Default USBCP␀␀␀.␀␀ is the only file on my SD HC card?

I plugged my 32GB SD HC card into my card reader today and the only "file" showing up is USBCP␀␀␀.␀␀ which takes up 0KB of memory. I have thousands of photos on this memory card: please tell me I can get to them somehow! I'm using a mac and any information I've found about this problem has only turned out answers for PC users. Please helppp

I'd use photorec. It's free and cross platform (has Linux, OS X and Windows versions available). See this post for more info:

Recovering Images or Video from Memory Cards

One you recover your images (and make sure you can see the full size images, not just their thumbnails), make sure to format the card again (and I'd use your camera's menu choice for format for that purpose)
