I would suggest trying a cheap [ £1 ] Multi-Card Reader which supports Micro SD/SDHC from Poundland and see if that shows up your photos. Do not format it, as you will lose everything on it. Try it on a different computer if possible.

Thank you for the prompt reply. ive tried on 3 computers and 2 phones only my laptop recognises the card so I followed the instructions off tech adviser but it doesn't give further information. I will pop and buy a cheap card reader on way home thank you.

if you have anymore problems with sd card simply open the card to view all folders/photos then copy and paste them to the my pictures folder on your computer , it will then be safe to format the card as requested..... if the card wont format look on the edge of it to see if the tiny tab has been moved.
