You may have damaged the memory card not the camera. Try the card in a card reader and also a different card in the camera.

Good luck

First check the memory card to see if the lock tab is in the UNLOCK position. On the top left of the memory card is a slide the moves up and down. The slide should be in the up position for it to be unlocked. A locked memory card could cause the camera to read a CARD PROTECT error message.
If you still receive an error message, verify that you are inserting the card correctly so that the spring locks in as you fully insert it. When performed correctly an Icon will appear in the lower right hand corner of the LCD screen. Also try inserting the card while the camera is on.
The memory card may also need to be formatted through the camera’s settings-- Note: Formatting will delete all files, so be sure to transfer any important files to your computer before doing so
To Format: Insert the memory card into the camera and press the mode button to get to the mode screen. Enter into Tools/SETTINGS and find FORMAT. Once you select format you will receive a YES or NO option. Select YES and you will see a FORMATTING message. Once the formatting is complete, see if the camera reads the card and functions properly

Camcorder says my memory card is missing

Turn on your camcorger, push the button menu. Select the rec media for video, select hdd so that it looks for the hard drive, Mine defaulted to the sd and was also looking for the memory card. Missed filming my son's 6th graduaton because of that!!!

Hope this helps

Memory card

When you use an SD card in mulitple cameras, each camera creates it's own folder beneath the DCIM folder. I'm not sure if you have a program that automatically opens when you insert the SD card in your reader, but perhaps you can try double clicking on "My Computer" and locating your reader/SD card and opening that folder manually. Once you're there, open the DCIM folder and see if there are multiple folders inside. Open each one to see if you can locate your pictures.

If you have a program that opens automatically when you insert the SD card you'll need to figure out how to tell it to look in other folders.

Insert the tape

There are a variety of things that can go wrong. The process of elimination starts by taking the 2 screws out of the cover and removing. While the compartment is open, push the eject button and observe if there is any motion with gears or not. The main cam gear should rotate a few degrees in one direction and then back. If you see no motion at all then you have problems that are going to require real work. Most often when this is the situation, this main gear, which doubles as the mode switch, is broken and this is a sophisticated repair to replace.
