Photos taken and displayed on new camera received today - Christmas Day. Disk taken out and put into computer to look at. Then computer reads memory card error. Have tried it back in camera and it says the same thing. Now camera wont even take photos. Have tried other disks we have and no problem. We hope we haven't lost our photos of our special family lunch.

It sounds to me like the pics are corrupted on the disk. Only part of the picture is being displayed because the files are corrupt. The thumbnail is not a reflection of the data on the disk and when you try and display them in a picture viewer you are actually seeing what's in the file.
Your friends Camera has stored the photos taken on it differently to your camera which means it is unable to read them. Digital Cameras are not as "smart" as computers. The best thing to do is to copy the photos off the card and then format it in your camera which will the "reset" the card and will alllow your camers to use it
Yes, they can be recovered if you take care. Also if you want to maximize chances of Kodak camera files recovery, the first thing you should do is immediately stop taking more photos or videos (with your current digital camera) in case partial files are overwritten.
Then connect the camera (memory card) to a PC or Mac which has install a data recovery tool, check this site Digital Camera Photo Recovery for a list of good and tested recovery software.
Try inserting the card into the computer. Go to start , then my computer, right click on the drive that has the mini sd card. select format. this will restore the disk, emptying it and bring it back to new condition.
Card probably became corrupted. Try running a Memory Card Recovery Program. If that doesn't work take it to a place that'll do that type of thing professionally, a lot of electronics and computer stores do this for a small charge.

If you transfer the photos to your computer from the camera, you should be able to save to another memory card. I can't say whether or not the photos on the new memory card will show up on your camera since there may be certain requirements to display on camera screen.
Plug your camera into the computer USB or insert old memory card. A box should pop up giving you the option to view files. Copy and Paste (or Drag) selected photos to a specified folder on your computer (Like My Pictures in My Documents). Insert new memory card. Copy and Paste (or Drag) selected photos to the drive for your memory card.
I had a Camedia 560 and it had this problem. Take a picture and then look at your memory card or camera from the computer. I think you will see that there is a complicated structure of folders - the pictures are in one folder and there is some kind of index file in another folder. The camera cannot display pictures restored from the computer unless you restore the index files as well as the picture files. Sorry I can't remember the details, but one way to do it would be to copy every last thing on the memory card. Not very convenient.
This is a design flaw - my new camera doesn't have the problem and will display any picture I copy to it provided it was taken on the camera and not rotated or cropped. It doesn't mind other editing like putting a caption in the photo with a paint program. Panasonic Limix.
Has the card been out the camaera and into a computer in the mean time?
Or have you loaded back up stuff from the computer?
If you do not work this way- take the card to a processing store and ask for the images to be burned to disk while you wait - see what they say about the picture you cant assess in the camera.other wise it mean saving those you can and formatting the card in the camera.
Or if you have an access to a PC and recovery software see what can be pulled out .
