I own recuva, it works, deep scan will find all kinds of things. But, if your card failed, nothing will find or recover anything. Recuva will rebuild a TOC, find images and discover formatted data or erased cards. But no software can read a dead card. That might be your problem?

Good Luck!


You're probably right - it was not a formatting problem but a real defective card.  However, after trying the Sandisk and Recuva software without success, I put the card back in my camera, formatted it ... and it worked.  Very weird.  Not that I would ever use it again during a client's photo session - I don't trust it anymore.

Wise decision!  ;D (unless the problem is the camera) Just tossed that in as a strange divergence. Run a program that does a sector by sector error check. It will write the bad sectors/memory areas off the card.

But you are right, use it for music or toys or something that's just a copy, and never for important one of a kind work.
