SD card not displaying any files. How to recover the data?

Hi everybody, I just put the SD card from my grandmother's digital camera into my mid-2011 Mac Mini, but it won't show any files. When I plugged the SD card into my Windows 8 computer, the message "G: is not accessible" appeared. I ran a Windows app to recover the files and it only recovered 2 files. I thought I'd have more success of recovering files if I used my Mac. Which app do you reocmmend to recover missing file from an SD card on Mac?
