pro X2 memory card on it. Yesterday when I took photos with my digital camera, I got the message “memory card error”. Then I tried connecting my Eye-Fi SD card with my computer, I was told the card needs to be formatted. But I can’t do that. Once I formatted it, all photos stored on it would be removed.
