Had you stored data on that card previously? Or is this a fresh card?

Yes, videos and photos were already recorded in the memory card. But all of a sudden strange files with strange names appeared and after a day the memory card did not open.

You could try a recovery program but it doesn't sound good. Below are links to some.

PC Inspector (freeware)
http://www.snapfiles.com/get/pcinsp...

Zero assumption Recovery
http://www.z-a-recovery.com
The demo is limited
It will only recover 'up to' four folders per run
But you can make multiple runs

IMO the best, but not free
GetDataBack

Ports on the back of a desktop case often have two ports connected to the same USB controller module that are ports one above the other - you could try connecting the cable (or if you're using a plug in memory card reader, the cable for the reader or the reader) to one of those and leaving the other un-used.
