If you haven't written to the card yet, you may be able to recover what's
on it by using "Foremost". Connect the card to your mac, and use

mkdir mysalvagedcard
foremost -i <your card device> -o mysalvagedcard

It should recover whatever files that are on the card, deleted or not. The
key point is that if you wrote on the card afterwards, certain files might
be incomplete or corrupted.
