Whoa! Note sure what kind of freak think happened but... Probably not a virus. From what I can tell the pictures ARE still there but somehow the folder has been corrupted. Try running Recuva and scan the camera and see if you can recover the photos with it... let me know what happens...

Just to add to what Benjamin said. When you run Recuva you will be asked where you want recovered files to be saved to. Do NOT try to save them on the memory card, instead create a 'Temp' folder on your hard drive and save them there. The reason is that if you try to save them on the memory card you run the risk of over-writing any files which may be on it.

 

Recuva is good effective software - it has saved my bacon more than once - but you have to be aware that all recovery software runs a risk of failing.

The file in the image you posted shows 0bytes in your DCIM folder, not 2.03GB.
