Question about Nikon D5000 Digital Camera
Unfortunately that usually happen when the memory card is defective. Stored files do not contain data, but only the pointer to a space with 0KB file.
When this happen there is scarce or no chance to recover the data.
First try reading the data using an USB adapter (egIOGEAR 12-in-1), rather than connecting the camera directly to computer.
As first step copy and paste files from the SD card into a folder in your computer. This will store a safe copy of the good files. Do not use delete, cut, and do not save or modify any file in the memory card.
After this operation try using a recovery software like the ones listed below to attempt recovering the rest of the files. Use a different folder to save the files after recovery.
If that does not help, it means that no file content had been stored into memory card. As said, that usually happens because of a defective memory card. Often it is possible to get the card back to work by formatting it, but better getting a new card.
