hi, my partner recieved a new nikon coolpic s3200 with 2 8gb SD cards

i set up the camera about a week and a half ago and everything was working fine she recieved it today and took afew pictures

when we got home the card wasnt working i cant remember what the camera said

we too the sd card out, reset the camera and turned it on and off a few times

i decided to put the card into the laptop (windows 7 64 bit) and it said this

E:\ is not accessible. The volume does not contain a recognized file system. Please make sure that all required file system drivers are loaded and that the volume is not corrupted." any sugestions?

If the card was working and you are sure there should be pictures on it (and they are not in the internal memory of the camera), I wonder if you have locked the card, there is usually a tiny slider switch on the edge of the SD card. See if that is the cause of the problem.

ive moved the slider both up and down but its still asking me to format the SD card and im sure there is no saved images on the internal memory

when we first got it it was working fine and we did take pictures which did save as we looked through them so they are on them

is there no way to access them?
