I'm a 22yr old amateur photographer shooting in Puerto Rico for a few weeks. I signed up for nikonians today because I really need some help!

Yesterday, I was shooting in a rainforest, and my battery was getting low, but it made it through the whole day. I checked most my pictures after taking them and everything looked great. But when I went to transfer my pictures last night, only the last 9 pictures were there - in a DCIM folder. There is also a DCIO folder, which was 10 or so files with random symbolic text file names - all 0 bytes. There is also a DCIO " " folder, but I can't open it. I don't see another folder or anywhere else that might be hiding hundreds of picture files.

Unfortunately, I don't have a card reader with me, so I'm forced to access the card through a USB cord connected directly to the camera. I tried using a mac and a pc, but the results are the same. I'm using a Nikon D70s, and the memory card is a Kingston 16GB 133x "Elite Pro" compact flash card, like this: http://megapchardware.com/zencart/images/Kingston%20CF16GBS216GB%20Compact%20Flash%20Elite%20Pro.jpg

I've tried reading about this problem, but for most people, they can still view all the pictures on their camera, but they have trouble transferring them. I can view only 9 pictures on my camera. It appears as through hundreds of pictures just vanished, and I am really hoping that is not the case.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!
