Answers :

Probably you card is damaged. \015\012
\015\012Try remove the card from camera and use any memory card reader to transfer the images to your PC. Then formate the card and insert it to the camera.
1. Take out card from the Camera

2. Connect it to PC via external Card reader or built in reader in most laptops

3. Copy all the content.

The card problem may resolve by taking it out again and reinserting it in the camera. This is a very common and known problem.

If the card is also unreadable on the computer then you may have to format the card and retrieve the images easily via Softwares like Recuva or Recover My Files

Let me know if this helps :)
