my neice was using my camera's SD card to put some pictures in the computer.. she managed to copy few ones but than later she told me that she couldnt see other pictures from the sd card... the computer shows the sd card's memory not changed but i cant seem to find any pictures and even when i plugged in the sd card back in the mobile it says there isnt any pictures and so does the computer..

I would appreciated a lot if someone could be able to help me with it. i got tons of holiday pictures in the sd card and dont want to loose them.

Most of the time, the files could be deleted or formatted for some reason. You may take a look at this step by step guide to recover data from camera SD card:

You'd better take out the memory card from digital camera, and then connect memory card to computer with a use card reader. If you do not know what is usb card reader, you may see this wiki page

You can get the card reader from ebay or amazon. It is normally quite cheap, around $2 you can get a good one.

Another important point is that you better stop using the sd card before you get back your files. This is because that continue using the sd card may causes files to be written on sd card which may overwrite the space of lost files on the SD card.
