ok i have an issue and you guys are the only ones i like enough to ask to help my mom just came back from greece to visit her sisters and she had taken a series of photos the problem is i think the sd card is damaged in the upper right of the photo there is supposed to be a piece of plastic that seems to have broken off when i plug it into my sd card reader it doesn't recognize the card, and neither does the camera anymore plus i had used the same sd slot recently so i am pretty sure it is not the card reader, the copper contacts look ok on the card but is there any way i can pull the photos off of the card or am i boned?

if it's just a bit of the plastic that's broken off the side of the card the copper contacts probably won't line up to the contacts in card reader's slot any more,do you have a similar sd card to compare it against,from your pic it looks to me like one of the contacts has been broken off
