Busted CF Card...

So I did a shoot last night, using two different cameras. My images from one camera came out fine. The card from the other camera appears to be totally blank, so I have a feeling that the card might have gone bad, or something funky happened.

I recall someone mentioning some software that helps to recover data from these cards, but I can't find that post.

Has anyone heard of anything like that?

I have it for Lexar cards. Haven't tried it on any others.

The problem may be the directory on the card being scrambled, if it was removed improperly. Often the recovery software can find all the images and create a new directory so you can download it.

If you don't have Lexar cards, try doing a Web search. You'll find several recovery programs.

I found this little app which pulled them off. http://www.cardrecovery.com/

For 39 bucks it seems to be worth it... it's not the first card that I've lost, and probably won't be the last.

Thanks for the tips -
