    Default Help! Recovering photos - corrupt disk

    hi All

    Recently I was showing my friends photos I had taken. The next time the camera came back to me, the screen said "do you want to reformat?"

    1. I said no, took the card out (it's 2GB) card and pushed it back in - no joy.
    2. My friend tried loading it on his card reader - couldn't see any files
    3. Downloaded the recovery software, and it could not see there was a drive

    Is there anything else I can do to recover?

    Would be grateful for any other advice.

    Try this software:

    It might help, it's not free though.

    Best

    Try Sandisk RescuePro. Happened to my friends XD card and managed to recover most of the photo and video.

    If you leave around woodlands, you might want to pass the card to me and i can try to recover it for you.

    hey matrix - many thanks

    gonna try one more software at the end of the week.....then if that fails, will see if the manufacturer can retrieve the data.

    Hmm do you find this happens often, as you folks all have software recovery programs?

    I have been told that if all else fails, sending your card back to the manufacturer (as long as it is a reputable manfacturer) - they will try to recover the files and give you a new card as well.

    You can try PC Inspector - Smart Recovery. It worked for me, plus its free.

    Takes quite a long time to scan thru 2GB tho.

    http://www.download.com/PC-Inspector...-10261986.html

    It may also be that your card has permanently fail, in which case I don't think there's any easy solution to recover the pics.

    good luck!

    I believe this problem is common for USB storage devices like flash thumb drive , ext. USB removable HD and USB card reader. It should be caused by the incompatible USB storage driver which corrupt the FAT of the media. Only recover application can restore the files or images back. My recommendation is do not use these devices for unknown PC esp. friend's PC. That is also why I recommend NAS for backup instead of USB removable HD.

    Try www.datasavers.com.sg if you need the data badly. Should be the lowest price in Singapore for professional recovery. My hdd recovered there.
