The Olympus TOUGH-6020 is a rugged and stylish camera which is bound to awe photo enthusiasts. It incorporates 14-megapixel sensor, 5x optical zoom lens, HD movie recording and 2.7 inch hyper crystal III LCD. Waterproof down to a depth of 10 m, shockproof up to 2m and freeze proof down to - 10C, the Olympus TOUGH-6020 camera features 2GB of built-in memory. You can click and store countless images as the camera is compatible with SD/SDHC cards. Though, these cards offer maximum storage space, they tend to go corrupt. As a result of corruption, all your saved pictures become inaccessible. To tackle such situations, you can rely on an updated backup. If you are not able to access the required data through a backup, don't get perturbed. A digital camera recovery software can rescue you from an unfortunate data loss situation.

Consider a scenario, wherein, you are downloading photos of a recent family function to your laptop. While the process is still on, the battery of your Olympus TOUGH-6020 dies out. After charging your camera, you load the SD card in the Olympus camera and try to view the previously clicked photos, but receive the following error message:

"Cannot read from the card. Do you want to format it?"

Due to the sudden occurrence of the above error message, you are unable to view photos. Additionally, no new photos can be clicked and stored until you fix the issue with the SD card.


The Olympus TOUGH-6020 generates the above error in the following scenarios:

If the SD card is not formatted to be used in Olympus TOUGH-6020
If the file system of the SD is damaged


The above error can be fixed by re-formatting the SD card in your Olympus TOUGH-6020 camera. Since formatting leads to the deletion of previously saved content on the SD card, you must immediately use digital camera recovery software to recover pictures and videos.

These third-party tools can be used to retrieve data until there is no overwriting on the SD card, Therefore, it is highly recommended that you should stop using the affected SD card immediately. This means you should not make use of the card for writing, editing or any other tasks. Also, make sure you select a digital camera recovery application which is read-only and doesn't further damage the prospects of successful recovery.

Compatible With Olympus and other digital cameras, Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery facilitates comprehensive digital camera recovery in almost all data loss situations. Available for both Windows and Mac, this application recovers lost or deleted photos and videos, irrespective of the file format.
