Possibly possible, Pete.
There is a small program called SDFormatter that does a very thorough error correcting format. It's suggested as the first stop for a new card, and used periodically, say a few times a year to straighten out catalog errors, etc.
It's from the SD Association, with both Windows and Mac versions. See
I don't know that this can or will fix your card problem, but possibly... Other software, that sometimes comes on a new SD card, may recover files.
