    Default Any shop do CF restore?

    one of my CF got corrupted and because the pictures are very important. so i don't want to take the chances of formatting it and lose the pictures in it. So anyone got a shop I can go to handle this professionally?

    My xD card got corrupted too .
    Can't open with the card readr in WinXp & can't read in the cam,
    showing "Card Not Initialized" and I managed to use Lexar Image Rescure2
    to recover all my 280 pictures with the card reader.

    Try download from below:
    http://www.lexar.com/drivers/index.html#software

    Think it can install as the full version.
    If you cannot install it, PM me, I will send you the version I have.
    BTW, I do not garrantee that by using the Image Rescure2, you will
    be able to 100% retreive your image.

    Try this... http://www.z-a-recovery.com/ - Zero Assumption Recovery

    Some features of the demo version in case you're not ready to part your $$ for the full version...
    1. Only (up to) four directories can be recovered in the demo version of our computer data recovery software.
    2. The demo version is unable to load the scan result file. However, it does save these files to avoid having to rescan the disk when you got the full version.
    3. In digital image recovery mode program operates as freeware with no functional limitations. List of known compatible digital camera models and image formats is available Known camera compatibility list here.
    So here, the Digital Image Recovery program is freeware and we need not pay extra for a full version, just to recover images.

    I believe the "PC Inspector Smart Media Recovery" is freeware apart from "Zero Assumption Recovery" so go give them a try and report to us your experience.

    As long as you do not format it low-level based, the data will still be on the CF. Regardless how many times you format it, it will not lose the data, only the FAT is destroyed. Only if you write new data to it the files stands a chance of being over-written and unrecoverable.

    Thereafter you can use a software to recover the files on the CF.
