Question: Hello, guys. I have a Samsung 32GB Flash memory card. Yesterday, I bought a Sony laptop and installed Win7 system on it.

I stored many important files on the SDHC card, so I couldn't format it. But now, I cannot access my data, either. What should I do? Do I have to format my card？What if my files get lost after I format my card?
