Question about Samsung Digimax A7 Digital Camera
Please try the following:
1) Take a look at the memory card; on it's left side there's a little switch. Make sure it's it the UPPER position.
2) If still the same, use a card reader/adapter to connect the card to a computer. Try copying it's contents and/or format it again.
If none of the above worked for you, I afraid it sounds like your card has gone... Some special store MAY be able to save your data/photos from it, but unfortunately, nothing is 100% guaranteed!
Best regards abd good luck,

First get the card from the camera and insert it in a card reader or in a laptop with card reader and get all the pictures from the card to save them ..
after that be sure that the card is not locked from the locking slide that it placed on the right side of the card ..than clean the contacts with some alcohol based solution ..(it might as well be a perfume or anything with an alcohol base..) and insert it again in the camera with care ..agin ..and again until will recognize it ...if it asks for format it ..it means that it has an error but the card is seen ..so if you saved the pictures you can try to format it ..if it do not want to in the camera ..try to format it in teh card reader ...by right click on the removable disk in the my computer folder..than choose format ..click on quick ...and select fat 32...and go for it ..
after that try again to see if you get rid of the files from the card that caused the error ..cause sometimes if you use the card and have files that the camera is not able to read this can also cause card errors..
