This is more than likely an broken ribbon cable problem. This cable in the lens flexes each time the lens zooms in and out and eventually after a long period of use it will break. If the lens will focus manually but not auto focus this is a pointer to that problem. It means a trip to the repair shop but check out the repair cost first as you may be able to purchase a second hand lens for about the same money.

First make sure that the photos are not actually on the camera's internal memory and not shot on the card to start with. Do this by trying to look at the photos through the camera with the card out of the card slot. Next before taking anymore pictures try putting the card into a different computer and card reader. If it still shows up empty you can try several recovery softwares online for free, only paying for them after they have found your photos and are ready for saving. If that doesn't work if you have a local photo store still they will offer recovery service and recovery services are available from companies like Be warned, it can be expensive.

Nikon's software supports Raw directly. There are 3rd party raw downloaders available for windows machines, probably have Mac versions too. Google for raw file software.

Let the camera dry out completely. If it was not salt water it may be ok. Put it in a warm dry place for a long time. It may take weeks for the insides to get dry.....remove the battery while doing this if possible.

If you have the camera on continuous then it may be that the charging is not keeping up with the shutter. Check the recycle time on the flash and compare with the burst speed on the camera. The burst speed on the 5D is fairly rapid.

This, most likely, will not help you. If it is stuck and you smell something burnt I think your camera has serious problems. I think this is the time to decide REPAIR or REPLACE.
