here is it... solution from cardrecovery
Memory card is used by digital camera to store the photos it takes. Popular memory cards include SD card, CF card, xD-Picture card and Memory stick. For some reasons, memory card may get damaged on power shortage, or removal of memory card on picture shooting or viewing, or other various and unknown reasons. Usually, you will see error message like "memory card error", "card locked", "card error", or an error code on your camera screen and the valuable pictures on the memory card could disappear and be lost. Some cases, your camera or Windows may prompt you to re-format the memory card and refuse to take new pictures or view old pictures.
Once you have your memory card damaged, it is highly recommended to stop further operations on the memory card (e.g. taking new pictures, or delete, format the memory card). Data recovery software like "CardRecovery" is able to recover the lost pictures in most cases.
First, you need to confirm your memory card can appear as a drive letter in "My Computer", which will allow recovery software to access and recover the lost photos. You may try to connect your digital camera to your computer, if a new drive letter appears in "My Computer", it is OK. Otherwise, you need to prepare a USB card reader. There are many card readers available in market (e.g. SanDisk and Kingston). You can buy one from Amazon or BestBuy.
Then, you may download and install CardRecovery to your computer. Launch it from Start Menu -> Programs -> CardRecovery. You select the drive letter of your memory card, and destination folder for save the recovered files. CardRecovery will scan your memory card and locate the recoverable pictures. The process is quick and easy. Usually it takes less than 15 minutes.
Can I re-use the corrupted memory card?
For data protection, CardRecovery performs read only operation on your memory card and it does not change the data on the memory card, so it does not repair or fix the memory card. If you need, AFTER you have recovered your lost photos from the card, you may try to format the memory card before re-use. It is suggested to perform enough read/write test before using it again to take new pictures. If you are worrying that the memory card is unstable and may cause further data loss, purchase and use a new memory card. Your valuable and irreplaceable photos are more important than memory card. Memory card is very cheap. A new 2GB SD, CF or xD card is less than $10.
