Bingo! Tried an external card reader and I was able to extract all the 
images with no problem. Thanks for the help. I feel much better about my 
camera and SD cards.

Now here's an interesting question. Before I erased the first card, I 
made a byte copy of it (`dd`). When I mount the byte copy with the 
loop-back device, it says files are there (as it did on the card). 
However, I cannot access the files. Anyone know of any tricks I can use 
to access the files? I'd guess I would have to repair the vfat file system.
