Virus on our memory cards

Grrr, we’ve discovered that one of our memory cards has contracted a virus and therefore possibly infected all of them. A little digging on Google told us that this is becoming more and more common. It also looks like there’s not a lot you can do apart from formatting the card (unless any of my geek family and friends has any advice?!).

So this isn’t a post about what I’d like to do to the people who created it (Tul is here for me to rant at), but it is a warning that it’s quite easy unless you’re on a machine that you know is correctly protected against viruses (not your average Internet cafe PC over here).

For the rest of the trip we’ll only be saving our photos directly onto our new memory cards and the photos for the blog will just be from our phones.
