See if you can fix the errors on the card, or reformat the card, using a computer.

Sounds like your pictures are in main memory and not on the card like you thought.

You'll need to use a card reader and do the card on the computer. Do you have a microSD card X SD card adapter?

You need a MicroSD Adapter to make it into a SD card size.

Yep, that's why I asked if he/she has an adapter.

I don't know if just the adapters alone are for sale anywhere. The ones I have came with the microSD cards.

Is the microSD card a new one, or the one you had that you had trouble with?

Also, the card reader you are using, are you sure it is made for SD cards? Have you tested another SD card to confirm there is nothing wrong with the reader?

The pc doesn't read the adapter. The adapter is just a holder that makes the connections between your microSD card and the card reader on the computer.

If you are sure the card reader is good (it reads/writes to other SD cards) and your computer cannot see the microSD card at all, then the microSD card is probably FUBAR.

Are you sure the microSD card is properly and fully inserted in the adapter?

Check this Card in a laptop of any friend of yours, format it. If that laptop too doesn't detect it then its pretty sure that the card is obsolete.
