Recover Photos on Memory Card - Windows 8.1

#1 Post by schmidlop » 20 Jul 2014, 20:34

I tried to use photorec in Windows 8.1. Unfortunately it doesn't see any of my USB storage devices it only displays my SSD drive and skips straight to the proceed or quit prompt (no opportunity to select a different drive). Any thoughts on how to point photorec at my corrupted memory card in win 8.1?

Did you try both versions of testdisk 6.14 32bit and 7.0WIP 32bit?

You can try free version of Amrev photo recovery software. It helped me a lot. Its very effective and useful tool.

Tried WIP and Amrev today. Amrev saw the SD card but didn't recover anything. PhotoREC WIP didn't detect the SD card at all. Looks like I have to accept that those photos are gone.
