Recovering Files From Compact Flash Card

Can someone recommend software for recovering files from a CF card?

A free app would be a plus, as long as it's solid.

The card has been "erased", but the files should still be there.

Thanks much!!!

Don't know of anything free. But the one's that cost $30+ definitely work- as long as you've not added any new shots since the erasure. Is this software for Mac or PC?

Hi Ralph,

I had good luck with PhotoRec. http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec

Freeware. (thanks again Jonathan Zeigler) http://forums.creativecow.net/thread/280/507#678

Took about 6 hours to rebuild 14G of files (MVI #'s were gone, but content was same number of files, full duration). My problem was just saving/copying files though, I could view from the card. Lots of support at the site to walk you through the austere interface. Good luck...ML

Can you distinguish if it's the card that is inaccessible, or just it's filesystem? I know in Linux, you can access the raw device and try to get you data out of that (which should be possible, since it's usually just sequentially stored JPEG files). you should try to format the card in Dos prompt, once. If you are unable to format it in Dos prompt also then consult a technician who has experience handling this types of electronic gadgets.
