Then after you have copied all your files you can format the drive without any problems. If you still get issues reading or writing to the drive after format, go t ocommand prompt under accesories and then run as administrator.
In command prompt you can do type the following and press enter: "chkdsk f: /r ("f:" being the hdd drive letter)
In all likelihood, your SD card is formatted FAT and you are hitting the limit on number of objects in the root directory. Check the format type and if it is FAT, I would recommend reformatting as FAT 32 which has more lenient restrictions.
ALTERNATIVE: If you really do not want to reformat the card, you might try to remove a few pics to free up space in teh directory and then create a subfolder to store picture in. Object in this subfolder should not be counted at the root.
Verbatim compact flash card has over 200 photos corrupted files. I volunteered to take photos for local senior anniversary I was the main camera now, I have lost the content. Files are Dcim--JPO, POG and worse coded files not JPEGs and I even with trial acdsee repair I am unable to rename and restore these photo files. CVS photo was able to open some of the files with their program but advised we would need to find the proper recovery program to restore some of the files.HELP
When you format the card, be sure to do it in the camera, as the camera firmware writes hidden files to the card.
When you insert the card into the card reader, be sure to set write-protect, so the contents cannot be corrupted.
I suspect what may have happened is that at some point there has been a conflict between files written to the card by the camera and the computer.

Hi flashlal - I have a Cannon PowerShot S400 and I had a similar problem which uses a compact flash card. I could only view a few photos and it seemed like the rest were gone. I verified that my photos were on the compact flash card when I installed it in my pc and navigated to the compact flash card (You can do that by double clicking on the "My compute" icon). Then double click to the directory to where your memory card is located and navigate through the files. I noticed that my photos were there because the file size was in the hundreds of kilobytes (700KB and up), but the names of all the files were corrupt - they had symbols in the name. I figured at this point I had nothing to lose so I did a "check and repair disk" on the compact flash. To do this: take note of the directory that your memory card is located in (it should be something other than C:). Once you know where your memory card is located, you go to your start button on the PC, then to run. A pop-up window appears.The command to repair your disk is "chkdsk /f", however you have to tell it the directory of where your memory card is located. For me my memory card was in the E: drive so I had to type: chkdsk e: /f
Once it finished running I went back to the my computer window and navigated to my compact flash folders. I looked at my photo names. I had to rename all my photos by putting the extenstion of "JPG" back as the file type. Once I did this, I could then view my pictures. The only thing I lost was the added information that my camera puts on it like the date, time, and camera setting used to take the picture. I was fine with not having that because it was more important for me to retrieve my pictures.
