    I recently went to copy my photos off my camera by putting it in a card reader but reader would not recognise the type card it was. When i put my card back in my camera it would no longer let me see my photos at all it just kept coming up with the card setup screen saying i need to clean my card or format it. I have tried wiping my card with a dry cloth but still nothing and i do not want to format otherwise will lose my photos. Can anyone help or have an idea what has happened?

    Try running one of These recovery programs on the card ..
    Recuva is very popular .. But I've had better luck with PCInspector.
    They can recover files from a formatted card if the card is good .. But I'd try to not format it.
