Kingston 16gb elite pro compactflash car...

Specs: Windows XP
I have a 16GB Kingston elite pro card, I took photos with it in my Minolta A200 yesterday, The photos can be looked at and gone through on the camera, but they cannot be seen on the PC, when inserting the card into a reader, I see the folder, and 2 others on the card, But am unable to see anything IN The folder that contain the pictures I took yesterday (folder name acquired through the camera)
I have tried loading these photos various ways, with no success... Using a dazzle CF reader, using my Kodak 5300, and using easyCAP and cables to the camera.
I'd really hate to lose these photos of my grandkids at the apple orchard., so, if anyone has any suggestions, as to how I can try to get these photos onto my PC I'd be very glad to try them.
(I have tried 2 different recovery programs as well, with no success, I also copied the photos,. to "email" size within the camera, and have had no success getting the photos off.

'I have tried loading these photos various ways, with no success'

are you using the PC's built in reader or a usb card reader? Most PC card readers are limited to a certain size. A USB card reader should work for you.

Jpeg pictures on a card are not hidden system files, nor would it matter if the extention wasn't showing. You don't need to do either of Sabrish's suggestions.
I suspect xpuserforeal has the correct answer. Also older external readers wont read cards over 2 gigs in size. How old is your reader if it's an external one?

Are you using a card reader that can handle an 8 gig card? Older card readers and many buit-in card readers can't read cards larger than 2 gigs.

"That was mentioned in response #1"

Yes it was, but recoversd mentioned plugging his card into the computer and apparently didn't bother absorbing the info from the first post, so I pointed it out to him again.
