    Default Recovering Corrupted Images

    Was in the middle of a shoot when my D70 hanged, had no choice but to take out the battery as the hourglass didn't seem to go away. When I powered up the camera again, the camera was unable to read the card, saying that it couldn't detect any image files.

    I brought the card (a Kingston normal speed 1024mb) home and put it in my card reader, about half of the images (I shot in Raw+JpegBasic) were corrupted and had names like DSC[3121.NAF.

    Is it possible to retrieve corrupted images with image recovery software? If so, any programs to recommend?

    Search for something called DIR (Digital Image Recovery)..
    Doesn't help RAW but can salvage some basic..

    I still lost quite a bit when I accidentially formatted my card the last time though

    Thanks for the recommendation.

    zaxh81: I did a search but most of the threads are about accidentaly deleted files, not corrupted ones.
