How do I recover photos from a corrupted SD card on Mac?

My rather old MacBook froze and crashed while I had my camera connected meaning I got the message warning me I hadn't disconnected the device correctly. I then found that several 100 random photos had disappeared from the sd card both when you look at it on the camera and when you look at it on the MacBook. The strange thing is the same amount of space still seems to be taken up on the sd card, meaning it's gone from holding 100s of photos (it is 2 GB) down to only holding 40. I have tried a couple of free recovery programs but they can't seem to find the lost photos. Can anybody help me out? There are some photos on there I'd really love back.

SD card corruption error may be triggered when the SD card has been used on multiple types of devices or has been physically removed from a device unsafely. Normally, when an SD card is corrupted, the files on it can not be read or accessed. That's why you can't see the 100 random photos on your SD card.
