    Hi .

    try Recuva ( get it from ) . its free and quite good .
    Install it , plug in your Card and scan it with Recuva on Deep Mode .

    If lucky , you might recover your data .

    you can also try EaseUS Data Recovery tool -


    Minitool Data Recovery -

    Another great and more powerful tool i would recommend is GPart . its a linux environment but very easy to use .
    read the simple instructions under how to create a Live USB , and you should be good to go .
    its basically a Storage manager tool but it has an option of recovering data from drives .

    tell if more help needed .

    for some reasons your memory stick pro duo is corrupted. If you believe that your photos and videos are not deleted but they still there then you can try some recovery soft like:


    PC INSPECTOR™ File Recovery 4.x

    Lexar® Image Rescue

    now in order your camera to recognize again your memory card you have to format.
    Usually a memory card (volume less than 32GB) is originally formatted as FAT (File Allocation Table). If you push to format it as NTFS (New Technology File System), then here might be some errors when use it.
