    Do you have a cable to connect the camera to the computer? I've found sometimes my computer doesn't read the card, but files do show up and can be downloaded via the cable. I don't know why this is, but hope the idea helps you.

    use a card reader, not the camera. DO NOT format the card or try and take any more photos on it!

    You will need something like Sandisk Rescue Pro, to try and read the images on the card

    Be careful using that card in future. Don't use for important stuff, it could be on its way out, and die at any time, with recovery not working that time.

    My suggestion would be to throw it away and get a new replacement card.
