View Full Version : SSSS: losing pictures
03-05-2008, 06:45 AM
I just got home from a trip to Costa Rica, took about 700+ pictures. I wanted to take a look at them, and so I copied them from the SD card to my hard drive. however, somehow, i must have done something wrong, b/c after file #200, it stopped showing the thumbnails. when i try to open it with photoshop, it says it's corrupted or something.
i'm soooo upset right now. please...is there anything positive anyone can help me with?!

DON'T DO ANYTHING TO THE CARD!! Don't format it & don't write to it. There's a good chance that you can recover your pics.
Here's a recovery tool (http://www.datarescue.com/photorescue/) specifically for photo cards that I've used successfully in the past. Download the trial & then buy the full version if it looks like it'll recover them.

What were you using to copy them? Picasa?

i just copied/pasted straight from the disk reader
from reading lots of forums, i think it has something to do with my buffer not being able to to keep up with so many pix being copied at once. i think it somehow overwritten the rest.:throw: :throw: :throw: :bawl: :ugh: :faint:

The tool JeffBx provided is a good one. Give it a go.

Turns out it was my card reader that was faulty. And thanx to Jeffbx's suggestion, I bought that program and it was able to recover almost all the pictures. WHEWWWW!

I guess that's how you spell 'relief'! Glad you got the pictures back.
