    What type of memory card do you have, is it SD, memorystick/memorystick duo? There's ways to recover data. 1. Plug your digital camera to your PC via USB. Your PC will treat the card as an additional disk/storage 2. Use a data recovery software to recover data from the memory card.

    I've used a program GetDataBack to recover images from my brother's digital camera, it worked.

    When you say damaged, in what way?
    is it recognised in a camera or a card reader?
    Or are the pictures simply not there?

    As mentioned there are pieces of software for recovery which are pretty good. Alternatively if nothing works there are companies which specialise in this type of thing but are expensive so it depends on how much it is worth to you.

    I downloaded some free software off the internet called recovermyphotos, it worked on a Sony memory stick for me.
