After successfully taking many pictures on my Kodak Z1015IS digital camera and downloading them to my computer just fine.
I purchased a new 4 GB new SD card and took a bunch of pictures that are not recognized by my computer? Computer says they are ".VFS files" (instead of JPG pictures). Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem?

First you should confirm if your digital camera is supported by a 4gb sd card.
then make sure that the storage destination of your images is in the SD card

I'll suggest you try some photo recovery software to recover your images first, then decide what to do nest,
Damaged SD card is the common SD card problem of the digital camera users. Generally SD card becomes corrupt due to accidental shut down. Your photos may become inaccessible when it happens. you might have to face critical photo loss condition. In order to recover damaged Sd card photos you would have to use Photo Recovery Mac third party tool. Some days back I got same condition while transferring photos. In that case i Download this free photo recovery software and recovers lost photos. Easy user guide helped me a lot to retrieve deleted and damaged photos. http://www.macphotosrecovery.***
Well! Generally, in your case, no matter whether it is corrupted or not, you are supposed to connect it to a computer or laptop via a card Reader and download a free data recovery tool to see whether your pictures or files are recoverable.
You could restore all your pictures back for free with the help of a free memory card recovery tool, if this SD card is only logically corrupted. (Don’t worry! This freeware has ever retrieved all the photos back of my brother from a Samsung phone card. I trust it will help you out.)You also could fix this SD card by reformatting it.
But, if this SD card is mechanically corrupted, you should consult a data recovery company as soon as possible. And the SD card also should be replaced.
In the future, you should learn a lesson to make data backups all the time.
Would this technically work if I copy corrupt files from my computer onto the card? (I had the SD card itself hold the corrupt files after they got ruined on the card from the phone. I then copied those corrupt files onto my computer so I could have them just in case I can retrieve them.)
If your want a reference, I have a thread about my issue I've had with SD card corruption here:
