Are you trying to save the picture(s) that's on the card, or just make the card usable and remove the virus?

If you don't care about the picture, format the card in the camera. (Your camera should have an option to format the card). All pictures will be lost, but the card will be clean of viruses.

The virus attack often causes the empty memory card problem. Don’t panic! The following thing you should do is to format it and clean the virus completely.
But, in order to copy off your pictures on this memory card, you need a free memory card recovery tool before the format stuff.
I find this freeware there:
Best wishes!

hey , you can get the picture back without any software,
after you copy your picture, you can format the usb.
go to CMD
type in : attrib -h -r -s /s /d x:\*.* (x is the letter drive of your usb)
