(you tried to boot the newton without any extension, then insert the
card without any extension?)

Brian also has such an error (object not found) with the card.
To be honest, yes, I am scared that you will need to erase it.

(in fact, there is no utility to retrieve the data here, but the
content is not lost, just partially corrupted)

But what happens next, could you use it once erased?
