Recuva (pronounced "recover") is a freeware Windows utility to restore files that have been accidentally deleted from your computer. This includes files emptied from the Recycle bin as well as images and other files that have been deleted by user error from digital camera memory cards or MP3 players. It will even bring back files that have been deleted from your iPod, or by bugs, crashes and viruses!
Simple to use interface - just click 'Scan' and choose the files you want to recover
Easy to use filter for results based on file name/type
Simple Windows like interface with List and Tree view
Can be run from a USB thumb drive
Restores all types of files, office documents, images, video, music, email, anything.
Restores files from removable media (SmartMedia, Secure Digital, MemoryStick, Digital cameras, Floppy disks, Jaz Disks, Sony Memory Sticks, Compact Flash cards, Smart Media Cards, Secure Digital Cards, etc.)
Restores files from external ZIP drives , Firewire and USB Hard drives
i would recommend using a utility that performs a low level format of the flash drive... note that all data is lost on it. You may just have hidden files on it and your windows settings dont allow you to view hidden and system files...
let me know if you want to check for hidden files first or want a link to download a low level flash drive formatter....
Take the card out of the camera, and re-insert it. See if you get the same error. If so, it has likely been corrupted. Reformatting it may correct the error, but you will lose whatever was on it, unfortunately.
(Also, if you have another reader, like what most PC's have on the front of them, give it a shot - there's a chance it's the camera, and not the card.
