I have a nikon d50 and when I insert my card into the camera it gives me an error message saying " This card cannot be used" This card has many important fotos and I need to retrieve them. I tried using a card reader but no luck.

I have a exact memory card and it works fine.

Could the card be faulty ? Can I do something to make it work again and more importantly, get the fotos ?

I hope someone has an answer for me.

Here's a free utility you can try. I'd use a card reader.


Another choice is a free open source program called photorec. It's a command line utility (no graphical user interface). It works with over 80 different file types now (including most popular image formats). You'll see a download menu choice on the left side of the page.
