god!

i took some precious pics for my coy project.
i d/l the raw n jpeg onto my pc but i cant view them from my canon DPP.
i tried to reload but i was told to reformat my CF card which i was told all my data will be
gone. i put back into my 5dmk2 and it says i need to reformat the card too.

what should i do to read my photos w/o losing my data?
if is needed, where and how much to do recovery?

thanks in advance...

Wait, chope.

You already downloaded right? Are the folder(s)/file names there?

Besides DPP, have you tried opening either RAW or jpegss with any other program?

As for re-reading the card ... try using another card reader.

If both (or 3) card readers cannot, try another computer with each card reader again.

Whatever you do, don't write/erase/format your card in the meantime.

I really do hope can open in CS3 or 4 or whatever you're using.

Sounds like a corrupted memory card to me. I would suggest you don't do any writing to the CF and use a disk recovery software to take a look at the card. Most likely the FAT32 table is corrupted but the actual files are still in tact. In that case, it is a simple recovery for the software and you should get back almost all the images. The key is DON'T WRITE ANYTHING TO THE CARD...

Hi Bro,

I had the same problem. I recovered the files using PC Inspector smart recovery. Google for this freeware. It should recover most of the images.
