I'm not an expert, but when I had this happen, I took out the SD card and put it into a card reader. Then download a SD card recovery software to retrieve my lost pictures.I have a professional one called Tenorshare Photo Recovery on my PC that can recover lost,corrupted,deleted or formatted pictures from memory card.Get it from: http://www.any-data-recovery.com Hope this help!
Without the make or model of camera it's difficult to say exactly what is or has been happening.
What can be happening is, the camera can not obtain focus, light levels are to low or to high and out of the camera range of exposure, memory card is near full or internal memory is near full. A battery charge level may be causing this. Another thing is that the memory card may have a corrupt file and need the pictures downloaded to the computer and be reformatted to the camera. Formatting of a memory card is done in the camera it is being used in. Formatting should be in your camera "set up" menue

After you've saved your pictures, you'll need to format your card IN YOUR CAMERA. Reinsert the card in the camera. Put the camera in picture review mode. Press the Menu button. Select the tools menu, and scroll down to the selection showing the card's memory capacity. Select it, and select OK for format. NOTE this will totally erase the card, so again save your photos first before doing this.
I have had the same problem. Contact your camera via USB to your PC. Click on MENU. You do see "USB Connect" and "folder" at the bottom. Make sure that it stays on "USB Connect" click on round button in the middle and you will get 4 options. It probably stays on AUTO. Select PTP and see what happens. Adobe Photo Album started up and I got to see the pictures till the moment that the stick got the format error. I lost a couple of pictures, but got a lot back.
I'm not sure what the problem is, however realized that if this happens again. Shut your camera. Start it up again. Go into MENU, SET UP, Memory stick tool, chnage Rec folder and create a new. This way you keep the folders smaller and do not loose that many pictures.
If the disks you are using are new, there is always a possibilty you got a bad batch or you got some that were not pre-formatted, or were formatted for an apple computer.
I assume that there is some way to format a floppy disk with the camera.
Try to do that and then see if the floppy is recognized.
