W90 problem

Hello all, I bought a W90 in June for it's ruggedness and it served me well in Afghanistan. Recently the pictures that I have been taking have somehow been corrupted. Yesterday I was in Bastogne, Belgium taking pictures and after I took a picture I would press the play button and review it, so I know the images were on the SD card. This morning when I tried to look at the pictures, there were only 5 left, the others replaced by a black screen saying "Camera cannot play this image and sound." Tonight, all the pictures are gone. It's as if my camera is slowly eating my pictures. I tried to import the pictures to my computer to try and view them and in the DCIM folder were files named like this !@#^*:". Any thoughts on why this is happening or how to fix it and possibly recover the photos.

Have you tried a different SD card? There are several free file recovery programs. Google it.
