So I got an SD adapter. There's no slot for it on my laptop. Do I need an adapter for THAT? So I put it in my camera. I put in a new micro-sd into that adapter and it holds pictures, but when I put the corrupted micro-sd card in the adapter and then in my camera, I get a message on my camera that says "memory card error" and "memory card locked". What's going on?

You should have got a USB to micro SD adapter, then you could have used it on your computer. There are several data recovery programs for PC that might be able to restore your files
But it sounds like this SD card is corrupted and failed.

I don't know what you bought, but it's not what you need.

It looks like the sd card one puts in a camera, but with a tiny slot to put in the micro-sd. I guess it allows a micro-sd to be read by a camera. I assumed computers have slots for sd cards. Is that not true? Mine obviously doesn't.

Not every computer has a SD Card Reader. Many laptops and some desktops have standard size SD Card readers on the side or the front, many Printers do also. You still need an adapter to put the Micro SD Card in to these readers though. Or you can buy a USB Micros SD card reader https://www.amazon.com/Digital-star-...+reader+to+USB

Spunk looks like the OP purchased the SD Card adapter from Micro to Full SD Card..

@usingpc as Spunk recommends, you need a USB card reader which can read either the full size SD or micro SD card.

@tristar The OP should probably clear this up, but it looks like the adapter they bought does not have a standard USB end on it so it can't be plugged into his computer, which is what they need, to try to recover data off of the micro SD card.
