What camera do you have/ What card is it?
Make sure the slider on the card is not "locked".

How about pluging the camera into the PC via a usb cable to see if that helps out at all? if your able to view things that way it may be the card reader, if not then try to see if the SD Card has some lock slider on itself.

IF the sd card is damaged or otherwise unreadable by digital cameras or computers, through sd card readers, then you may have a card with a damaged controller (internally). If so, there's only one way to retrieve the pictures (trust me, I had this problem recently). There's a great website/service @ http://card-recovery.biz/us/service.php that can recover pictures by removing the interal memory chip and reading it. The company is Recoverfab and they saved my pictures that I was for sure were lost forever.

when you stick your card back into your camera, are they still there??? if not, they are gone forever... if your card reader is old, the controller might be gone on them....

Hi bellsy,

You should try to access the files via their absolute path. Try going into Run Line in Windows (Start>Accessories>Run) and enter the next path: "F:\DCIM\" (F being the removable drive for the SD card).

Now you should view all the files...
