Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera ?

Nikon Coolpix L18 suddenly states that card is not formatted.

\015 I took a couple a hundred photos and a few videos with my Niko Coolpix L18 with a 2GB memory card. Before taking the photos and videos, I formatted the card in the camera. Suddenly, I turned on the camera for use and a message stating,''Card not formatted, format now?'' popped up. When I tried to download the photos into my computer, it says, ''Cannot use card''. What can I do to get these pictures?\015
