Recover Phase One IIQ files (TIFF)

#1 Post by MikkelMoxness » 02 Apr 2014, 14:43

I have a CF card with Phase One's .IIQ raw image files. The card shows up in Windows as an unformatted volume. In my camera I can view the images. I've tried using Photorec but all i get is Tiff-files in preview size along with alot of txt's. These txt's seem to have recorded some camera and raw file information.
Any suggestions as to how I can get the complete raw files from the card? I've also tried Testdisk to repair the partition, but it has proven unsuccesful.

Using latest PhotoRec 7.0-WIP, in FileOpts, disable txt and tx? file families. Try a recovery.
If it still doesn't work, please send 2 or 3 unmodified IIQ files.

Thank you for getting back to me so soon!
I've tried what you suggest and it doesn't work.
Here is a link to three IIQ-files (zipped):

Thanks again! I really hope you can get something out of this.

Hello again. Any luck with the IIQ-files yet? I'm very close to sending my card to a professional lab.

I have try latest PhotoRec 7.0-WIP (latest version is a few days old) and the 3 IIQ files you send me are recovered as .tif without problem...
To do another test, take a small memory card, take a few pictures, run TestDisk, Advanced, Image Creation and upload the image.dd file. I will check if I can reproduce the problem.

Ok, but is there any way I can send you the raw data from my corrupted CF card, or is it too big (32GB)?

This is one of the files I am able to pull from the card with the latest Photorec:

It seems that only the jpeg preview is intact. This is the case with every file I recover..

Run TestDisk, Advanced, Image Creation. This will create a file named image.dd
As the forum is public, you may want to send me the link by email instead of via the forum.

Some bit are forced to zero in the memory card image.

In CF047160.IIQ, you can see the following information
"Phase One A/S" and "AutoWB: 1.25; 1.00; 1.72, Kelvin=4695, Tint=-0.0018"
In b0002180.tif (broken file recovered with PhotoRec) from the 4GB image, there are
"Phase Oje A+S" and "AqtkWB: 1*12; 1*00; 2*09, Kehvin93350, Pijt9-0.0012"

Maybe a memory card contact or the memory card reader is dirty and need to be cleaned.
