Specs: windows xp
i have an m2 memory card. every time i try to connect it to my computer, a dialog box appears asking to format my memory card. if i do that- all my files are gonna get deleted. although i have usb digital media recovery software, i'm not entirely sure if it will recover my files. so can some one please tell me if i should go ahead and format it? will i be able to recover my stuff? if not, then how can i extract my files from the memory card without formatting it?

Formatting will delete the data on it so try some recovery software like Recuva:

Try using testdisk to repair the partition (formatting). Get testdisk at the link below. Be sure to read all the tutorials before use for best results. Improper removal of the memory card is the probable cause of this issue. You should always use the icon by the clock to disconnect the device before removal.
