With a physically damaged card the only option is to send it to a data recovery specialist. But their services cost a fortune, so unless the images you wish to save are invaluable then the only "fix" is to discard the card and the images and replace it with a new one.

If there is any electrical contact showing at all then you *might* be able to cobble together a temporary fix by using electrically conductive glue (from electronics shops, not cheap) to stick a temporary contact made from a tiny cut-off piece of an aluminium drinks can (make sure that you sand all paint and varnish from both sides of the aluminium). If you have excellent soldering skills then you may be able to solder on a temporary contact, but it's difficult to do without overheating the component. Either way, the job needs to be really neat to avoid damaging the camera contacts and it's safest to use an external card reader which can be replaced cheaply and easily if the "fixed" card damages the contacts.

    I had a similar problem twenty years ago when my wife and I reached the top of a 5000m mountain in South America, only to have the camera jam and tear the film. The (professional) processing lab then finished off the damage by ruining the remaining film left inside the camera. My wife was so terrified by the ascent that she refused to ever repeat it...

    The technology may have changed, but the rotten timing of serious faults hasn't!

I have never lost any pictures that I have taken with my Canon SD500 camera with a memory card but I ended up buying a 2 GB memory card while in Hawaii and was able to take pictures. For whatever reason,...

Please go to your cameras menu and check to see if they are stored on the cameras "internal" memory. Usually a camera will store pics internally untill the capacity is met then the remainder is stored in removable memory(pic card).

Retrieving images off fuji xd card

A clearer indication of missing images would be useful - how do they know the images are 'missing' have they seen them previously from the card?
If images have been deleted- accidentally then that's another story
Download PC-Inspector from the web
This is a free image /data retrieval program for such situations.

Card not initialised

You can recover the missing pics off your card get, there are some image recovery programs available on the net and most camera shops will offer a card recovery service but dont format before you get pics recovered.

Not formatting a card is bad. They need to be formatted on a regular basis because deleting images from card does not remove them and the next image taken only overwrites the old ones.
