Problems recovering files from sandisk 16GB SD card

#1 Post by louisjconnelly » 15 May 2012, 14:39

Hello I was wondering if anyone could help me out at all. I am a novice so please bare with me.

I am a photographer and spent the whole day yesterday photographing onto a new 16 GB sd card.

halfway through the day i attempted to upload the images to my comp using my usual card reader, but my computer couldn't locate the device. Because of time limits i used a collegues computer which found the drive so i back up the images i had taken so far.

I then carried on taking pics and when it came to the end of the day i tried on my computer again.

The card displayed all 300 images on the camera briefly then came up with a display error message. Although it still registers that there are 300 files on it they cannot be seen.

When i finally located the card on my mac by playing with the disk utility preferences, it will only copy the images i backed up half way through the day, and cannot register the remaining two thirds even though the file names are on there.

I have had a play with photo rec but i am not sure i am using it correctly alothough i was able to recover 6 images i am having no luck with the remaining 295.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Not easy to help you as far as we don't know what you've done with photorec. Be more precise, and give feedback of what you have done.
