memory card problem

6 posts in this topic

was on vacatation last week. a week into it, one of our digital cameras said "memory card error" and wouldn't take pictures or view the ones already on the card. Of course there were several pictures on the card already. is there any way or any place I can take it to have a chance of recovering the pictures?? I put the card in my computer and it does nothing. they were really good family vacation pictures that I want to recover if possible. good thing we had both cameras, so we were able to use the other the last couple days.

thanks

to recover files from a external hard drive that is corrupted.

seen a lot of progams that say they can do it to a memory card.

good luck!

I have sent mine in to the manufacturer under warranty in the past and had them recover the photos with great success. I have not tried it myself yet.

If the memory card fits in one of your other cameras give it a try. This worked for us. The error message went away, we recovered the pictures and then put a new chip in the camera.

A very good recovery software for picture recovery is Rescue Pro by Sandisk. Comes included with SanDisk Extreme memory cards. I've done a few tests were I deleted the pictures from the card and then formatted the card over that twice and this program recovered all the shots, multiple times on multiple cards. I believe its available for download on their site.

    • You have no idea....               Suck it up, buttercup...  
    • That was obviously his Republican side...
    • lambjm - keep at it. If you do, you stand a great chance of fishing for possibly decades to come.    Inspirational to me, and hopefully others, is our 85 year old neighbor in Hovland who finished up logging our land this past spring. He logs in a one man operation every day, except Sundays, and a nice day every now and again to fish with his wife.    He has been logging continually for 66 years.   Like clockwork he gets to the landing everyday by 8:30, takes a 15 min break at 10:30, a half hour lunch break at 12, and a 15 min break at 3 before quitting at 4:30. A few days last winter I was out on the land making firewood and clearing trails, and could barely keep up with his schedule. He plans to keep at it as long as he is able.    My wife and I saw him last winter, as we rounded the corner of our road, standing atop a 10' pile of aspen logs with a cant hook or axe in one hand, waving with the other. He appeared as a man less than half his age in terms of agility and stature.   Genetics are a key, but staying interested and active in an outdoor activity is very important to a long and healthy life.     
    • That is because he was fooled into believing in trickle down economics and the idea that cutting taxes in and of itself would solve the budget problem.   Some are still fooled today.
    • Starve the beast, only the beast got stuff on credit.   Reagan didn't seem to be concerned too much about debt.
    • We already know Uncle Bill's response though:  
    • That is a very nice Pimple spear!   They are hard to find. I bought a couple of them from Jerry Kelm. He said Pimple used spring steel from hay rake tines to make the spear tines.    I have not seen one in person with chromed or nickel finish like that, but there is a picture of one that looks exactly like yours on page 215 of  the book "Ice Fishing Spears" by Marcel Salive. I actually wonder if it is the same spear. I heard Mr. Salive was selling off some spears about 5 years ago.    Are you going to be our tomorrow? If so PM me and I will bring the book out to give you a look. TS and I are going to out in the morning.
