unreadable CF card
on Aug 28, 2013 at 2:29:53 am

I shot hundreds of photos for a client today. As I was shooting, I reviewed the photos every hour or so and they looked good. I also selectively deleted a handful of photos during the day. Towards the end of the day a few photos were "corrupted." So I deleted them and put in a new CF because I was worried about the integrity of all of the photos I had taken earlier.

I then reviewed the card in my clients PC and the photos looked fine. I was relieved. However, now the card is unreadable and says it needs reformatting on my MAC and PC.

Can my clients photos be salvaged???
I welcome any guidance on this matter.

This sort of thing seems to happen a lot to me. I broke down and got stellar Phoenix recovery. It works really well on cf cards as long as you didn't format them after the shoot. We have 2 mark II 5D's and a 7D. Seems like every wedding or big event we have a problem with at least one card.
Can you still see the pics on the camera? What type of cf card reader are you using? Did it eject properly.

let your fingers do the walking
