When you put your card on computer, it is highly likely that your computer will fail to recognize the files on the card and prompt you to reformat. Say "No." Reformatting the card will erase all of your pictures.

Step 2

If you do know if the error is on your camera, inset your card in another camera. It is rare, but the potential that it is a camera issue and not a card issue is certainly possible. Even if you test the card in a computer and it works, you won't know for sure that it is a camera issue unless the card works in another camera.

Step 3

Attempt to open the card on more than one computer if you can. On most Windows systems, the card can be inserted directly into the memory card slot. This slot is on the front or side of laptops, and often hidden behind a panel on desktop computers. If you have a Mac, you will likely need a memory card reader. These devices are made so that the card slides into one end and the other end can be inserted into any USB port on your computer.
