format the card. sometimes corrpution happens.

are you sticking it into an all-in-one printer? those often are designed to work with certain software rather then direct access with windows explorer. Mine is. I have to use the card reader on my pc rather then my AIO printer for non-photo stuff.

Try using an application like PC Inspector Smart Recovery (http://download.cnet.com/PC-Inspector-Smart-Recovery/3000-2242_4-10066144.html) if you want to recover data - if it can't do it, the memory device may bad, and if formatting it doesn't make it usable again, you'll have to replace it.

Sometimes there are incompatibilities between the memory card and the reader.

This may happen if the memory on the card is larger than the reader is designed to handle.

If this is in an SD card this could well be the problem.
