SD Memory card faulty. Need to recover photos
Posted on 2007-11-25
The memory card (CD Card) got wet when the camera was dropped into a stream. Ironically, the camera survived, but memory card did not. When I plug the card into a reader on my pc, it isn't recognized. I would end the effort there, but recently when I placed the card into the reader, the photo files showed up on screen for a moment. I clicked on the folder to transfer the files to the desktop, and the system freezes.....That has happened twice. Mostly, though, there is no recognition of a disk in the drive. I downloaded some freeware for data recovery, but the fact that the disk isn't recognized by the computer eliminates the possibility of that particular software.
Anyone can help here? Is there something I can try besides sending the disk out to a recovery specialist? There are just some photographs on the card from a trip that I can't get back...
