The error probably means you should clean the gold-coloured contacts on the card.
Use a dry cloth or cotton-wool bud to rub the contacts clean. Do not use any liquid cleaners.

Many thanks - sadly I had already tried that with no success. Not to worry, I'll just have to hope a photographic store will be able to solve the problem and recover the photos. Thanks for taking the time to try and help.

When it says to clean the card, they mean electronicly not physicaly. Clean it as in reformat it.

However, formatting it will wipe out your data. Try a program called Recuva first to retrieve your pictures
