Hi all, I have a faulty Hagiwara CF card (256mb). It just stopped functioning during an oversea trip for no reason. I took some bright , sunny day photos with it (the only bright days of the whole trip), and one day when I on the camera there is a message saying 'format or power off'. I didn't format it but switched to my Transcend and Sandisk instead. When I came back, I tried at least 10 recovery softwares but to no avail. I even tried low level programmes like Winhex but all I got were failure reports. So I am convinced that the card itself is kaput maybe due to bad contacts. Does anyone know any place that has the hardware to look into physically damaged CF card? Or did anyone come across the same problem before? Anyone has any other recovery method to recommend? Thank you for reading and all suggestion are welcome.
