So...you have tried recuva ?
This list of programs that you sent me is not helpful. I already ran numerous programs like the ones you sent ALL DAY yesterday to no avail. I need the correct tool for the job, but I don't know what the problem is with the card, so I'm not sure which of these programs to use. I was hoping that someone would be able to answer some of the theories I listed in my original post such as: has the card converted the content to RAW files or is the problem that the boot sector is corrupt? Is it both? In addition, most of these programs (like ADRC Data Recovery) have different tools like undelete, raw copy, boot builder, etc. There is a warning "please be aware that wrong use of the software may result in data corruption" so without some expert help, I don't want to run any more programs. I need someone to tell me exactly what to do so I don't damage the card making it impossible to recover my files.
I know it's the holiday season and everyone is busy, but I would sure appreciate if someone could give me a few moments of their time for some detailed instruction on how to fix this.
Thanks in advance!

That would be my first suggestion also. However, I can no longer recommend Ubuntu to a Windows user since the adoption of the Unity Desktop in the latest version of Ubuntu: Instead I include my recommendations for a Linux version below. These are much more user-friendly to a Windows user.
I would try to run a Linux LiveCD ... and see if the card can be read from within linux.
No it’s not Fedora, openSUSE, or even Ubuntu. It’s Linux Mint.
