First off, make sure you leave your camera ( with all batteries and memory card out) with all openings open in a bowl of rice for about 2 weeks. It will take out all the liquid in your camera.
As for your card, you may be in bad luck. Try using an external card reader to read the pictures. If this doesn't work, your pictures are probebly unreadable.
You can send it away to a lab, but that could hurt your wallet.
Check back in a while, though. Electronics can be mysterious. You can try leaving the card in a diffrent bowl of rice, so the water comes out of it, too.
If this doesn't work, your pictures are gone. Sorry!

If your computer has a built in card reader you can put any photo back on the card from your computer by dragging and dropping the file to the drive letter that is your SD card. If you're trying to recover lost photos from a SD card Google "card recovery pro". It's a free program that will read your SD card and restore as many photo's as it can.

1. Forget about getting the computer to recognize the camera. Do what the pros do...use a card reader instead of the camera and download to a folder you create on the desktop. 2. Sorry, but "format" completely erases the card with no hope of retrieval. typrice_192.jpg

Memory card formatted in error


Once the memory card is formatted, the files saved or pictures will be deleted and there is no way to retrieve the images.

I would advise that you transfer the pictures first to your PC before formatting the memory card.
