Re: How do I format the E Drive without erasing the data?

You could "upload" your pictures from the camera using the "usb" cable
that came with your camera. I very seldom rmove my memory stick from my
camera or any other machines, I am always afraid of "static" electrcity
from my hand. Many people do not realize how much voltage static
electricity can generate. ( albeit with low current).
Let us know how you make out.
