Your pics are still there. When you pulled out the card from the computer, I'll bet you didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function. That's why your camera now doesn't recognize the card. You could try using a card reader or you could take the card to a store like Walmart and use their picture machines that make pictures while you wait.

Why my sony steadyshot camera dsc-w180 memory is not recognise to my laptop when inserted, but it support when i inserted to my camera, i want to transfer file to my laptop but no way please give me y

It is not only the card and computer or camera and computer that is needed. To interface anything to a computer you need a program. Most of the time called a driver. When you put a card reader to the computer, or when there is a card reader in the computer you need a driver that came with the card reader or the computer. To read from a camera, you need a driver that came with the camera. More and more, the interfacing of cameras becomes standard, so if you ever installed a camera driver it could be other cameras can communicate with your computer. But no guaranty it always work.
With the correct driver, your camera acts like an external memory to the computer and the computer can read the pictures on the memory card in the camera.
So if you use a card reader or a camera on the computer always meme sure you have installed the correct software that came with the apparatus.

The card appears to be defective. Replace the card.

There is a small chance if some crud on the contacts, but sounds like you have removed and inserted a few times.

Return it to where you bought it.. for exchange or refund.
You could try to format the card in a PC, but even that sounds unlikely by your description.
If you can see the card in the PC there is SoftWare that can try to recover defective pics from card.
But if you can not "see" the card in a PC, the SW is a waste of time.

Error message: Reinsert the Memory Stick"

The problem is with the memory card. It probably just shorted internally and is no longer useful. The amount of memory is not the problem, as I used a 4GB card for a long time and my card finally went bad. You will just have to get another memory card and MAYBE find someone to be able to retrieve your data.
