4GB SD Card Won't Show up in My Canon Camera

"I have a 4GB SD card made by SanDisk, which doesn’t show up in my Canon digital camera. When I want to take pictures with my Canon camera, it says no memory card inserted. I cannot find any storage media in the camera. What is wrong with the SD card? How can I open the corrupted SD card and get back all files stored on it?"
"My 4GB SD card doesn’t show up in my Canon digital camera, so I cannot take a picture or view any data on the card. Other SD card can show up normally in the same camera, so I think there is something wrong with my SD card. However, I have no idea to fix the error. What I want to do is to restore files on the SD card and make the SD card work normally again. Any help will be appreciated."
