Question about Socket Communications Serial Cards Serial CF+ Card (SL2700-096) Serial Adapter
First off, as a rescue measure, you should find a way to retrieve pictures form that card, and then try experimenting.
The simplest way would be to use a cable connection to your camera. Does your camera come with an USB cable? Or at least a socket for such cable? If so, which will be the case with 95% of cameras, then you should connect your camera to the computer and retrieve the pictures. Refer to camera manual manufacturer's online instructions and sometimes drivers needed to accomplish that. Many cameras will connect and install automatically as soon as you plug them in (sometimes they have to be set to "View pictures" mode for that, sometimes they have a special "PC mode", and sometimes it won't matter what state your camera is in.)
If you don't have an option to connect the camera to your computer, look for a camera that has this functionality and try your card in it.
As to why your computer doesn't see the card, there may be multiple causes - the card reader may be faulty, the computer may not have proper drivers installed for it (did it work before?), the card may have some data garbled and the computer refuses to open it, while the camera is able to ignore this... It's impossible to troubleshoot without more info.
Good luck and come back with a testimonial/rating if helped :)
