Recover data from Smart Media Card

How to recover data from Smart Media card?

In normal situations, I wouldn't bother trying to recover images from a corrupted memory card, but this was the occasion of my daughter’s birthday, so just imagine my horror when I stuck my Toshiba Smart Media Card into the card reader and encountered an error message! I Now, I put the card back in the camera and a message pops up saying 'Card needs formatting'. Although Smart Media cards are no more manufactured today, including me, many of you might be still holding it in your old cameras.

A quick surfing of the Internet threw up several application packages which claimed they were able to recover data from a smart media card that claims it needs formatting. I tried many of the programs; the first two programs I tried didn't work at all. They couldn't even recognize the card. Some of the programs could retrieve some photos, but none of the picture processing programs could open the file. Is there any way out? The pictures are really important for me, and I’m ready to spend a reasonable amount for it.
