The first thing I'd try is copying all the files on it (corrupt or not) to a new folder on your laptop, then try to access them from there. If that doesn't work, try scandisk or something else on the card. If that fails, it'* a loss.

what i would do is put your memory stick back into your camera and then plug your camera into your computer. From there you can search in the E or I drive and be able to access your pics. Then just copy the folder with the pics and videos on it to your hard drive.

There are very good programs that should be able to recover the pictures. Lexar Image Rescue & Sandisk Rescue Pro are the two that I have. If you can wait till tomorrow we'll come up with a plan. If you want to try it tonight there are some free programs you can try. Ask the guys over at the Popphoto.com forums which ones to use.
