Lost 6D video from SD card!
on Jul 27, 2013 at 6:17:08 pm

I have lost important video shot with my Canon 6D onto a 32GB memory card! The card was formatted in camera before shooting an important interview with a client lasting over an hour. I viewed files occasionally during and after the shoot showing no apparent problems. A quick look when I plugged in the card to my MacBook two hours later showed working files in the shape I expected. However next day at my editing desk iMac (OS X 10.7.5) when I plugged in the card the files didn't show up at all. I removed then re-inserted the card and got the error message: "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer." The card has not been used or erased and I have run Data Rescue3 software on all of its different modes and got the conclusion, "Data Rescue was unable to find any files" each time I ran it.

This is the SECOND time that this problem has occurred with this equipment combination. I bought my 6D last January and have enjoyed the wonderful full frame still and video capabilities for months on a variety of different brand SD memory cards successfully on numerous and varied projects. A month ago I shot a card's worth of video shots on site at an event. The files were viewable in the camera during the shoot but disappeared later when I tried to capture them in Final Cut Pro X on the iMac. I had a 'cleanly erased' card but I'm pretty sure that on this occasion it was not formatted immediately before the shoot. The card was a trusted reliable Lexar Professional 32 GB 133x speed. Attempts to recover those files with 3 different recovery programs were unsuccessful save one with which I did manage to see the 'space' the files had occupied- i.e. the length of the clips and volume on the media, shot times etc. were there, but the clips now were BLACK with no audio, no other image– it also recovered a handful of still images shot during that same session. This Lexar card still sits in a plastic card case, unused since then, in hopes I can recover the files.

On this most recent occasion, I used an HP 32GB class 10 card that I have used enough before to rely on. And as I said I formatted just prior to the shoot. One thing that I know was the same for the two different problem shoots (besides the Canon 6D camera and its operator, me) is that While busy concentrating on the shooting, I let the cards fill up until I got the "CARD FULL" message. I didn't think anything of that, since I had a recollection of seeing that on other successful occasions. I have since read some forum posts that suggest that running a card up to the "CARD FULL" can be a problem.

CAN ANYONE HELP me to recover these files, or at very least help me to avoid it in future?

Thanks!

Yeah never let the card completly fill up that way - it doesn't close the file properly. Basically it crashes. Some have had luck recovering files using data recovery software but I can't recommend any specific apps for you

Hey! I am sorry to hear that you guys also lose your important memory card data. Honesty, about a month ago, I did get similar formatted memory card photo loss problems and found most of them were needed in next day. So, without knowing much about data recovery information, I also followed some data recovery suggestions online and took chances with some memory card format recovery software. Luckily, after trying several ones of them, I eventually had recovered many useful photos back.
So, if you also need such helps still, my experiences may also help you:

Or http://www.piriform.com/recuva
Hope these articles can give you useful data recovery clues.
