Question about Nikon Cameras
1). Do not re-format this SD card before you've recovered all your stored photos back. In your case, the formatting process may erase everything on your SD card and make your data gone permanently.
2). Never save anything new on this SD card in case that any new file would rewrite your original data.
3). Plunge this SD card to your computer and download a SD card data recovery freeware to get back all your lost data back:
This data recovery freeware has helped many people around me restore their inaccessible data back from a drive or memory card. It can also work perfectly on your drive.

4). Save and back up all your restored data on another drive or card in case of data recovery failure.
5). Format this card to see whether it is fixable.

First do not panic! It is possible to recover your picturesif you take care. Take the card from the camera (powered off) and if it has a"write protect" tab then lock it now. Do not try and write anythingto the card or you risk causing more problems.
You can either plug in you camera to the PC as it shouldappear as a “Removable Drive”or put the card in a card reader attached to your PC.
Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you candownload a FREE utility that will recover your photos from the following link:
If you need something a little more "userfriendly" then you will need to buy the software. If you search the webfor photo recovery software you will find many.
One I have used successfully is RescuePro that used to bebundled with some Sandisk products. Now you can get it from the link below:
You can try the demo to see what you can recover beforebuying.
Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to the carduntil you can recover your pictures to your PC safely!
Whether this is the card or camera is difficult to say, did you format the card in the camera? If not you should. Try formatting again after recovering your photos & see if the problem recurs, if it does try another card.

When you format your card this erases all the pictures on it. They should sayt erase instead of format, it would make it easier to understand what you are doing. I don't know of any way to get the pictures back. Try formatting your card again, then go take some pictures and go from there.
