Have you tried recovering it using a bit of software called Recuva?

yep...tried recuva . only show a few music files!!!. But no photos recovered!!!.......

sounds like a fake sd card

I remember my brother got a PSP hacked and got a cheap Sony MemoryStick Duo 4 GB for 10 quid where as I payed 80 quid for mine (this was in 2006) anyway when he got his delivered, formatted it and only saw 512MB instead of 4GB and even copying files to it, they got corrupted after a few days where as mine has had no fault at all.

Thanks everyone ~ REP given to all (like this comment)
Phoned up sandisk, all the software they advised couldn't help, so i just had to be "BRAVE" and formatted the damn thing!!!......... got my 2GB back but all my music/photos now gone........:(

Am rubbish at technical stuff but our digital camera wasnt storing stuff on our memory card. I went to shop to buy another card and got talking to guy in store - he told me that putting the memory card directly into the laptop (you know that wee sd slot) causes problems and corrupts the memory card.

Stopped doing it now and just connect camera up via cable now

p.s he did say that doesnt happen ALL THE TIME but a lot of the time.

Use the program link in post 7. It can recover your photos even after formatting. The program is free.
