Try a separate card reader.
This happened to me a while ago. A few of my photos got corrupted and when I plugged the cam into the computer, the computer couldn't read the cf card at all. However, I could still view some of the photos on the camera itself, so I concluded that only a few were corrupted, but those few were preventing the com from reading the card properly.
I solved the problem by investing in a separate card reader-- when I slotted the card into that, the computer could differentiate between the few corrupted files and the non-corrupted ones, and I could extract those without a problem.
