It's probably just a slower card. So it takes longer to read a picture.

The pictures are still on the card. Plug the card into the computer, download the Nikon software, and use that to get the pictures.

The card could die at any point. They're less reliable than HDDs, and even those are considered a Very Bad Idea to have without backups.

NO ONE WILL HELP ME. and all I will get from places are guesses.

From your posts, you did not try anything aside from plugging into the computer. Did you actually use the Nikon software? Did you try the card in a card reader? Did you try it on another PC? Did you bring it to a photo place to have them check it? If you did not do those things, you did not do enough to try to fix this. If you say you're hungry but don't eat, don't be surprised that you continue to be hungry.

Any hard drive or storage media can die at any point. That's why people make backups. Unfortunately most people only think of making backups AFTER their drives fail. A big part of professional IT people's jobs is making sure data is safe and protected.

OK, that's enough, I am locking this thread. You are clearly not doing anything anyone recommended aside from asking the same thing over and over and over. Once you do something, feel free to send me a PM and we can discuss if anything else can be tried if what I and others suggested did not work.
