recovery of a damaged CF card

#1 Post by davidmbooth »

I took about 50 photos this morning of a local marathon before receiving the dreaded CF err screen. After placing the card in my reader it shows about 500MB of the card in use but nothing under the dcim file. I am running photorec on it now and i can see files in the recovery folder but it shows me the photo in like the preview then deletes it and goes to the next one. Is there something i am doing wrong? why isnt it saving those pics for me?
