Do the photos show up on your camera? If you are sure that there are photos on it :)

Try Recuva first to recover your photos. Download Recuva 1.42.544 -

If not successful then PhotoRec. Guide to using PhotoRec recovery software.

Just curious: can you not transfer the photos directly from your camera?
