I think that the fat tables get broken for some reason.
I once had an sd card that made my canon digital camera lock up from
time to time.
Once erased (formatted) on a computer the card seemed to be ok again,
until next crash.
Testing it out, I found the memory card broken at some point (failing
writes after a certain amount of data). Therefore I trashed it.

On my way to a solution I found the following tool :

It recovers filesystems or using PhotoRec, it searches for photo
headers and restores as much as possible.

I remember it being a command line tool, tested the "deleted
photos recovery" on a usb key and ... it worked quite well !

Hope this helps,
