    Is the CF compatible to the card readers?

    Once, had a card reader that cannot read my SD but can view it in the camera, thought the SD was spoilt. It turn out that the card reader was the old type and after replacing it, everything was ok.

    Is the photos inside the CF very important? If not, you can try to format it and attempt to recover the files using a recovery program later. You might just be able to recover something after that, but this is not 100% fullproof.

    Is your CF cards bigger than 4G? that could be limitation of the card reader.

    If you want to keep the photos, as long as your camera can read it, connect your camera to your computer via USB cable, retrieve the photos first. then do the investigation later.
