Can see photos when memory card is in the camera, but not in Windows...
So, my work has a camera, a Sony Cybershot DSC-S950. Overall, a crappy cheap camera, but it does the job.
There have been about 380 pictures taken with the camera, and they're all pretty necessary as we've documented things over the past few weeks. With the memory card in the camera (memory card is a 4GB Lexar Memory Stick Pro Duo) I can cycle through every single picture on the card. When I remove the card and try and view the pictures on the camera, I can't, as (duh) the card is out of the camera. When I insert the card into my computer's built in card reader, the card shows up empty - zero files ("This folder is empty"). The computer I am using is a Sony Vaio VGN-FW140D with Windows Vista Home Premium.
So, boiled down to the core problem - the card displays 384 photos when it is plugged into the camera. It displays nothing when plugged into windows.
Steps tried so far:
-Check to see if photos are stored on the camera's internal memory. They are not (removing the card also removes ability to see the pictures)
-Try plugging the memory card into the computer's built in card reader (no pictures)
-Try plugging the memory card into an external card reader (no pictures)
-Try plugging the memory card into an external card reader with another computer [Windows XP] (no pictures)
-Right click the memory card and check properties when plugged into either the built in card reader or an external card reader (3.32GB used, 406MB free in both cases)
-Scan the card with a memory card undelete program [UndeletePlus] - shows 4 files only, hidden files
-Try to open the memory card drive with "cmd" -> e:\ - this shows an empty drive with no files
