Dear all, just came back from a trip after taking tons of photos. When I tried to plug in my CF card into my card reader, I got the following error on my PC:

G:\ is not accessible. The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.

Aargh... anything i can do to salvage the photos?? I have tried different USB ports, different card readers, all cannot work...

Thanks in advance.

Can your camera still view the photo in playback? If yes, try connect camera direct to your PC via USB and upload direct

If this too fail, seek professional help... This is the danger of saving all into one card
Good luck

Try data recovery software. For example 'Sandisk card recovery Pro'. If this still fails , then u will have to look up the professionals to recover your data.

Companies specialized in data recovery. Not cheap, though. It finally depends on what you are willing to spend to get to recovered.

Save money. Use a good recovery software and DIY the recovery process.

Dear yehosaphat,

have you managed to recover your data? did you try recovermyfiles software as i do have it handy if anything happens to my memory cards.

if all else fails and the data is really crucial to you, maybe you can consider bringing your drive to Data Savers Pte Ltd - Seagate Data Recovery Services http://www.datasavers.com.sg .. They recovered my data several years back in 2006 or 2007... can't remember too long.. Hahaha
