or something like that. My friend said he would try and fix it as he had
a pcmcia slot in his PC. But unfortuneatly he formated it to dos format.
Is there any way I can Reformat it to work on the Ogo again? Like with a
software program for PC( not geos, DOS) which can reformat it.

I've sent my OmniGo and my Zoomer through xray machines
at airports several times, with the PCMCIA cards installed in them.
I've never had a problem.

A card should be DOS formatted. The OmniGo uses DOS.
After formatting the card on a PC, then I'd recommend also
formatting it in the OmniGo. The OmniGo will install the
GEOS directory tree on the card when it formats it.
