How to Recover Data From a Dead or broken memory card
- Step 1: Select your camera brand and file type to recover (photo/video/audio).
- Step 2: CardRecovery will scan your CF Card for lost files.
- Step 3: CardRecovery will display all the recovered pictures in thumbnails to allow you to select the desired pictures before saving.
Usually, in less than 10 minutes, you will get back all or most of your lost photos from the CF Card using the software. Using Card Recovery is safe because it performs read-only operations on your source card and it saves the recovered pictures to a destination folder you specify.
1. For a damaged or file system corrupted CF Card, Windows may prompt you to format the CF Card when it attempts to read and access the card. Please ignore that message and do not format it before you recover the lost photos.
2. To avoid possibly overwriting, do not take more pictures on the same memory card before you recover them. But if you have done that, try CardRecovery and it may still be able to recover the remainder pictures in most cases, but the pictures that were written over are unrecoverable.
3. When you connect your digital camera to your computer, it may not appear as a drive letter in "My Computer", an external CF Card reader is needed. It will allow CardRecovery to access your memory card and recover the lost pictures. Some new desktops and laptops may already build in card reader.
