Could you please tell me the type of camera (model) and the type of memory and the computer that you are running? You might need to purchase a memory card reader and plug it into your computer and then eject the memory card from the camera and insert it into the memory card reader. Some computers come with a memory card reader in them. I would try that first.
If you filled the memory card past its capacity, you may have compromised the photos that are on it.

You might want to consider NOT connecting the camera to the computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.
The error you mentioned is usually when the memory card is unreadable because it is locked.
If you check the picture below you can see that there is a lock button. If you slide it down the memory card will be locked and will not be readable, if you slide the button up it will be readable and will be unlocked!
1. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory.
2. Insert the card and again, go into the menu and do the format thing again. Do not stop to select one of the choices the camera has offered before. Go straight into the menu and format from there.
if you are a technical person or can handle the electronics then open it from the screws and see if the cable or points that connects battery to the circuitry are broken or desoldered or unwired... if you cannt handle it so dont try.. get it repaired by a technical person near u...
I know some of my cameras have a 'on board memory' and chip. Most likly the desired pictures are there, or the memory card conection (in the camera) is not making a full connection. can you clean the contacts?
