My 32GB card from we'd to Thursday at RIAT says it is corrupted. What should I do to recover my photos please.

I have used photorec many times, does a great job. Just runs over and pulls out
all the photos and movies it can find but does rely on the card being at least readable/mountable. If the card is not readable then there
are other things to try off google e.g Theres usually a thread or two on here
on the same thing so you could try a search to see if any other useful links have been posted.

Hope you get them back.

what is the make?

Lexar and Sandisk have rescue software included.

I've used Lexar's rescue service last year after 16gb card from a Millie Miglia trip including museums of Ferrari, Enzo, Millia Miglia etc got unreadable.

Sent back to them . They retrived all images and sent a new card for me.

Usually it's something simple, namely that the file allocation table ( FAT ) has become corrupted.
Do a search for something like 'sd card fat recovery', which amongst the hits should give links to free programs which will replace/repair the FAT without affecting the data on the card.
I think 'TestDisk' is still available free, might be worth searching for that.
Meh !!
